“Ambuyat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

Ambuyat is must when visiting Brunei and not many places offers this traditional Bruneian cuisine.

I still frequent one of Aminah Arif's branches for this delicacy! Also to be tried out in the restaurant is belutak! Yummy!

“Real Brunei Malay Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

This place serves real Malay food typical of Brunei. Ambuyat is my favourite. It is a goo made of Tapioca flour and eaten with various sambals and curries and rendang. It is handled with the use of bamboo tongs like chopsticks but with one end still attached. Picture disposable chopsticks where you have to snap apart one end. Only this pair of chopsticks are spread slightly apart like tongs. great food.

“Best Ambuyat in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

Aminah Arif Restaurant has many branches located in town thus it is pretty easy to find. But the best branch so far is the one located at Delima area. Ambuyat is the most significant local delicacy thus it is a must try while your stay in Brunei.
