I had pork sate, my wife had the chicken sate. Both excellent. Ate outside, great setting, good service, a really enjoyable experience and it would be difficult to beat their sate,

No question about the food, it was very good; nor about the staff, they were really friendly....but two hours to eat only a main course and dessert it's unacceptable (we were three people); the efficiency is not their cup of tea.
