The food was amazing, and we enjoyed perfect wait service from Robert. Portion sizes is big and price are very reasonable and value for money and what we get. We especially love the gado gado. So uniquely present and authentic

Expensive but beautiful decorated food and drink. Can be a place for special meal. They have enough choices for you to try fusion, local foods and mocktel. Friendly staff, nice music but lound. The internet is lagging. Pretty comfortable seats.
