“Always Good and Reliable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

A friend visited me and wanted to have dinner. He is not up to experiments, so I suggested the Chandi as I have eaten there often and was never disappointed.

The only drawback of the Chandi is, that they don't offer valet parking. And parking in that street can be challenging. Maybe the management will think about hiring a couple of valet drivers...

We arrived at about 21:00h; the restaurant was full, but we got a nice table near the al fresco area in the back.

The staff is very friendly, and knowledgeable.

We had the starter platter for two, which is a very good selection of various starters and, as we were hungry the Bebek Betutu Salad as second starter.

For mains my friend had the tenderloin steak on a hot stone and I had the rib-eye.

Both starters and mains were cooked close to perfection.

Will I go again? Without a doubt.

“Average restaurant, expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Food wasn't great, but was nicely presented. The food prices were not justified. Nice ambience. Good service from friendly staff, even on a busy night.

“GREAT STREET APPEAL”

I was so disappointed with the food here - unfortunately. It was all so bland. I wish that was not the case - but it is the truth for me.
