Cheating on change return
I love this place , one if my favorite spot in Oberoi area. However recently me and my friends are disappointed with staff attitude and poor service( waiting for ages for waiter to take the order , being told to come and pay at the cashier, not cleaning the table). I hope the owner will take action as I always recommend this place to my friends and tourist who live in villas close by. Sorry for complaining but the last thing with cheating on returning less change(happened in the morning on 29th of May) and when I said it was wrong I was given that attitude again and so didnt want to stay and facing the cashier any other second I left. Felt sad leaving such nice place and wont come back again.

Hidden gem off the main drag
I visited the Straw Hut with a few friends on our recent trip. Due to our Villa location this ended up being our closest bar / restaurant and we were quite keen to set up a base of operations. The venue itself is pleasant and in a quiet back road away from the hustle and bustle. The straw hut itself is beautifully setup and looks amazing. It’s nice and clean with ample seating on the two times we were there, both times the patronage was very quiet. The outdoor area is nice with a pool and an outside bar area, but felt incomplete as there was a strange paddock area leading towards the female toilets right out the back. The staff were friendly however lacked the service skills that other bars in the area had and struggled with some of our drink orders. They unfortunately wouldn’t entertain anything that wasn’t specifically on the drinks menu even tough all the ingredients were available via other cocktails. The cocktails that we did order were packed with sugar and herbs and fell a little flat. Food was not too bad, quite basic but tasty whilst not blowing your socks off. The Indonesian options seemed to be the pick of the bunch with our group. The Pizzas and Burgers were tasty a tasty option but ranked mid range in the area. Juices were quite tasty though! We didn’t come in for the breakfasts but they have these options as well. Toilets were a little scummy (men’s) and could have used a good scrubbing. Couldn’t tell you what the females were like. It’s definitely a great place for a quiet beer, simple drink and pool session. I dare say it would be a great pool / party venue if packed and tunes flying. Would love to see a bit more life in the back area to really finish the venue off. Definitely worth a stop in to get away from it all and could be one of those little gems with a bit of refinement and staff experience.
