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 ...

This place specialises in Indonesian cuisine so best to order the ones recommended. I tried the buttermilk chicken but it didn't work. Instead go for the satay, grilled chicken and ayam penyet. Decent portion and usually this is where tourists are brought to.

This is part of well run chain, serving consistent Indonesian dishes such as Beef Rendang and Ayam Penyet, at reasonable prices. Decor is pleasant, and service is brisk. There is good selection of flavored drinks and desserts, which includes Chendol. Popular with locals

This was a delightful experience - very varied, fresh, tasty dishes served in rapid succession to our party of about 14 - quite spicy but more ginger/chilli than curry. The quality of the food and the ingredients was high, the cooking quite different to what I have experienced and the staff both efficient and friendly. Strongly recommend.

It had been quite a while since we dined at the outlet in Sengkurong and thought it would be a good idea to check out if it was still the same. We stopped going there and frequented the one in Gadong instead due to the travelling distance and the frequently encountered lack of seafood items there. It had been common... More

Tip - check your food. Mine was unacceptably cold. Fried chicken should be serve fresh and HOT. Don't try the bean sprouts, its also cold and limp. Money wasted.
