If you are wondering where to have timorese food, and happen to be a vegetarian, try Golden Star's "raba-raba" which is a vegetable salad made of cassava leaves, banana inflorescence, papaya flowers. A different salad. The steam fish with sesame oil is delicious!

Short but varied menu of mostly Asian dishes. I had the Timorese fish. Pretty good but rather unusual with lots of chilli, onion and lemon or something like that. Standard Dili prices or slightly more ($10 for the fish plus $1 for rice but other dishes were a lot cheaper), decent service (good by Dili standards) and a classic Chinese decor - red furniture with white coverings and gold sashes. I'll be back to try the rest of the menu.

Great food! An inventive mix of local East Timorese, Thai and Chinese cuisines.

Fernando Lay's Golden Star Restaurant in Rua Liberdade de Imprensa has the best food in Dili and he is a well knwn TV chef.
