We went there for a birthday dinner one evening and while the atmosphere was not bad, the overall experience was borderline intolerable if you're not a patient person.

Had lunch with family and friends, after arriving from London two hours earlier. Menu looks promising with lots of choice. And a few unavailable ones. Beef rendang's good. Wasn't impressed with the others dishes at all.

On corporate dining, the service was fast and efficient. We took 3-tables and the food were served speedily. Full flavoured. The egg and satay were distinctly Indonesian. Recommended.

Went there to celebrate birthday with whole family, disappointing.Booked 3 tables, service slow almost non existent. Food either arrived cold or just warm, and was too salty, oily & sweet. Won't be returning anytime soon.

I love the Ayam Penyet menu here. The hot chili sambal always exploded in my mouth. You should try this menu for a starter. The best Ayam Penyet menu in town so far for me. It won't take a long time for them to serve the foods as well. Great service and keep it up!
