The favorites dish here are: Gurame Goreng (Deep fried crispy gurame fisth), Tahu Kipas (Fan Toufu), Kari Kepala Ikan (fish head curry). On top of that,... More

On new year's eve, all seats were crowded here hence you need to reserve one week prior to your dinner. Though crowded, the service was good and food were served fast. We ordered ikan gurame goreng, tahu kipas, udang saos padang, cumi goreng and kangkung. To me, the shrimp with saos padang was the best after the tahu kipas.
