Loud and Smokey - OK food
Went for a nice meal to catch up with friends I hadn’t seen in a few months and had heard amazing things about Ivy. It’s a small venue so when we arrived there was a singer and band playing and it was loud, so loud I couldn’t hear the waiter. I don’t think there’s any non smoking areas either so when I came home I smelt like I’d been clubbing all night. I did notice a lot of other customers loving the local band, just for us it wasn’t conducive to a catch up quiet dinner. Food wise the truffle chips were great and perfectly crispy, the Tempe was a fusion slant on a local delicacy, and the nachos were ok mainly because it was covered in too much mayo. My yoghurt fried chicken was good and it was huge. The corn on cob that accompanied the meal was a little tasteless but the coleslaw was nice with a wee tang that went well with the chicken. I might go back but wouldn’t do so if I wanted a quiet meal with friends that didn’t smoke.

Nice and cozy place to have dinner or just hang-out with friends. In general the food were OK. The Four Cheese Piza is delicous and highly recommended. The indonesian food in general is OK..except the fried noodle which turned to be too hot. We entertained by fantastic duo that made our evening even better.. Would recomend this place if you want to have a relaxing dinner..

My tuna was dry and over cooked. Had a special for "50% off wine bottles" but it turns out only for a selected list, and out of that, there was only one bottle left. I asked for management and they refused. Staff wouldn't talk to the westerners at the table and they had a house band who was so loud we couldn't hear each other at the table. Were double charged for one dish because two staff took the same order and they refused to take it off the bill. I've been before and had OK experiences, but I won't go back.
