I was nicelly surprised by this hidden jewel; Satay offers nice, balanced Indonesian dishes plus innovative use of local fruits (uchuva, tomate de arbol, tamarind,...) to craft beautifully plated foods that while maintaining the original flavors are well adapted to the colombian taste; not too spicy, but fresh and well mixed. This is not your typical fusion food, this is really nicelly translated dishes, based in a good selection of fish (incl. tuna, salmon...), beef, pork, poultry plus rices, veggies.
I tried the chicken pistachio, braised breasts on a curry and pistachio sauce; also tasted the tamarind sirloin, superb !, delicious tamarind sauce and nicelly done sirloin accompanied by a rice with black sesame; the vietnamese rice; good sized bowl of veggies, panko encrusted chicken and pork nicelly finished with nuts, soy and sesame. The bacon wontons were delicious, I tasted them with the red curry sauce.
They have an extensive catalog of exotic cocktails that I'd love to try, though I didn't on my most recent visit but they show good knowledge of the basics plus good use of the exotic ingredients to create interesting ones.
Location is A+; a nice garden enclosed by high walls, with a peaceful athmosphere, good modern lounge/alt music. Service is out of the ordinary, nice, helpful servers, you can tell they were properly trained, not too pushy.
Prices were ok, exotic cocktails US$7-8, entrees: $6-$9, main: $12-$15 (Tuna Jeruk)
Remember to request the Naan with curried butter, a small piece but well worth the visit.

Satay offers a unique experience, with its beautiful Thai Garden and delicious food with South-East Asian influences. A real get-away inside the city.
Nice exotic cocktails too.
