“A Delicous Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Our family of four ended our stay at Suite 259 with a delicious dinner prepared by Aziz. The weather prevented us from dining on our suite's balcony. Instead we were treated to dinner by the window over looking the street in the beautiful dining space. Aziz prepared a delicious 3 course meal. The appetizer was a sweet/sour tofu with shrimp dish that was delicious. The main course was rendang rempah, a veal dish that was perfectly cooked and spiced. The fried bananas for dessert were a treat. The meal was well prepared and beautifully plated. Aziz explained each dish and even shared the recipes with us. Peter was a delightful server. The dinner was a delicious end to a delightful stay.

“Delicious, reasonably priced dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Made with care by our host, Aziz, in their beautifully decorated dining space. We had sweet/sour tofu with shrimp for appetizer, chicken with basmati rice - really yummy - for main course and lovely fried bananas for dessert. And it was fun to talk with Aziz about how he learned to cook and what he likes to cook.
