We took a good break here after visiting the blue mansion. The food was nice and the environment was very relaxing.

Very cute cafe with friendly waiters and delicious food. Our order was accepted quickly and waiter advised what it is better to try. The food was prepared and served unusual. I really liked the salad with smoked salmon. The salmon melted in the mouth. Highly recommended to fans of tasty fish. We dropped the spoon, the waiter came up immediately,... More

A nice little cafe attached to a boutique hotel. The cafe has a small courtyard plus indoor seating. The menu has a variety of local dishes, from which I chose Ikan Sambal. The food was cooked and presented well (the fish was lovely and moist), with the blue rice being an eye catcher! The courtyard is the sort of place... More

We went for dinner and everything from the beautiful outside setting, the amazing food, friendly staff who kindly charged our phones for us - (whew!) was fabulous. Every dish we ordered was great, the chicken samosas and Nasi lemak were stand outs but then the shrimp Vietnamese spring rolls and beef randang were a close second. We ordered the house... More

My step daughter and I were just wandering when we came across this gem of a place, lovely terrace and food was amazing. We had Helen's Curry Mee and the Nasi Goreng which were fantastic. The service from the staff was great and I must mention the toilet-very clean which has been a rare find on my visit so far!

I came for breakfast and coffee, the foods were okay. When I finished the maple syrup I asked for a bit more to finish my French toast, then brought me honey and mentioned nothing about they changed the maple syrup to honey. They thought I can't recognize that's not maple syrup? I called them to comment and they said they'd... More

We were staying at the sister hotel Muntri Grove so called in here after dinner for cocktails and the occasional dessert. Despite going every evening for 5 nights there was never a sign that we had been before- apart from the one girl but she wasn't always on the evening shift. This goes against the GTH brand as we have... More

If you are looking for an authentic Georgetown restaurant look no further. The menu caters for most tastes and the Malaysian food does not disappoint. Excellent food and excellent service in this very picturesque colonial period building. Did not stay in the hotel but it is set back off the street which will make for a quieter stay. Enjoy!
