Food was tasty and reasonably priced. The highlight was the actual interior of the restaurant itself. Very unique and beautiful decor, and environment.

This is the first time that I visited the Baboon House since borders reopened after Covid. I had their signature beef burger. It did not disappoint. They always had interesting drink creations. I had cider before but that was not available anymore, so I ordered...ginger lemon beer and it was pretty good too.More

We came for lunch and had a great experience. We had burgers, artisanal beers, and dessert and it was all great. Try the avocado cheesecake! The service was speedy and friendly and the decor of the place is also awesome. Would highly recommend.

Visited Baboon restaurant on 26Sep22 at around 4.30pm to taste the delightful pork burger which I had in 2019. Was turn away as they close at 5pm. Very disappointed indeed as I had made it as one of my food itineraries in my Melaka visit...from Singapore. I couldn’t go another day as I had only a few days short trip to Melaka. Rdgs KTMore

A very cosy restaurant with kind and helpfull staff. The menu is burgers, part regular and part Asian influenced. The style of the interior is as if you are in a jungle, which contributes to the experience. The restaurant is clean, the burgers are good...quality and service is fast. I will definetely come back!More

This is a great burger joint with nice deco and great food. Place was packed, but managed to get a table pretty fast as i wasn't in a large group. wouldnt come back again as there's plenty of other option to try around the area,...but would definitely recommend others to visit if they havent already.More

I was hesitating to come to Bamboo House but boy was I wrong! The restaurant deco and wall art is amazing. Lovely Jazz background music. Lovely relaxing vibe. I had the greek burger and my husband had the Belly Pork Burger “WOW” we travel around...the world on holiday and I have to say that it was the BEST JUICY BURGER we have ever had. The Best taste!More

Fully agree with the last review - the place is housed in an tastefully decorated and recamped peranakan house. The food though is western but burgers were really good. I had a greek burger, my companions had lamb and a special chicken burger - all...very satisfied. Price point is right -though drinks were quite pricey. We had to wait for an hour but it was worth it - 2 concerns -1. Parking is a challenge 2. The well decorated and old styled baby chairs while aesthetic does not serve the purpose of holding an active baby- rest all A++More

Food was awesome. Perfect ambience to have family gathering. Will visit this place again. The only thing I’m not happy with was, it’s hard to get a parking lot around this restaurant.

Harmony I think is the main take a way! I mean the relaxing ambient, staff interactions as well as the the menu and presentation seem to be a great match for having a lunch in a hot day of Maleka. We tried pork belly and...it was superb. The only missing element for us was air conditioning that I think can enhance customer experience.More

Located in jonker Street, its a must go place for a cool heritage style dining. Offers variety of meal, western style. Price is reasonable for the portion you get. Good place to go.

Second time back to have pork belly burger and chill on a very hot weekday afternoon. Love the quiet ambience. Coffee is always good. Plenty of photo op on weekdays.

I am French and my wife is from Melaka and I have been totally shocked by the bad and arrogant attitude. The place is definitely not friendly towards family and kids. We were received with attitude and discouraged to enter by the owner (?) insisting...on the waiting time. Initially mentioning 1h waiting time then gradually saying it would be 1h30 mins while telling us not to wait inside but outside in the street near the road … obvious choice and very wise (I am sarcastic) when waiting with 5 kids of less than 9 years old of age Such business should not be recommended at all as it seems the philosophy is pure money making …More
