Went to this restaurant today for an early dinner. Most of the dishes I had never heard of but the satay looked good and I saw they had Guinness on draft. Settled for a selection - all was very tasty. If your ordering satay remember...to mention you only want meat if that’s the case otherwise it will come with liver skewers and intestinal satay. Waiter was friendly and helpful. Ambiance is authentic and looks very clean. Enjoyed my visit. Reasonably priced. Open windowed with ceiling fan style cooling.More

We use to go there often when it was empty and we enjoyed the food and service was good. This was before lock down. We were regulars. We brought friends. Then lockdown happen. Post lockdown we went there again and this time we made reservations...and arrived exactly on time but had to wait before we got attention and them was told we were late and they released the table to other walkin guests. I saw the walkin guest all settled down and seated at our reserve table with drinks. This clearly means the table was released even before the time of our booking . Waiter was rude and just told us too bad you are late and we released . We said we are not . He walked away. Then we ask for the manager who knows us and she said we are late. This whole thing took about 8 mins and by the time she spoke to us yes it was 8 mins after our reservation. What happen to holding the table for 15 mins or if you are not wanting to hold the table then tell us at point of making the reservation. None was done and on top of it we weren’t late . They were crowded that nite and just decided to sell the table. Super arrogant and we won’t go back ever again and have shared our stories to many. How a restaurant can be so arrogant during such times and to their regulars goes beyond me to be honest! We did not stay to argue as it was clearly a waste of our time and energy.More

My wife and I have patronised the restaurant from day one and always enjoyed our meals. Before the CB period the restaurant was rarely busy and always had space available. However during the surge of demand during CB the restaurant pick up rapidly , therefore...we needed to make reservation and that's fine and understandable. However a few days ago we did make a reservation on a Friday at 7.45 pm for 2 pax and arrived at the restaurant at 7.46 pm just to find out then we are late and our table has been released and given to other waiting customers. Very disappointing and very unprofessional from the restaurant manager, including then this practises was not mentioned at any point. We wish you all the best Kuta 88 because we will NEVER come back !More

Chill vibe at the new Indo Chinese restaurant with a strong selection in the menu that I will go back for to try more items! Had a good lunch of the nasi campur special and mie goreng with a serving of satay. The innards (i...tried liver and intestine) satay really does have abit of the gizzard aftertaste so i wouldn’t recommend it unless you are a fan. Had the avocado smoothie with chocolate sauce and condensed milk which was half finished by my toddler as it was so yummy. Less sweetened can be requested.More

I feel so bad for not being to write a review sooner. I have been coming here for almost a year now and not once I was disappointed with my dining experience so let me breakdown for you. Food: love the chicken rice set !!!...It is so worth it. This is what I usually eat when I'm there. Cocktail drinks are nice, the alcohol content is not alot but the quality isn't bad either for the price, nice to simmer down with it on a hot day! Ambiance: I think hands down, this is the best feature they have ( well, food first!) They have a very nice cozy chinese pin-up style . Love the radiant bright-coloured high chairs near the bar. It is so nice to see the bartender at work making cendol (haha) and sometimes of course the real deal: alcohol/ cocktails. Service: This completed the trifecta or the holy trinity. I must say this takes the cake. The loveliest staff I have ever met. This is why I'm there almost 2x a month. The warm smiles ( sincere ones too!) The attentiveness, the humility and most of all the sense of urgency when you order. I really hope they will stay and linger for many years to come. I will be genuinely sad if ever they close. To the staff, you guys are the best :) keep it up and see you this weekend! :)More

Came to this restaurant twice in November. Very friendly service without being fussed over. Food is very good with a big enough menu for a local area restaurant. Sure we will come again.

This is not my first time visiting this restaurant. For the first time, I thought the food was decent but a tad pricey. You really gotta a meat-eater to appreciate this Cafe. In my recent quest to have good one-Bowl dishes, I thought I would...start supporting my neighbourhood restaurants such as this one for lunch. Am generally not a dinner person. So I walked in on a quiet Monday and ordered their signature Nasi Campur. The service was mediocre. The staff were not enthusiastic except for clearing away my plate when I have barely cleared half. The quality of food was so mediocre that I am better off with my char-siew siew yoke rice at any coffee shop. Honestly, i would not pay to come here again. I would like this shop to survive given the high turnover of restaurants in the vicinity. The decor of the restaurant is gorgeous and reflects the culture of the vicinity but that’s about it !More

The pork satay was reasonably priced and was really tasty and tender and quite large too. The roast pork items were decent but there are better ones out there. The kuatiow seafood was really flavouful with a nice wok hey to it. The nanking chicken...was so-so. The cap cai was good value with generous ingredients. The only gripe was that the music was a bit loud so that made talking difficult even when it was half empty. Other than that, quite a good place, and I will be back.More
