“Beef tenderloin with Sauce Vigneon, avocado goat cheese salad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Went to Koi Mahakan and ordered avacado salad with goat cheese as starter and beef tenderloin as main. For the beef, you can choose between mash poatatoes, cooked potatoes and fries (chose fries) and you can choose between 4 sauces (Black Pepper, Vigneon, Bernaise and Blue Cheese) Ordered Blue Cheese, but it was gone out of stock so I asked what Vigneon is. The guy said it's a white wine sauce with sliced onion inside, so I chose this one. The dish is also served with a salad. Drinks: Frozen Strawberry Margarita, later an orange juice. The salad came. The avovado was at its right point of ripeness, nicely mixed with a tasty vinegrette and topped with the goat cheese and arranged with green salad leaves. It was served with toasted white bread, the bread was flavoured with some olive oil. All perfect taste and nicely arrranged. Beef: Doneness medium to well done. Was cut into 4 medallions and came nicely grilled as ordered. Fries: Extraordinarily tasty! Sauce: Superb taste and goes very well both with the beef and the fries. It's this sauce that makes the whole dish a special thing and it's an artisan masterpiece. Frozen Strawberry Margarita: Still OK with nice dry taste, it would had been better with real strawberry though. This one as far as I can tell/guess had no or almost no strawberry inside and seemed to be made more from a strawberry sirup. Both dishes were arranged nicely and of very good taste. Staff was friendly and relaxed but not unattentive. Overall damage 450.000 Rp. Noise: Some club music (whatsoever - didn't tell me much) + the loud goofs at the neighbor table with their american accent and their huuaaaaaahaaaaaahaaaaahaaaahaaaa all evening long couldn't besmirch this extraordinary dinner.

“100%enjoyed dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Food was really good, staff and ambience was excellent and portions were quite big, that's something that I like. I only missed a bit more of Indonesian food in the menu. Great diner and company!

“Best of European and Asian home cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

You dine in a relaxing and inspiring atmosphere. Very friendly and professional staff. The food is of high quality for both, Asian and the genuine European menu. We love the steak and eggs and the eggs Benedict on the sunday brunch menu. Also the duck confit is perfectly crispy, yet juicy and the foie gras is out of this world. All ingredients are fresh and we never had a single bad experience over the last four years that we came here. Prices are reasonable and parking is plenty right in front of the entrance.
