“Indonesian Taste in KK”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Indonesian cuisine amid the bustle of Malay dishes, enough to satisfy the longing for home. Only problem location is hard to find.

“Breezy, nice food, satisfactory portions, hard to find”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

I found this restaurant from Tripadvisor reviews and decided to give it a try.
Like the other reviewers said, the place is a bit hard to find. A tip - it's nearby Maybank in Plaza Alamesra.

When we arrived, the place was breezy and they were playing Indonesian gamelan. It was a very nice scene to an otherwise ordinary restaurant. There is also a raised level where people can eat cross legged, and in the rest of the restaurant just normal table and chairs.
There were interesting items on the menu such as Salmon Penyet and Burung (Quail) Penyet.

We ordered Kambing Penyet, Ayam Penyet, Pecel Lele and Sayur Oseng Kosong (Pakis).
They were all very delicious although I think the Kambing Penyet is a bit too sweet. The pakis was very delicious and the Kuey Tiau portion was humongous. Sth a bit different was the rice had chicken flavour in it. The sambal comes in two choices - Super Spicy or Less Spicy. Both were quite delicious, but you have to pay for additional sambal. They didn't have Gado Gado which left me a bit disappointed. Teh Tarik was delicious.

All in all, it was RM62 for 4 dishes and drinks. I think it's an OK price and would come again. I like the breezy area and the music.

“Great food, confusing place”
Reviewed 5 January 2014 via mobile

It's undeniable that the food is authentic & great but i reckon there's another places which was even better. But the food is definitely nothing to complained about. We saw the place from that JJCM show & decided to try it out. I love the fact that the rice & sambal is freeflow no matter what. But the place is just very confusing. I mean, we got lost for a solid 15min before we can figure out the road at alamesra

“Try out this restaurant!!!”
Reviewed 21 November 2013 via mobile

Wow... I could say they have the nicest ayam penyet here or overall nicest Indonesian food in KK. Ayam Penyet might always charge a high price anywhere but here, u hv the best 'Sambal' perfectly cooked chicken n nice ambience. It's just the location is quite hidden n not even in downtown KK but is located nearby the 1Borneo, currently the biggest shopping mall here in KK. Should have more reviews then more people will notice this restaurant especially tourist.
