Had dinner on a recent visit and selected the restaurant based on reviews. Terrific decision as the food was outstanding and plentiful and service wonderful including individual visits to tables by owners to engage with those visiting. Our biggest surprise was the entertainment on the night. Around an hour of traditional dance and involvement of the patrons in the activities.... More

Excellent service beautiful good. Perfectly cooked with traditional flaboyrs. The good tasty food to the well priced beverages. The rendang was so tasty and everything we tried was delicious. They accommodated a toddler and were so pleasant and kind. The restaurant manager was very knowledgeable and helped us to get our cab back to the hotel. So friendly

Took a colleague who was visiting from overseas and she really enjoyed the food as well. Restaurant accommodated our request to have the food less spicy to suit her tastebuds. The beef rendang was really yummy, and if i could have had it spicy it would have been even more 'syok' but i will be back for that. Overall, service... More

We were taken by friends and were most impressed. We arrive in middle of a monsoon after a drive through torrential rain The dinner was made a great success by the "cabaret" dancers from all the local cultures (Ensure you book a table near the stage) Excellent value for money and worth seeking out. It is off main drag.
