Candlenut is quite popular and they are often full. A reservation is recommended. Service was polite and good - the attendants were helpful and we received service with a smile, which is a plus.
The food was quite expensive. $20 for a plate of rendang, which had about 4 medium pieces of beef. However, the meat was tender and melted in my mouth. It wasn't overly spicy either.
I also ordered the satay, which was 4 sticks for about $12. The meat again was flavourful and tender, not tough like the ones you get at Hawker stalls.
However, I did find the food a tad too salty and I couldn't find very many low salt, low spice options for my parents who are in their 60s.
Overall, Candlenut is a nice place to try good quality peranakan food.
