“Good value - relaced atmosphere”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Good food and atmosphere. The restaurant was somewhat overbooked sow e had to wait a while for service. However, apology was given and a free drink which was a nice touch. Style is informal, café style and prices match. Overall very satisfied.

We've been extremely busy lately and while I am serving customers and trying to do lots of things at once I also take phone calls for enquiries/bookings. And occasionally I take a booking and forget to write it down and oops, I have a problem... Generally it works out okay and I am quite happy to shout a free drink when this happens. Thanks for the understanding.
We're happy to read that you were satisfied with your dining experience.

Reviewed March 24, 2014

Atmosphere was authentic, owner was an excellent host with a sense of humor to top it off. Food was delicious and was great to have the opportunity to try so many different Indonesian flavors. Highly recommend a visit.

“The Rijsttafel is a feast!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

The owner Kees is a lovely host with a great sense of humour. We went for their famous Rijsttafel and it didn't disappoint. It was a real foodie feast where every dish was even better than the previous one!

“Excellent unexpected experience”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Felt a little traitorous opting for an Indonesian meal whilst in the Hawkes Bay, but we thoroughly enjoyed dinner here. Highly recommend the 'Rijsttafel' as a good way to try numerous Indonesian flavours. Staff were terrific and complimented the overall experience. No regrets at all.
