We have an open kitchen so you can see the chef at work, and smell the delicious dishes before they even get to you and we have a well stocked bar which includes many Asian bottled beers. The restaurant is decorated with traditional ornaments and authentic batik, finished off with a few quirks here and there. To the back of the restaurant are the 'Ladies' and 'Gents', including a seperate spacious easy-access toilet suitable for wheelchair users and we have also just received a 4 out of 5 star hygiene rating.

Visited with a business colleague on a Wednesday evening and both sampled the 3 dishes for £11 offer on the main menu. Food was really good - especially the beef rendang - and the staff were great. One of those places I've been meaning to visit for ages and I'm glad I finally did!

First visit in its new location (bit more central in Prinny Ave). Food didn't disappoint. We had two different soups as starters, both very tasty. For mains we opted for a taster of 3 different dishes each (6 in total for only £22). Service was good. Meal time between ordering and between courses was great. And more importantly the food...

I've been to this restaurant several times, and had wonderful food every time - this visit was no exception. The nasi campur is great, as you can try three different dishes. The food is really tasty, reasonable prices, and very friendly/prompt service.

Really good food - the mixed plate of starters is really good value and excellent food. Mains are just as good and the restaurant is set in an old shop - maybe a butchers or fishmongers as it still has all of the old shop rails and tiles. Lovely staff and lovely food.

We used to go to this restaurant lots of times when it was situated across the road but on our last visit at the present location we were put off by poor service.

My favourite restuarant in Hull. Food is wonderful, freshly cooked (so you may have a wait) but all good things are worth waiting for. Chill with a bottle of wine and nibble on prawn crackers and chilli sauce, you wont be disappointed.The mee laksa soup takes your breath away in more ways than one, and the beef rendang is superb....
