    I booked this a couple of months ago and went there last night with my family to celebrate my wife's bday and our anniversary and I have to say although it was cold and winter the level of service was 10/10 not enough stars to really show how much the wait staff went out of their way to make the night feel special. Highly recommend this place really affordable and the food was great small selection but high quality. This should be how it's done. The food is not overwelled by chilli so you can actually taste the actual spices. Thanks once again will be back again at some point.

    Dishes are good value. There are lots of $5-$6 small dishes to share/taste. Restaurant is also byo. The prawns and petai had hardly any petai. Great to have an indonesian restaurant in that area and bonus that it's such value for money

    Loved it. Their rendang is delicious and gave a good chilli and spice hit. They do sell out the rendang, so go early!

    The Sambal is a rare gem, excellent all round! Super delicious authentic Indo food served tapas style (perfect for sharing) and very attentive service. I love the beef rendang and es cendol.

    The beef short rib is very tasty. Good choice if you want to try the sweet Sambal sauce.
