Been to this place with the Mrs some weeks back, It was close to 11 when we reached there and lucky for us they let us in as they started taking last orders around that time.
As usual the whole candle light dinner thing brings out the mushy side and we kept on talking without thinking about ordering. The waiters were patient enough and after we realized, we were just scrambling as to what to order.
My wife being a staunch veggie, I had to budge and order a full veg fare (god). Anyways, it did not turn out to be a dampener. I took suggestions from a guy who was sort of a manager or something I guess. Pretty decent guy, he suggested us what would be good. So here it goes
Grilled Veggies Javanese (starters)
Veg Kari Kapitan (curry )
malaysian herb rice
(and no we are not into the hard stuff so you wouldn't find any in this review, but I heard that they server good wine.)
Yes we had to order this in one go, as I said earlier it was the last order. Anyways we went back talking to where we had left it. I'm not one of those people who want the order to come in minutes, 'coz I feel that if it comes within minutes then it is not fresh.
The chef should take his time in preparing the food, then and only then the food would turn out to be good. And I was not disappointed, our starters took some time but boy oh boy when they were in we just LOVED it, it was served with peanut butter.
The roti and the veg kari kapitan followed next, I dont need to explain about roti, but the kari kapitan was reddish, maroonish in color (can't tell the exact color in a candle light can we), with lots of fresh veggies and cashews and it was supposedly done in coconut curry. Bottom line it was well worth the money and the taste.
Same goes on with the malaysian herb rice, the menu stated
it was done in fresh shredded mint, basil, corriander, celery , excotic herbs tossed steam rice. And it was every bit of it.
Being a slow eater it went long, and by time we looked around everyone had left and we were the only ones remaining. Remember the nice manager guy who helped us in ordering, he saw us trying to rush into the food. He told us not to worry and take our own sweet time to finish the food , which we did.
It was a extremely good experience foodwise, ambiance wise, the friendly manager guy who let us enjoy every bit of the time and the food. I would say its well worth it.
Advise to anyone visiting, kindly book your seats in advance as the place maxes out over the weekend. And you would have to wait for anything from 30-60 min. We had to leave empty handed on a couple of occasions prior to this just because of the waiting period.
