I really wanted to like this place with it being fairly local and a small and what seemed like family run restaurant, but am sorry to say I wasn't all that impressed.
The staff members were pleasant, and we were treated very well whilst making our booking over the phone and during our time in the establishment. My partner can only drink water and they were very good about this, coming to the table without being asked and topping his glass up. In other restaurants, you can be made to feel a little awkward asking for water, but here we were made to feel very comfortable
The place itself is very small and you get the feeling you are in someone's front room. Whilst we were there, panpipes were playing on the stereo. The female toilet made a strange noise when I flushed it and I was quite shocked to see that kitchen roll was hanging up on the wall for customers to dry their hands on!
If you want beef, lamb or pork, don't expect to be able to order it here. The available mains were duck, fish and chicken. We ordered a Bunga Raya special rice and a rendang. Both were ok. The starters were the let down. The only options available were deep fried. We ended up ordering a sharing platter, which can only be described as 'beige'. There were about 5 or 6 different fried starters, which all looked the same, just with different shapes. The fillings were almost nonexistent, so couldn't really be tasted.
I'm glad I tried the Bunga Raya so I know what it's like, but won't be going back. Despite the lovely service, I just felt like the food wasn't authentic or healthy enough - sorry.
On the positive side, the bill cam to less than £30 for two of us!
