Amazing on all levels
I dined here alone (my partner was unfortunately sick and could not attend) and the maitre d' Wayan had the forethought to seat me in a quiet corner of the dining room so that I am not in between bigger groups or other couples. The complimentary appetiser platter was a nice touch and great introduction to what's about to come. The menu reads like a dream of a carefully curated list of culinary hits from all over Indonesia. Sadly for me, dining myself, I could not order as much as I'd to to sample the menu. Wayan suggested a mixed platter which consisted of a few chef-selected dishes which was an excellent idea. The food was all delicious. The gin-based kemangi cocktail (a kind of indonesian basil) was intoxicatingly fragrant and fresh. Wine mark-up was not ridiculous. A nod to the excellent service....on noting I was sweating from all the chilly heat from the meal, Wayan brought me a cold towel and a carafe of herbal iced tea on the house - now that's what I call warm and intuitive service! If this place was in Melbourne, it would be my regular! Please open an off-shoot here and bring Wayan with you.

I wish I could eat here every week! For less than £60 my husband and I had an amazing lunch which included 2 starters, main courses, 3 glasses of wine and 2 cocktails...plus the complimentary Indonesian tapas to start off with. Being vegetarian I often end up eating the same dishes over and over again when traveling (through lack of choice on the menu), but I love to try new things...this was the perfect place for me! Many of the ingredients I hadn’t heard of before but the waitress indicated which dishes were veggie so I knew any of those would be ok for me. They were in fact amazing! One of the best meals I have ever had. The staff were attentive and helpful and the atmosphere, even though it was relatively quiet at lunchtime, was wonderful. Wish I could give it 6 out of 5!!
