The dishes were pretty alright, packed with flavour and Malay spices without being too spicy. A great place to introduce newbies to the spicy flavours of Indonesian/Malay cuisine (I hear that visiting diplomats are brought here by government officials for a lunchtime treat). The menu's a little limited but they do fairly authentic fare, with portions that were a tad pricer than the nasi padang eateries along Kandahar Street but still considered cheap.
The Sop Buntut ($6.90) traditional oxtail soup, was one of the better ones I've tried. The strong accent of cinnamon, cloves and pepper flavoured the soup while root vegetables like carrots lent sweetness and the chunks of oxtail were stewed till fork tender.
The Ayam Masak Merah ($6.50) red chicken curry utilised dried red chillis for a subtle smoky heat, and tomato sauce for a tart-ish sweetness in the gravy slathered over a succulent chicken thigh. Flavoursome but not too spicy. Great for people who like strong flavours but can't take the heat.
The Sambal Goreng ($6) with beancurd, tempe and prawns in a pounded chilli and dried shrimp spice paste was also a lightly spiced dish. Prawns were small but fresh and the tempe soy cakes balanced out the chilli pasta with its mild flavours.
