We went Calanthe Art Cafe for lunch. Both chicken and sea food dishes were really delicious; the service was very quick, presentations were great, everybody was very friendly. The prices are reasonable, the restaurant itself is like a gallery; there are many interesting objects and details to look at. We loved Calanthe Art Cafe, very recommended.

Walking into the cafe, you can't help but feel like you've been transported Back in time.The cafe while quirky manages to maintain an "Old shop house " feel to it. Love the quotes which can be seen scattered on the walls. I had the calanthe laksa which was to die for! Right amount of coconut milk and blend of spices... More

The staff were able to recommend me something based on my preference, and were friendly enough during my visit at a quieter hour (past 9pm).

We were recommended to eat at this restaurant by a local person we'd spoken to. It's in the old quarter near to Jonkers Street. There's a varied menu at reasonable prices. The service is notably friendly and helpful, and the vibe is almost 'hippy'. It's a great place to stop for an hour or so, have a meal and a... More

It's a nice cafe serving coffee of the different states in Malaysia which is quite interesting. I ate a dark chocolate cheesecake along with a cold Kelantan coffee. The cake was quite good with nice presentation and coffee was strong and nice. Would definitely come again for a place to hang out with friends.

Thank lowhng
