Went in for a drink after a great Indonesian meal. Place is full of large wooden tables and we were lucky to get our own. Good beer and wine pretty acceptable. We were the only foreigners there which is heartening!

We live very close to this café and had never been here for food before, only for drinks (they have a really nice variety of beers). Unfortunately it was a terrible experience and we probably won't be returning considering the other options in the area....More
