Lady singers were enjoying themselves on stage and we enjoyed them. Cocktails are good and reasonably priced. Being open space to the street makes it all even nicer. We did not try the food. Service was OK.

On the corner in the mist of all the buzz. Reasonable priced, - a tad slow in service, as they are somewhat understaffed, - but staff is friendly, - but almost running in an attempt to cope.

Disappointing for a top rated restaurant at Jonker Walk. Disinterested waiters and very plain tasted food. However if you are into ambiance and live music then this is the place.

Good Place to enjoy your food and a drink while observing the crowds at the busy market open every weekend on Jonker street.

As a local in Malaysia, I don't find the food here is authentic. Ordered a fried rice with satay, the fried rice do not have any taste and the Satay sauce is not made up of peanut. Quite disappointed with those food and the price.

The service seemed slow. The live music is not what it used to be. They have added seating capacity - acquired the joint opposite. But from ordering to making payment, had to usher every time.
