“Troops”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

Excellent customer service - been here 3 days and back each time because of the lovely waiters .. Amir and Arya especially and not to mention the two other lovely boys Diah and Jitno .. Looked after us like cup favourites .. Only thing I didn't like was the cats all over beds , sun beds etc .. Get the cats out of restaurant and would highly recommend .. Great place to lay , relax and enjoy !

“Unfresh Food, Worst Service on Gili T”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

We ordered quite some seafood at the front, including a huge plate of shrimps. When the shrimps arrived, they were very undercooked and tasted "fishy" (for lack of a better word). We showed it to the waiter who took a look and said that he'll check with the kitchen. After 5 minutes, we saw him just sitting by the restaurant entrance. We went there and asked him if he checked with the kitchen, and he replied, "they checking, tell you later". After another 10 minutes, still nobody bothered to come and explain what's with the shrimps. I decided to check with another waiter, who also took a look, said that he'll check with the kitchen, and just went on to lure other customers into the restaurant.

Fed up with their service, we took two of the shrimps and went to the entrance of the restaurant, showing the shrimps to who seemed like the duty manager. The duty manager probably got embarrased by us, grabbed the shrimps from our hands, tossed them across the alley to their kitchen, and yelled us "I asked them to check ok?" After yelling at us for a good 30 seconds, a white guy who claimed to be the GM came out and finally calmed his employee.

I lived in Indonesia for 6 years and this is by far the worst service I got in a restaurant. Also worth noting is that they charge 3% for using credit card.

“Raising the bar on Gili T”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

I live on the island and chose this particular spot to celebrate my birthday. The location is gorgeous of a daytime and evening, and the staff where extremely helpful and friendly. Each time we have eaten there, we have had nothing but good quality food and service. Despite some of the bad reviews on here, no body is perfect, but these guys are definitely improving in all areas!! The bagels are delicious, as well as the bruchetta, marinara and pesto pasta. If we needed anything changed or were unhappy, they would gladly change it. Keep up the good work Egoiste Staff!!! By the way, you absolutely made my birthday when you all came and sang happy birthday to me, it was the highlight of the day! Thank you!!

“Horrid”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

The food panini and fries was delivered stone cold. Service took nearly 1 hour and a half even though there were only four people there. The staff were extremely rude and the manager arrogant. Served us completely liquid melted ice cream and said we had to pay for it..... When we complained (politely) the server walked away from us mid conversation. The manager was aggressive and rude. Avoid like the plague.
