The restaurant food is still as amazing as it was . Once can still relish the taste with every bite. The staffs are friendly and helpful and the Chef Shereen is amazing woman. The food is extremely tasteful. The pasta , lamb, escargot, mushroom soup...and my all time favourite creme brulee . You need to try all the items on the menu. Rest to assure you will be back for more the ambiance feels like you are going to a home.More

Swing open the iconic red doors and one is greeted by a cosy ambience and friendly greetings. Dominique and Shereen’s Chez Papa has been consistent in terms of quality in all that they offer throughout all these years. Impeccable and attentive service makes one feel...at home and seasonal offerings on the menu excites diners like myself. It’s a classic place for special celebrations, to bring visiting guests, for parties (pre covid times) and some days, even for no reason other than to cheer oneself up with a hearty meal. The whole restaurant and it’s team radiates what Shereen and Dominique really are: genuine people with a love for food and sharing. It’s truly a wonderful French affair in this southern corner of Malaysia. Shoutout also to Lynn, Glen and the rest of the amazing crew. Must try: best onion soup in Malaysia, Sirloin steak, baked trout or snapper, truffle pizza, banana flambé just to name a few. Absolutely delish!More

It has been a while since I was last at Chez Papa but the moment I stepped through the red doors, everything felt familiar. I'm not kidding when I say you know the food is prepared with love and care just from the aroma coming...out of the kitchen. The friendly staff were attentive and Chef Shereen made sure my order of lamb loin cutlets were cooked to perfection and the grilled vegetables were done just right. Biggest compliment I could give is that I didn't even think of taking a photo of the dish but just tucked right in and literally wiped the plate clean. Can't wait to go back! Thanks to everyone at Chez Papa for a wonderful dining experience.More

My first time at this cosy and friendly restaurant and it was such a fabulous dining experience. The food is tasty, high quality and good value for money. The lady owner, Chef Shereen Mueller and her amazing team made the evening extra special with their...big smiles and warm, friendly service. Highly recommended and a must when you are in Johor next! Advance reservation recommended as the restaurant gets very busy on Fridays especially.More

The warmth and cosiness hits you as soon as you walk in off the street at this little French gem in the heart of Johor. Shereen, Glen and the team do a fabulous job making you feel welcome and the free valet parking is a...nice touch. On this trip, we enjoyed the unashamedly garlicy escargots followed by the sumptuous Atlantic Cod. The flambé crepe suzette is always a delicious and impressive way to finish the evening.More

Hands down the best French restaurant in Malaysia. The best steak I’ve had in a long time, and the goat cheese salad was to die for. Crepes suzette was amazing as well, we loved the live show. Attentive staff and the chef and owner is...such a humble dear. The decor and environment was warm and cosy, had a family feel to it. I’ll definitely be coming back a lot more. Thank you for the perfect French dinner, Chez Papa!More

You drive up to the restaurant, and its located right between a motorbike repair shop and an alleyway. You head in, and you are instantly transported to a land of awesome! The place itself just has a friendly vibe, and Archie and Lynn giving a...huge smile when you walk in and sit at the bar is just what you need to put you in the mood for good drinks and fine food. Me and my family had an excellent time, the steak, the soup, the foie grois, all of it was absolutely wonderful. We will definitely be back!More
