  • Was expecting to see some nutmeg trees and learn more about nutmeg and how it’s processed. Truth is, there are some nutmeg trees in the ‘factory’ and a shop selling nutmeg products - but that’s it. No...  more »
  • At first, I expect to see how the nutmeg was processed. When I asked the worker, she told me that she only sells nutmeg products. So there is not much to see in this place. Processed nutmeg is quite d...  more »

  • Dropby to have some complimentary nutmeg juice. Recommended prickled nutmeg, nutmeg ointment and nutmeg powder. There's a temple above the shop. Annoyed by the dogs though...
  • Came here off peak on an afternoon - did not manage to see the plantation but spoke to the plantation owner's daughter who gave us a mini lecture from her shop about her products and the nutmeg products and processing. There were samples of nutmeg juice and balm and fruit for us to try for free. A little out of the way but a good trip if going through batu ferringhi and spice farm.
  • I seen the old man is very passionate of what he have been doing for the past 60year. Proud of his products. N very educational place to visit.
  • Easy to find, driving down to the factory from the main road can be a little scary with its steep slope down. But well worth a visit - Ah Kong there is passionate about telling us all about nutmeg and how to tell the difference between "boy" & "girl" nutmeg fruit. And he was a sweetheart to give me quite a few samples of dried unripe nutmeg seed to perfume my car, as well as the wondrous alien-looking ripe nutmeg seed that is bright red streaked with black. Reasonably priced nutmeg oil, balm, nutmeg tea and nutmeg cordial, great as gifts as well as own consumption.
  • Owner explains on nutmeg related knowledge and questions very passionately. The nutmeg juices they sell are really nice and products are reasonably sold. Recommend place to purchase your souvenir if you like nutmeg.
