I can't really fault it here. The staff were very friendly, the ambience relaxed, the seating comfortable and the food good. We had only local food, with the pork curry being particularly delicious, but there is also a good selection of western food and fusion. Overall a good value restaurant for what you get - surroundings and quality above hawker... More

Summer is not a place you will stumble into unintentionally. Their location deep into residential surburbia sees to that but if you take the effort to hunt down this establishment, you're likely not to be disappointed. Compared with the venerable Sin Kheng Aun located in Chulia Lane, Summer is clearly no tourist Mecca with the usual marauding hoard of natives... More

The nyonya food is delicious. Tau Eu Bak (Pork Belly in soy sauce) was especially good. All the nyonya dishes I have tried there have not disappointed me at all. The menu is extensive with Western fares and some Japanese dishes (no sushi, no sashimi). Great for big group of people with different cultures. Those who are more adventurous may... More

Had a delicious meal here - really worth a trip if you want a warm welcome, good service and Nonya dishes (though they do other foods as well). Do try the cakes which are made in house, Not the usual overly sweet stuff - we had durian flavoured cheesecake (even if you don't like durian you will probably enjoy this)... More

If your fancy is outside nyonye or peranakan food this is not for you.They do have fish and chips for example but this always has a taste not quite appetizing.Been there many times

Surroundings and restaurant are very well decorated, chatty and friendly lady boss, location is good for a peaceful, relaxed meal. Generally pricey food, some of which are not reasonable. Overall, the Nyonya cuisine is good. Oyster shooters are tasty. Had one of the seasonal Western set meals during Christmas dinner, which had chicken with passion fruit sauce as the main... More

Had the whole family so we had the opportunity to sample different parts of the menu. They have a great variety including local Nyonya food through to western and some Japanese. Fish and chips were great as was the Kapitan Chicken. Friendly service and they were surprisingly busy but were up front and honest and warned that we may wait... More

I like the nice deco of this small restaurant, I would not say luxury...but the setup was colorful, a lot of green plants, nice lighting, old fashion way, unique, tidy and a 'home' feeling. There is also a bistro, so it mixed among the eastern and western. We ordered black vinegar pork knuckle, the sour type that I like, not... More

This is a higher end quality place to eat Western and some Asian dishes in Tanjung Bungah. The food is good to great, prices a bit high, but not too expensive. The decor is great in some rooms, a bit odd in others. Overall a pretty good choice for your dining.
