Had many take-aways from this restaurant when I was a school kid. The steamed white pomfret (ikan bawal stim) is the signature dish. Food here is tasty without overpowering your taste buds, as with other Indonesian food restaurants (especially Padang food).

Visit this place for lunch with couple of friends. Their specialties is the steam fish - small portion enough for 1 person. Other menu are standard so make sure that you eat the steam fish.

Special menu at this place is their Silver Pomfret Steam Cooking. It is steamed with soy sauce ans soy peanuts with chili chops. Taste heavenly in your mouth! I did not give extra ratings since it is the only food that I think worth value in this restaurant. Other options are ok with nothing special.
