“Artsy fartsy rendezvous, beautiful ambience with nice jazz music”

Tjantek Cafe and Art Bistro
Ranked #15 of 271 Restaurants in Kuantan
Cuisines: International
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 17, 2012

The cafe is situated in the old part of the Kuantan town, in an old building refurbished with nice deco and lots of quirky art pieces. Dimly litted, with jazz music in the background, its a perfect place to hang out with friends to chill. 2 thumbs up for the nice selection of drinks , we like their fruit juices in jumbo size glass, their tjantek fruit punch (which has real mango juice in it) and wild honey with calamansi which looks like a cocktail with brown raw sugar on the rim of the glass. We hope they have more selection of food on their menu though.

Located along Jalan Besar..parking is murder at any time of the day. Smoke from the traffic and the din makes us wonder why this is even called an artist oasis. We ordered Sirloin (medium well which turned out tough like a boot) and Grilled chicken. only black pepper sauce was offered. The Ceasar Salad was drenched with the sauce whilst the 'toasted' bread was soggy. No egg was present. The Pasta with 'chicken' ball was decent.At RM 95 for 3 pax..it was a rip off

This restoran is a bit difficult to find but when you are in the restoran you will feel contented with the art that surround you.The surrounding is very quiet and you can enjoy your food in a relax manner.

This is a diner where you should not rush or be in a hurry while you indulge in the food and ambience ...

Immerse yourself in the surrounding and the soothing music playing in the air coming from cleverly hidden speakers.

Take time to admire the various lighting effects and arrangements of spot lighting that has been cleverly placed

Been here numerous times and my favorite dish to order is still the Pasta Tuna Chilli Padi ... give it a try ... fusion of East and West beautifully done

Run as a family business, this place remains to be among the town's little secret , or perhaps open secret

Cheers

Artsy place, smack in the middle of the town or so called " salted fish" street. Good place to have chill with friends!
