This is my second visit to Candlenut, this time with friends from out of town and we enjoyed the food very much. We ordered the wagyu beef buah keluak, crispy pork belly, "yeye's curry" and the baked fish served with white rice. Everything was delicious, fresh tasting and done with a slight twist. If you order the baked fish, watch out for the chilli as it is very spicy. We did not have dessert this time but I tried the chendol and buah keluak ice cream before and it's definitely worth a taste for its sheer uniqueness.
As several people have pointed out, the service can be slow and should be improved. However, the staff are genuinely friendly and are helpful when you do get their attention.
Candlenut has a great menu with variety and the food quality is consistently good. If you are looking for a simple place to eat at with great food at good value, this is a place to consider for your next meal out.
