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!

Nice ambiance, nice decor although aging dining area. Food is average; serving authentic Indonesian food. Unfortunately didn't find anything special that stood out. Service is average with some waiters looking very tired.

Big fan of Nasi Ayam Penyet and have always fallen in love with their penyet. Same quality of penyet no matter which branch you go to. Amazing spicy sambal to go with and the chicken is so soft and juicy (never dry). Only recently I tried something new from them, which is the 'Tauhu Jakarta' or was it 'Tauhu Telur'... More

Friendly staff, very traditional Indonesian feel and outstanding food! I love the ayam bakar especially. If you're looking for delicious and authentic Indonesian food in Brunei, this is a must try.

This review is for their branch in Sengkurong. After reading reviews on TripAdvisor, we had to try the ayam penyet here. Unfortunately, we didn't meet the satisfaction of our tastebuds. The chicken was sweet and not crispy. The sambal was not spicy at all. It lacked the umph of the Indonesian food we are accustomed to.

I am a fans of indonesian food..... And this is the only place to go if you are looking for authentic indonesian food. Among all the branches i think the one located in the Gadong is the best. Sometime the service might be bad but most of the time the dining experience is quite good.
