The Indonesian foods were good and portions were generous. Hit the spot on a rainy day in Cairns. It was a short walk from our hotel but we just ate there once for dinner on our first day in Cairns.

Called in to Bagus for lunch on a weekday after seeing some great reviews on TripAdvisor. The cafe is unpretentious with simple outdoor seating on the footpath. Had nasi goreng with chicken satay skewers. Quite a treat and prepared fairly promptly. Staff were great, prices are OK. Definitely worth a visit if you like indo food.

I don't know what to say except we stumbled upon this gem because we were staying next door. Had Nasi Goreng in Kuta last year, Bagus is better
