“average food, great atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

The decor of the place was really pretty with soft lighting - modern and chic. The menu was in the form of a hanger which i though was cute and unique.

Location of rest was in indonesia grand mall - easy to get to via taxi [thats the only way i know how to get there]

food was so-so, spend around USD25 for main meal - eggs benedict plus two drinks. The eggs benedict serving was huge but other than that nothing to die for. Ive got to say the drinks was a huge disappointment. besides their signature cocktail - tiramisu drink, the earl grey latte was ordinary, iced tea diluted. my friends and I had a total of 8 drinks - all 7 was passable, with the tiramisu just above average.

will i come here again - yes for the atmosphere and decor. but i will only order the tiramisu drink and maybe some starters.

“The way you serve made us disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

I think SoHo is a cozy place to hang out, I love the view and the restaurant design. Amazing!
The price is pretty expensive for what you got. Spaghetti that i ate is delicious but its not chewy (need 1 minute more to boil). The mushroom soup was too many seasoning flavor. For desert i choose some puff pastry, the chocolate is great. I'm a chocolate lover. But their mango tango is fantastic. You should try this one.
I dont like the waiter and waitress attitude, I just finished with my pizza and in a minutes they took the pan already and without any permission. Excuse me, i pay for that service will you at least say something before you took it?

“Sad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

What i like is their nice venue and decoration.. It looked nice and comfortable. But, the food, it was disappointing for me. I ordered thailand noodle (pad thai), with very expensive price and the taste was so terrible. I could only taste sweet from all noodles that i ate.. Too sweet!

I ordered lychee tea too. There is nothing special but the price.. I spent about 150.000 rupiah for a plate of pad thai and a glass of lychee tea.

“Easy Meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

I had lunch here with 2 friends on my business trip. We were shopping in the mall and it was easy to get to (part of the mall)
Food had a good selection, and came out quickly. Was tasty and fresh. Would recommend for a lunch or easy chilled meal.

Try the pizzas, grandmother ice lemon tea. It's the best! The rest is just as good. Favorite place to hangout!
