My partner and I arrived on Wednesday 18DEC13 @ 19:00. We believe that restaurants are about the food; all of the eye candy is fine but we are paying for the food. We were seated quickly after walking through the wet and very slippery dining area. Our food findings include The selection of beers did NOT include local Anker, nor Bintang, nor imports; in fact none.)

Our food findings include:
) The selection of beers did NOT include local Anker, nor Bintang, nor imports; in fact none.
) Discussion with waiter at ordering included a detailed request for the large shrimp, spicy, to be cooked NOT TOO LONG, still moist and tender versus DRY.
) The black pepper-encrusted crab arrived covered with luscious sauce meant to be devoured with fingers and hands to extract every tasty morsel. This dish was the highlight of the meal.
) The genger (spell?) vegetable received mixed reviews; I passionately love genger but she, a vegetable critic, found it lacking and probably sat in holding pot far too long.
) The steamed white rice was biasa.
) Oh, yeah!! The awaited shrimp...I personally eat the whole creature including the shell, except a bit of the tail and a bare bit of the head; the first one was surprisingly firm, the rest were even more so. The thumb-sized shrimps bathed in a mild Padang-style sauce were OVER-COOKED !! The next time (if?) I return, I will include with my order that over-cooked shrimp will be returned to the kitchen.
Non-food findings include:
** Both male & female toilets were shockingly FILTHY.
** I was dumped on by a rainwater torrent runoff soaking me on exit from toilet.
** This restaurant with signature dishes of crabs and shrimp, awash with sauces, meant to be consumed with hands but they equip the tables with short stacks of thin double sheet napkins which dissolve upon contact. Real quality napkins, even small washcloths like in Japanese restaurants, would be welcome.
