I loved this restaurant! The owner, Linda, is so wonderful. My friend and I found her after taking her cooking class at her homestay, Anggrek Putih.

These vegetable fritters are amazing, as... More

We ate at this restaurant a couple of times and our teenage boys loved it. One son has a nut allergy but this was never a problem. The owner speaks great English and is very happy to accommodate and cooks all the food herself. Very cheap for both food and drinks. It is tucked away among a few shops on... More
