Recommended in the Lonely Planet guide to Brunei, we travelled a fair distance to eat supper here. It was well worth it: the food was delicious, and the servings copious. Pleasant wait staff.A movie screen even showed a James Bond movie. I heard that kissing was censored in Brunei, but this movie showed kissing. Maybe bootlegged? What marred the evening... More

Enjoyed the hospitality, of the promoters and the staff. Excellent service and great food. Fresh sea food, stored next to the restoran. Only one word of caution. Kindly reserve, so that you are not disappointed

Avoid this place unless you do not mind waiting for two hours to get your full meal served and are not really hungry. We went with two hungry children for dinner. One drink came, we waited then one main course came, we waited again..... We asked for the other 3 drinks...they came eventually. More than half an hour later, the... More

We went there for a birthday dinner one evening and while the atmosphere was not bad, the overall experience was borderline intolerable if you're not a patient person. Here's the cons of what we experienced: 1) Staff had COMPLETELY no idea what they were doing. Asking for things, they were pretty much out of it. Extremely poor training or none... More

Had lunch with family and friends, after arriving from London two hours earlier. Menu looks promising with lots of choice. And a few unavailable ones. Beef rendang's good. Wasn't impressed with the others dishes at all.

With only two tables, you would expect fast service but the food came very slow. Very disappointing as we like the food there but when one dish comes late it spoils your appetite.

On corporate dining, the service was fast and efficient. We took 3-tables and the food were served speedily. Full flavoured. The egg and satay were distinctly Indonesian. Recommended.
