Did not dine here just called in for a drink and it was absolutely beautiful. The entire feel of the cave was luxurious and would have loved to have stayed for dinner.

Three things stand out at Jeff's Cellar. First, the ambience. It is not often that one gets to dine in a limestone cave. It was a surreal experience. The place was dressed up as a restaurant yet it still looked like a cave. Second, the...menu. There were only 2 set menus to choose from: Inception and Tanah. Both were excellent and creative. I especially like Tanah where local produce was infused into the dishes. I still remained amazed how the humble bean sprout so uniqituous in Ipoh could be used in a dessert dish and tasted good! Third, the service. The service crew were extremely attentive. Grace Chan was especially helpful as well giving us pre-departure tips to use Waze instead of Google Map to get to Jeff's Cellar. The meal was expensive no doubt but it was a dining experience worth experiencing! Do pop into the wine cellar below. It was very impressive, both in terms of the place and the collection.More

I was unsure what to expect. The setting is amazing, walking into the cave you are greeted by very friendly staff who look after you for the whole evening. It's like a movie set and is truly something else. Personally I found the food was...a bit rich and some of the combinations overpowering. I will say if you are not a real food person then this probably not for you. It is expensive so have a real think if it's for you.More

Incredible gastronomic experience. Had two menus - asian and western - with 8 course. Each dish was well thought out, beautifully plated and utilized local produce. Probably the favourite was the A5 wagyu and the lamb tenderloin mains.

At a glance, RM 675 did seem a little steep for a couple. But when the food started leaving the kitchen & hitting our table, it was worth every penny. Beautifully presented & nothing short of perfection. The Amuse Bouche arrived literally smoking. A pan...seared scallop topped with ossetra caviar accompanied by carrot & cumin sand, crispy duck & finished off with a cress. Just the presentation alone left us wondering what awaited. Once it it entered our mouths, we could only conclude that there was no better way to tease ones palate. Next up was the Foie Gras served on a bed of french brioche & accompanied by caramelised onion puree & grape juice reduction which was soft as a sponge cake & simply melted in our mouths. An absolute treat leaving you craving for more. Mid way, we had an assorted bread basket which were a mixture of store bought & home made delights which were so good that we couldn’t really tell the difference. Up next, the Lobster Bisque with the joy of having the wait staff pouring it table side. It was simply bursting with flavours from the pistachio spheres, corn kernels, lobster dust & poached lobster. It was rich & creamy with a lovely texture to it. We just couldn’t get enough of it! The cod fish arrived beautifully presented & pan fried to perfection, stewed in tomato consommé accompanied by saffron risotto, scallops, mussels & prawns. The Japanese Wagyu Beef was cook perfectly perfectly, medium rare & melted in our mouths. Accompanied with truffle mashed potatoes, burnt onion, porcini mushrooms, charred spring onion & Beef jus. Last but not least, no meal is complete without desserts. An absolutely mouth watering double chocolate accompanied by Ipoh white coffee mousse, pistachio gelato, sea salt, 23k edible gold leaves on a bed of almond crumbs. Absolutely delicious.

The setting with the stunning and magnificent caves coupled with the tranquil ambience is already breath-taking by itself. Dinner was delectable, albeit pricey, but this is after all fine dining. Expect high quality ingredients prepared meticulously, to excite the palate and to please the eye....My spouse and I both had The Chairman's Favourite. There was an option for the main, thus we opted for different mains (cod & wagyu) to try out. However, both of us preferred the wagyu. It was so tender and juicy! But this didn't mean that the cod was inferior to the wagyu, as it was equally as delightful. It just boils down to the fact that we're red meat lovers. And not to mention the impeccable service by Chef Boon and his team. They were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, and even moonlighted as our photographer, whilst pointing out the best spots for the photos. Will I patronize again? Definitely! In fact, I've just confirmed my reservation at this extraordinary establishment for yet another amazing experience.More
