Amazing Indonesian Cuisine

Big fan of Nasi Ayam Penyet and have always fallen in love with their penyet. Same quality of penyet no matter which branch you go to. Amazing spicy sambal to go with and the chicken is so soft and juicy (never dry). Only recently I tried something new from them, which is the 'Tauhu Jakarta' or was... read more

Nice ambiance, nice decor although aging dining area. Food is average; serving authentic Indonesian food. Unfortunately didn't find anything special that stood out. Service is average with some waiters looking very tired.

Friendly staff, very traditional Indonesian feel and outstanding food! I love the ayam bakar especially. If you're looking for delicious and authentic Indonesian food in Brunei, this is a must try.

This review is for their branch in Sengkurong. After reading reviews on TripAdvisor, we had to try the ayam penyet here. Unfortunately, we didn't meet the satisfaction of our tastebuds. The chicken was sweet and not crispy. The sambal was not spicy at all. It lacked the umph of the Indonesian food we are accustomed to.

I am a fans of indonesian food..... And this is the only place to go if you are looking for authentic indonesian food. Among all the branches i think the one located in the Gadong is the best. Sometime the service might be bad but most of the time the dining experience is quite good.

Try out the gado-gado (indonesian salad with peanut sauce) - for this dish they have it until 5pm daily. They out they satay too, some are dip with peanut sauce, and some are in sweet and spicy soy sauce.

I get invitations from my business associates to had dinner at one of the branches of this Restaurant in Gadong. For me, Indonesian people, what is served at this restaurant is very fitting with our tongue, really Indonesian taste. Good service, coupled with the good taste of the food served, is the main advantage of this Restaurant.

My daughter, Janice Wee and friends always come to this Restaurant for their dinner. She was the one who strongly recommended to dine here. Many years ago, I did had my lunch here but ever since Janice requested me to try their latest dishes, I have been coming for more meals here.

This establishment offers refined and delicate versions of a variety of Indonesian specialties, prepared with great care in a semi-formal environment. The various dishes I tried were simply exquisite, although I am hardly the world's greatest authority on the wonders of Indonesian food ...
