We went to Bella Vista Coffee & Juice Bar with high expectations based on what I had read on TripAdvisor's review after all it was ranked no 1 spot. I ordered the much raved about beef rendang pie, expecting a delicious dinner that night. However much to my dismay the beef filling was so hard and chewy and it lacked the taste of the rendang, couldn't taste any rendang spices in it. This made me very disappointed. On top of that the pastry was pretty thick like it was undercooked. I had complained to the waitress and she had conveyed my feedbacks to the chef loudly but no action was taken. I was quite taken aback because usually wouldn't the chef him/herself would have provided an explanation for as to why the dish did not turn out as expected? Or maybe at least recook it again ? On the other hand, the prices were set a tad bit high for the dishes, especially when they were poorly cooked! Worst part of it was that I had suffered indigestion after eating a portion of the pie afterwards. Just to wrap it up, I do not have any interest of returning to the restaurant again. I do hope that maybe the type of attitude and service provided by the chef towards the customers would be taken into consideration. I had never experience anything like this before. Thanks.
