I had a company gathering lunch in this Indonesian halal restaurant.  Glad that they served buffet lunch which we can have so many unlimited serving of their signature dishes without having a big holes to our pockets.

For the price of $30 per adult, is very reasonable and value for money.  Dishes of food are served to our table by their friendly and helpful service staff.  Restaurant is very spacious and cooling, with really nice and bright layout here.

Love their tapioca leave cooked with coconut milk which the tapioca is really soft and easy to eat.  The sambal sotong rings are also very tasty, with spicy sambal chilli to cook with these really fresh and chewy sotong rings.   Besides, the curry vegetable is also delicious.  Curry gravy is thick and creamy with lots of fresh crunchy vegetables in it.

I had lunch here when it wasn't really a lunch period so the restaurant was quite empty. There was only 2 other tables occupied throughout the entire time i was there. The exterior looked pretty grand for a place in orchard central, the interior was however, very simple and neat. Just chairs and tables around in an orderly fashion. A little disappointing as I was expecting it to have a more Indonesia decor feel. Upon entering the restaurant, the food can be seen presented like the "cai fan" stor

I had lunch here when it wasn't really a lunch period so the restaurant was quite empty. There was only 2 other tables occupied throughout the entire time i was there.

The exterior looked pretty grand for a place in orchard central, the interior was however, very simple and neat. Just chairs and tables around in an orderly fashion. A little disappointing as I was expecting it to have a more Indonesia decor feel.

Upon entering the restaurant, the food can be seen presented like the "cai fan" store (economical rice store), with the dishes laid out and one can just point and order whatever you want. We got seated quickly and went off to order the food, literally just pointing and asking for the food. haha! Hawker concept in restaurant setting!

As it was not the lunch hour, our food was served pretty quickly. Also, the dishes weren't cold (unlike some cai fan stores, after lunch hour the food starts to turn cold). Anyhow, the staff were also very prompt in service (but maybe because it felt like there were more waiters/waitresses than customers). One of the staff kept pushing us to order the drinks too! (Dont like this ): ), but i guess it may be because she felt that the food may be too spicy for us (told her when ordering that i cant take extremely spicy food!) So, i guess, customer service? lol.

Onto the food!

We ordered
1. Sambal udang petai (praws and exotic beans in sambal) - $9.50

I like the prawns! It was very crunchy. The sambal was kind of overwhelming for me. Low threshold for spice ): Luckily, the rice they serve was there to buffer the spiciness.

2. Sambal terong (eggplants in sambal & anchovies) - $7

My love for eggplants didn't die here! yay! I like the squishy, melt in mouth kind of eggplants, and it was perfect for me! However, there was no anchovies taste at all, neither were there any bits of anchovies. I suspect they grind the anchovies into powder form and the sambal had overpowered the taste of anchovies.

3. Rendang daging sapi (beef redang (or cattle meat rendang) - $8

This was one of the chef's recommendation and i can see why. The beef was soft and tender enough and the flavour of the rendang came out nicely. One of the best beef rendang i've eaten before!!


4. Kari Kambing (mutton curry) - $9.50

OK dish. I used the curry for the rice! haha! it was delightful (:

The prawns, eggplant and beef rendang were all chef's recommendation and it was not disappointing at all!

The only gripe i have for this place is that it's a little costly! But if you're willing to pay for good food, this is one of the place to try padang cuisine!

The restaurant was airy and spacious, with a good view of Orchard road if you sit near the full length windows. The way of ordering is like regular nasi padang, you point to the dishes you want, and because it's a restaurant, they will serve it to you at your table. We ordered 3 dishes to share and the Ayam Goreng Garuda was the most unique, but very oily.

I guess if you have overseas friends in town and you want to impress them in an air-conditioned environment, this would be an ideal choice. But at the steep prices, I would patronise the stalls run by the mak ciks

The thing I dislike most about waitstaff is when they hang around yoru table like a fly. They look at you, stare at you, hoping you will give them something to get or do. But when you raise your hand to ask for something, they might disappear. It is very annoying having someone watch you as if they're stalking you.There was NO ONE else there but us when we went there at about 7:30pm on a Friday night.

There was NO ONE else there but us when we went there at about 7:30pm on a Friday night. So that was good since we get choice of seating and it's nice to be able to hear ourselves.

The food here is reasonably tasty, except I am not a fan of foods that are cooked hours ago and then left on a bain marie for hours later. But this is what you get here. The food is very rich with extremely liberal use of oils, coconut milk/oil/cream and other greasy stuff. Most of the foods are also fried or deep fried.

The thing I liked most about my dinner was my company. And the fresh young coconut which was just right with abundant flesh and juice.

The rice is brought to your table and heaped upon your plate until you say stop. Prices are rather steep - e.g. 1 boiled egg fried in chilli padi is $1.50++. Nothing special about it. Basically the food is either so rich or so spicy that you will feel full and sick very quickly.

Was attending an event at Orchard Central with my family and as it was getting close to dinner time, we begin to think about where to eat. Looking around the mall at level 1, something caught my eye.

Was attending an event at Orchard Central with my family and as it was getting close to dinner time, we begin to think about where to eat. Looking around the mall at level 1, something caught my eye. It was a big wall advertisement with a fried chicken and also the unit number. With that, we took the lift up to the seven floor and found this restaurant which I later found out that is a franchised of the Tung Lok Group.

All the food are displayed at the glass counter for selection with the price clearly stated. We are able to choose either buffet style at $25+ per person or ala carte and in the end we choose on ala carte.

Gulai Kikil, Ayam Goreng Bambu, Sambal Udang Petai, Sambal Terong, Telor Dadar are the dishes that we ordered. Think it's the first time I've eaten such an authentic and Padang cuisine. All the dishes were mouth watering and makes me wish that I've ordered more.

The crowds began to flow in much later at about 6pm+ so I suggest a prior reservation would be better to avoid disappointment.
