It's painful to write a bad review about a restaurant. After all, a bad review could undo years of hard work that restaurant owners spent to build up their reputation. In the case of Asmara Penchala (formerly Bora Asmara), there's really no reason to hold back on that bad review. They truly deserve it. The new, changed name, should have... More

Brought my mum here for birthday dinner. Heard the food was nice and ambient rustic. There was a Raya celbration of some sort and the staff were short handed. Food only came about 2 hours later and we all finished our 2-3 drinks. The food didnt even make up for the wait. Will not come here again.

Went there to celebrate my birthday. I'm very disappointed with the food. The otak otak and tom yam tastes like curry minus the santan (coconut milk). The drink asmaradana too sweet and tastes like vanilla cream cake. I would say nice place to lepak with friends and family. Food standard worst than street food.

My husband stumbled upon Bora Asmara one day when he lost his way - and was so impressed by how it looked that he made it a point to go back for dinner with us a few days later. It's really a lovely place, the open air dining area is spacious, nicely decorated and almost made us feel like we... More

May be I'm the lucky once or maybe not, but I've been to Bora Asmara quite often and each time I'm there, it 's never disappointed. Recently I brought my family to celebrate my daughter b'day and yes, I must agreed that the oldest waiter (Din) is really a champ. His recommendation on the food (bali dancing fish, otak2, tomyam...
