Great food, highly recommend the beef cheeks. Gulam Melaka desserts was very good as well. Soup, I had the duck previously, and the balls soup this time, both were great!

every dish was superb! the buakalak fried rice was the best and is a must have! great service too! the only downside was that there was not enough parking in the hotel itself so we had to park next door.

Simple restaurant setting but food quality and taste was best-in-class! I loved the Peranakan cum Eurasian flavours and compliments to the chef. I would certainly return!

Overall food quality was ok but: Buffet selection was limited thus not really worth the money. Not all of the food items were ready at the start of dinner. There was no station for the chendol and I had to ask the staff whether it was being served. There was no indication that customers had to place an order for the chendol. Seems like the staff are not familiar with the ingredients for chendol as mine arrived without any gula melaka. Had to wait for another 5 minutes to get it added to my dessert. Soup selection was good though. I don’t think I will be visiting this place again for Peranakan food.

Went there on a Saturday evening. Folklore didn't disappoint. Eurasian hubby said this is the best Eurasian after his granny's cooking. I agree. Honest food, good portion and earnest service. Well done!

Interesting food selection available. food taste close to what grandma would have done. We liked the buah keluak fried rice, sambal sweet potatoes leaves and ngoh hiang. the fish "flakes" was a little disappointing though. Overall, we enjoyed the food.

We love the food especially the desserts . The Sambal Buah Keluak Fried Rice, Kueh Kosui and Baked custard with pudding are really good. However, the 4 Angled Bean Salad is too spicy. The staff is friendly and efficient.

Good place to bring friends from abroad and to introduce them to #peranankan food. The balance of spices is perfect. Might be spicy for those who are not used to chilli.

There were some excellent dishes, including the buak keluak fried rice and the Assam fish. The beef rendang was a bit too spicy for me. We also enjoyed the pulot hitam.
