Eaten here several times with my wife and friends. This meal, our last visit was our most disappointing, purely based upon the attitude of the waitresses and the general lack of service. It's fair to say service has slowly but surely got a lot worse since previous visits. This is not a language issue as we both speak Spanish as do the waitresses. We have never seen such a bunch of unhappy people serving customers? If the restaurant were busy or we were problematic customers you could possibly understand....

On a positive note, this is probably one of the better restaurants for South East Asian cuisine in Barcelona, and possibly the only Indonesian restaurant we can think of? Food is good quality, well presented, and generally authentic considering availability of ingredients in Spain. On this occasion the satay were served a little cold, but that can be forgiven. Best dishes in our opinion are the soups and the sambal style shrimps. The selection of curries are also good but not so original.

Don't be put off thinking the restaurant is small and there are no tables free, note the majority of tables are upstairs (from the street you can only see a few tables downstairs). The restaurant is very centrally located and is minutes off the main shopping street (Portal de l'Àngel) just off Plaza Catalunya.

After doing some sightseeing in the nearby tourist attraction we decide to go for a late lunch around 4pm. We found this restaurant. We check out the menu at the outside entrance & decided to give it a try. The moment we stepped into this restaurant we were chased out by the waitress! Didnt give us any explanation or whatsoever. Its not even closing time. We are totally puzzled with the kind of bizzare treatment. Mind you, there are other customer waiting for their food or finished eating their food. I rather recommend to the nearest restaurant 2blocks down with nice food and warmth customer service.
