Although described as Indonesian cuisine, I consider it more of an Asian fusion, with some Japanese accents (the sashimi), Thai (Pad Thai and other type curries), Malaysian (Malay curries), Vietnamese etc. So you are really getting a pan-Asian cuisine there, which I find quite generous.
My friends and I tasted a few dishes from the Starter menu and the Raw bar menu, a couple of main courses and quite a few deserts. I found most dishes very fresh, with a lot of lemon and peanut flavours. Most dishes are spicy, so don't get fooled by the indications on the menu, everything should have at least 1 chilli sign next to it.
I loved their tuna tataki and their Nha Trang fish carpaccio. Frankly most starter dishes are healthy and full of flavour, you don't feel guilty by eating a lot. I liked their Babi guling which is very balinese. Most of all though, I thought their deserts were outstanding. I was in awe of their Kampung snicker (parfait with dark chocolatey peanuts) and their Lemongrass panacotta (which tasted like a desert version of a capirinha).
Service was attentive and very pleasant, the restaurant was packed without being too noisy and the decor is quite cozy, with an Asian boudoir theme design, clearly addressing expats.
I loved my experience there, I would definitely go back.

This is a standout restaurant. The service from the on the phone, to walking in, to leaving was exemplary. Staff are attentive, can take a joke and give one, and are observant. This was greatly appreciated.
Food here was exquisite. Every dish was stand out.. we ate too much as we didnt want to stop.
Atmosphere here is multi layered! keep looking to find more detail. Very cool. Loved this place.
