“Great burgers and atmosphere”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

This is a place in Malacca to get the protein fix by enjoying a great hand-made burger, an iced coffee or a ginger beer. Really good value for money for the food, and the artwork adorning the walls pleases the soul. Beautiful compound!

The toilet can really be improved though.

“Like paradise”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We only stopped for coffee. We went to the middle courtyard, where there were plants and ferns. It was like having coffee in the jungle.

But what impressed us was the love displayed by the family towards to each other (and great service to us). We watched Grandma peeling oranges for the juicer, and looking after 2 stray baby kittens, with her grandsons attending to her. Such an affectionate family.

We felt that we were at home.

I offered to work there for no pay for a week just so I could stay there. The offer still stand.

“Interesting Place”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

I brought some friends to this place. Quite a nice restaurant with quirky interior. However, the menu is rather limited. They only serve burgers. The salad is not healthy at all. Instead it is so oily (perhaps due to the bacon). The burgers are ok. The ginger beer is not for everyone though.
