The restaurant mixes its Oriental theme with New Age quirk using a mix of posters, ceramic crockery, blackboard-style scribble walls and the use of pop colours. Music is a big part of the theme too, as they not only play the best of old-school pop, but also have popular names in music printed on the walls, table mats and cushions.

There is an open kitchen area too, where you can spot the chefs using their mad skills. The seating plan could maybe be reworked with more comfortable furniture options as the single chairs and sofas can be a bit comfortable. The ambient sounds of the restaurant {kitchen and exhausts mostly} tend to distract us away from the experience too.

Don’t Chew Want More?

We chose to begin the meal with two starters, the King Prawn Tempura {battered and deep fried prawns with wasabi mayo} and the Crispy Chicken Thai Style {lemongrass, galangal and Thai basil flavoured tossed chicken}. Both were extremely well cooked and were served to us in no time at all.

Next came the impressively-presented assorted sushi platter, which we polished off whilst sipping on two brilliantly mixed drinks, Judo {a mix of gin, fresh watermelon, kaffir lime and lemon} and Karate {vodka and tequila, blended with fresh flavours such as  passion fruit, peach, green apple and lemon}.

For the main course, we tried the savoury and fragrant Indonesian Chicken Curry and the Lamb Rendang, another slow cooked Indonesian preparation. Both dishes were delicious and went well with the steamed jasmine rice we had ordered.

For dessert, we tried Spicy Figs {cooked in red wine} with vanilla ice cream and the Gulab Jamun Cheese Cake, and were not disappointed.

So, We’re Thinking…

This is one Oriental restaurant you must experience {if you haven’t already}. There is little scope for disappointment, and the menu has plenty to try.
