This restaurant was a great option for a quick, simple good meal. It is just down the street (2 min walk) from the Pullman where we were staying and just across the street from the east side of the Hilton. Good option if you are not expecting something fancy, it is more of a local easy feeling. We ate in... More

Everytime I have a stay near the riverfront I will definitely drop by Tumis to have the Paprik. In my opinion, it's one of the best in the area.

This restaurant is right opposite hilton.. Waiters were polite and nice, helpful.. Cleanliness is average.. Food was average as well, edible but nothing to shout about. But probably because we only tried 2 dishes.

The food was okay, average, and quite sparse with more about the rice than the chicken. While tasty, but the meal would leave most still feeling hungry. The service was not great and I don't enjoy drinking an iced milo out of plastic mugs, good for small children but not grown ups. The place itself needs a bit of work,... More

Why leave things on the menu that the chef doesn't cook. Not great. Fried fish and rice over priced but edible and gave the satay man a run for his money. That said the drink was as described and presented neatly. Would recommend the corn on the cob outside a few doors up.

Banana cheese fritter was delicious and went back to few times. But I've waited for quite awhile before I get my dessert.

We've been to Tumi's now 5 times and it just keeps getting better. The favors and the freshness of their cuisine are unlike any other restaurant, especially on the Cape. Unique, light, not drenched in sauce, gravy, mayo or fried it's a delightful change. The staff is excellent and more polished than is the norm and the atmosphere is sophisticated... More
