Food is absolutely gorgeous and my favourite is Malaysian Beef, ideal to phone order in and pick up just before closing to have for Dinner parties :)

“Brilliant! ”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

Borneo food is simply wonderful! This was the second time we have had the food from there and it was just as delicious as the first time even though it had travelled from Sunderland to Cheshire! The beef rendang is my absolute favourite I've never tasted anything like it! Can't wait for the next one!

“Wish I went sooner !”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Went for lunch with the wife after meaning to visit for 2 years but never getting round to it or being put off by big queues when on time restriction (sign of how good it is) Lunch was great, tasty & super value !! Theres a pretty vast selection & the staff are happy to talk you through the dishes & even give you a little taste if youre unsure,on first visit it can be a little overwhelming choosing esp when theres a queue building behind you but after speaking with the owner afterwards he assured us not to feel rushed as the wife just played it safe with dishes knew. My beef tangine was excellent,tasty & rich with lots of juicy beef,beef rendang equally delicious. Our food was delicious but dont expect a fine dining experience with waitress service & crystal glasses,people who have left bad reviews because of this are daft ! Excellent bistro/cafe though! Owner & staff were pleasant,helpful & seemed passionate, we will now be one of many regulars
