“Grilled Dory and Cheese Cake is totally so-so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

I came two times here.

First time, I ate their grilled fish (dory maybe) with vegetables. That's just taste so-so. And I also try my friend Rice. I forgot what it names, but this rice flavor is very rich, but the portion is quite small.

Second Time, I ordered Green Tea Cheese cake. but there is no green tea taste, their cheese is not so tasty either. Actually, its not really like a cheese cake.

“Good food, reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

Visited the Senayan City branch and had the arab mutton briyani rice. Appearance/presentation wasn't there, but the dish was divine, if a little spicy.
