My first visit was invited for a meeting, and once i saw the place i thought "hey it's kind a cool if i take my family to dine here". So one time i take my wife n kids to enjoy the place and the menu for sure. They love the place. The name is Sleeping Forest, but my family prefer to call it Friendly Forest..

Hai, how are you doing? It's been a real long time I haven't written a review. So here we go. I am about to write my experience in a spot which I believe many people in Bandung are quite familiar with. It's sleeping forest. Before I came to this place, all I heard was some people recommended me this place. They said this place had got what it took to be a good resto that would offer me a new experience in enjoying food. In terms of experience, I do agree with those opinions. I was welcome by a tunnel that was full of green plants (though I know It was fake ones). It looks almost like a green garden but I expect it could be more beautiful. The servant guided me well to my table and served me nicely. That was such a good welcome. The place has spiral shape that has a stage with a tree on the center. In some point of times, I heard the sound of birds singing. I was in love with the place. It was so tranquil. Since my tummy was calling, I ordered two menus ; BBQ mixed & Ayam with sambal Dabu (I dont remember the name), plus a unique beverage that has sweet cotton candy with it. The look of the food is as tempting as the place. But I can tell you it does not happen with the taste of the food. Can I be frankly? The taste is out of what I expected since the first time I stepped inside. I thought the taste would be Grande since the price is quite expensive for a place like Bandung. And when you were in my position then you would feel the same. It is just not in line with the ambience. With the price and the ambience of the place, You would expect more from the taste of the food. But after all, it's not too disappointing. Your eyes would be spoiled by the ambience of the place. The place is so dominated by green. The place is so soothing and so calm. It's perhaps because of the effect of the trees inside the resto and the sound of birds. I would recommend this place to those who search a culinary experience with tranquility as the plus value.
