Went to satisfy a spur of the moment ambuyat craving. The set for 2 was more than enough for 3 people or even 4 for a lunch. Price was very good. Their fried fish (came with the set) was fantastic!

Give ambuyat a try. Aminah Arif has a lot of branches around Brunei. You can easily get to try their local delicacies. Have ambuyat with their bambangan / tempoyah condiment. Remember not to chew, just dip and swallow.

Staff was unresponsive and did not bother to listen whilst taking order. I had asked for a smaller dish to divide the sauce but was given another sauce and then charged for it when the bill came. When I asked the cashier why I was charged an extra dish of sauce when all I asked was for a smaller empty... More
