“And above all, it was for the ambience.....”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Came to this bistro to catch up with friends since it's conveniently located along the same road as my hotel. The bistro was nicely decorated with arts and painting. Feels comfortable, cosy and not crowded at all so it would be a nice alternative to the ever busy cafes at the nearby Teluk Cempedak.
The bistro serves simple food and drinks so come here expecting a full course Western meal. Also worth noting that there isn't many choice for coffee nor any alcoholic drinks at all. Come here if you need a place to chat and catch up with friends after dinner as the bistro stays open till 2am! Above all things, it was mainly the ambience that is noteworthy about the bistro.

“restoran with ambience”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

its a western food restaurant run by a family but the ambience in this restaurant is so soothing.Its a gallery type restaurant with a lot of kniknack and books. It open quite late in the evening but the food is one of the best in kuantan. I love the painting that are hanging on all the walls.

“a place for night life in kuantan”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

the owner of this cafe are welcome especially the chef, their juices are the best in town. refreshing in a very big glass! i always hangout here, as i know this place is the best one in kuantan. the music selections are the best.. the ambience of art is strong, with the presence of painting, classical furniture and dimmed lighting.
i see some architect, artist and interior designer usually hang out here,
the food are good, i like their steak and grilled chicken are presented with blackpepper sauce and potatoes.

“Very cozy”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Tjantek only opens at night. I love their Salted Lemon Honey. It's only uniquely at Tjantek. It's really a cozy place to hangout with your friends. Except got difficult parking, otherwise, can't complain much about it. Especially a town call Kuantan.

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