“Not your typical indonesian style meal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2011

This resturant does have very common indo food like rendang or mee goreng but it seems like the flavours are more suitable for aussie's flavour more than the indonesian flavour. I wouldnt go back there again for dinner as i feel that the portion is quite small. We ordered mee goreng, satay, rendang, spicy fish...they all taste rather sweet more than spicy maybe because they wanted to cater for westerners. Did ask for a small serve of sambal which it taste fantastic and must try cos its the spiciest item out of so many items we ordered! haah! Overall experience is so-so.

The ikan bakar is addictive! and the rendang was just absolutely yum! drooling*** can't wait to dine there again (not sure why they charge so much for such a small portion of rice though...$2.50 for plain rice and $3.50 for yellow rice) It's BYO, I wonder if that is applicable to rice :P
