Restaurant or coworking space?
Waited 5 minutes without anybody noticing me, I asked for the menu and it took the waiter another couple of minutes to find the menus. Too many tables occupied by people working on their macs, not even eating. The place looks nice, but they need to work on the service. They had burguers, but not on the menu, too confusing for me.

Came here last year 3 times in one trip and was absolutely amazing! Came back especially again this trip and it was terrible... last time we came they had great knowledge on Gluten Free and very helpful. This time they served a ‘gluten free’ dish with onion rings - which weren’t gluten free. When we asked about the onion rings she said oh yes they are made with flour .. but only that everything else is ok.. it’s a good job we checked because would have made us very sick. The menu on the website is also different to the menu they give you for dinner time. Not as many options and more expensive. I ordered the beef brisket which was chewy and a big pile of fat - to which the server said that’s how beef brisket is... order potato chips and got given sweet potato chips. The server informed us the place is under new management - I assuming this is the reason that is has gone downhill. I used to rave to people about here but now I definitely won’t be going back. Disappointing because last year it was some of the best food I had eaten definitely gone downhill :(

Let’s start with the positives: - lovely venue - tried to be helpful staff When you’re spending $900k rupiah on dinner in a venue that promotes itself as offering vegan and gluten free options I think it’s reasonable to expect the staff & kitchen to have some awareness of what each is and the difference between the two - unfortunately on the night we visited this wasn’t the case. But uncertainty re gluten free in non English speaking countries I understand and can live with. Very average cooking when you’re spending decent $ I can’t. We shared two main dishes, had two glasses of wine and two sides. We shared roasted squid as an entree which was rubbery and the sweet potato purée tepid and under seasoned. We shared the tenderloin as a main which, unlike the purée was well seasoned and had been well rested, but I came with cabbage that was still raw and topped with a cold & congealed something (cheese sauce?) with the merest amount of truffle. The extra side we ordered of Parmesan mash was also under seasoned and the broccolini was thankfully, not as raw as the cabbage but not a whole lot better. Wanted to love this so much given the reviews we’d read (and booked off) but maybe should have paid attn to the alarm bells when they were promoting their $8.5k rupiah burgers & beers instead. Oh well, can’t win them all!
