There is a touch of class and imagination about this restaurant. The staff are very well trained by the owner Ketut who has a very warm and easygoing nature. We were not hassled between courses and we appreciated being asked when we would like our next course.
The dim sum was superb as was the tempura vegetables. We ate the starters after enjoying some amazing cocktails- her majes-tea and golden monkey. I had the “tea” which was served in a cup with smoke coming out of the teapot. But unbeknown to me it was dry ice! The flavour was intriguing and included Dom Benedictine with hickory chips.
My main course was a soft crab shell stir fry with black pepper- fantastic. My wife had the beef Rendang which was a large serving. It was very tasty but was not as tender as it should’ve been after 8 hours slow cooking - a little like pulled pork texture but still tasty.
The wine selection was impressive- we chose a bottle of Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2012. Unfortunately it was corked. But there was no trouble in exchanging it for an Italian Pinot Grigio. And that was very good.
We were full so we thought we would skip dessert. So we ordered another round of cocktails. I had one of the best whisky sours (made with Black Douglas) I have tasted and my wife had to have another golden monkey.
But Ketut had other ideas and he presented us with a free dessert to share. It was a memorable rich chocolate mousse with a crispy crust. We thought the whole dining experience was very good value. If you want to enjoy dining at another level then this is the place!
