Staff (Christian) was polite, patience and helpful. Food - we only had desserts. Kueh durian was not bad. Chendol was pretty unique with the popcorn and having to use chopsticks. Drinks - House-made sodas tasted pretty bad.

Awesome experience at Baba Chew! From the moment we step into the restaurant, we were greeted by the friendly staff. Food is really yummy! Highly recommended! Will be back to the restaurant for meals again soon.

The restaurant should not claim to be a Peranakan restaurant if the food served is very far from what the cuisine is known for. The most disappointing on the menu is the kueh pie tie which is both tiny and tastes like it has been...filled with "expensive" canned food. While the service is fair and the atmosphere is great for its location, this was not enough to make up for the misleading restaurant name. This is the second time I've been to this restaurant in the past 5 years and I was terribly disappointed yet again. I hope the restaurant will consider giving their menu an overhaul, or to just remove the word "Baba" from their name because it is doing a disservice to the community.More

Very nice and authentic peranakan food. Service was excellent by Christian. Best dishes were the chap chye, beef rendang, chicken buah keluak.

We went there to celebrate my helper's birthday. I love that it is dog friendly so we brought all our dogs along! Good as there's lots of space for kids to run about. It is a pretty outdoor dining area. Definitely Instagram worthy! Food was...fabulous and service was amazing too! Thank you Christian, Lucy and Kelly for the wonderful service! They gave us a free cake knowing that we were there to celebrate a birthday 🎂! Will definitely be back again!More

I would have given this eatery an excellent rating for overall experience but because the menu has limited choices, hence I gave it a 'very good', hoping they can add on more variety to the food choices. Ordered the kueh pie tie which was just...normal kueh pie tie priced at $10, which I feel was way overpriced. Quesadilla Chicken rendang was good. Ayam Buah Keluak was flavourful and the chicken was really tender. The fish and chips remained crispy and hot despite been left for a long time. Food overall was nice but it was not that great that will make me go back for the 2nd time. We wanted to order a cake but was too full after 2 small bites and 2 mains. I RSVP this place via chope and indicated it was for a birthday celebration for my mom. Service was spot on from the start to the end. Just after we finished our meals, one of the staff (I assumed was the manager) came over and checked if we were there for a birthday celebration and said he will arrange for something. We were surprised with a nicely decorated piece of complimentary ondeh ondeh cake and the staffs sang birthday song. What impressed me was the staff did noticed what was indicated on the RSVP note. To me it makes the whole dining experience a great one! The ambience of the place was also good for friends and family to just chill out. There was also an outdoor space for after dinner drinks for chats and laughters.More

You can try out mobile apps like GrabFood or Food Panda. Or simply call to Baba Chew’s for takeaway, pay and collect the food when it’s ready. Takeaways will bypass the normal diners queue.
