We were staying down the road and were curious to check the top choice of lonely planet, we ordered some food and noticed spellingmistakes in the asian menu,which is common in asia but didnt expect this from a new place run by UK people who are interested in local culture, so they should know how to spell basic indonesian food like nasi goreng !!!
The food was mainly european, a pity, so we went for some European food. All was obviously frozen, the chickennuggets were only 2 mini pieces, same price as you would pay in Europe. I ordered fish and chips and it was the worse fish and chips I had. Our glasses arrived with ants, we all felt like heavy stomack till the next day. I duno how the author of Lonely planet got to this conclusion as it is quoted that they do alot to promote the Sidemen valley but did not notice anything only the lookout of ricepaddies of a poor farmer who has now all tourist staring at him while he is at work. Glad that i am not staying there as the ricepaddies overlooking the resort is noisy as the farmer is using bottles as scarecrow and started to annoy me as we came here for a peaceful lunch. Rather stay in a place where my money goes to local people instead of some expats and there are much better choices for food in Sidemen !
