The restaurant has an inner garden with a pond. For those who love spicy food, this place is a heaven on earth. The chef has no inhibition in adding chilies and other spices into the food. Yet, the food is delicious. For those who can't handle any chilli, there are some milder alternatives.

Upon entering the restaurant, you are immediately shown a large buffet of food items. Maybe Indonesian speakers have some other experience. An English-speaking man helped identify the dishes (ones that weren't outrageously spicy) and we just sort of pointed and picked a bunch of dishes without having any idea about serving portions, etc. meals come with white or brown rice....
