View is spendid, overlook the sea and it's nice to have a table near to the sea. Food and pricing 9 pieces of salmon sashimi (300,000 rupiah) - cost almost 3 times that of Singapore's pricing. It came at room temperature, usually should be a little cool to taste fresh. Average taste to me. Sushi Tei's or Ichiban Boshi's sashimi... More

One of the main reasons we keep on going back to go to Nirwana Gardens instead of other resorts in Bintan Island is because of this restaurant. I agree to people that it is a bit expensive for a Japanese restaurant but believe me, they serve the best food in the resort. A must try is Rin's Gindara. The serving... More

The restaurant is located within the Nirwana Resort compound, when we first came in it was empty and seemed a little unattended. We gave it a chance and sat down. We ordered the Wagyu meet, garlic rice, prawn tempura, meatballs, a soup and white wine. Everything was super yummy and up to standard!! Definitely would recommend it. We did not... More

I went with my family the 7th of August. The staff are very friendly and the service is generally good. Unfortunately the place could use some upgrading, there was a smell when we entered that I think it came from the bathroom, the rest is clean but is shows signs of being old. The food is not what you expect... More

You must come here. This place is perfect for family and friends. Or solo if you want to. Especially in a "Sunset" moment. Perfect!

We arrived at the Nirwana Resort Hotel after a day travelling from Australia. The concierge suggested the Rin Japanese restaurant. I'm glad he did! We had a lovely meal. The restaurant was not busy with only two other tables occupied. The air con was much appreciated!

Went for lunch while waiting for our room to be ready. This is a fine dining in a resort meaning quality food, less quantity and very expensive. We ordered Grilled salmon with some sauce which was really yummy, garlic fried rice which was good, chicken meatball soup and red miso soup. Food was good, service attentive. There was some kind...
