  • 這個水上城堡其實不大, 看起來就像是有好幾個游泳池的豪宅, 如果有空再過來就好,旅遊時間有限的話還是拿去逛更值得的景點吧   more »

  • The restaurant's decor was unique and as intimate as could be! Tons of knick knacks. The menu was plain, juices and either a rice or noodle dish. I got mie goreng with chicken and a pineapple juice. The juice was great, but the meal was underwhelming and the veggies were not cooked through. Presentation was wonderful though!
  • Lovely staff, moved from his own seat to give us a fan! Mixed Lassi and Mango pancakes were wonderful and very reasonably priced.
  • Nice nasi campur(mixed rice), and sultan special tea, worth to visit for a small bite. 好吃的nasi campur-杂菜饭, 和special sultan tea,这里很值得尝试。
  • Good fresh fruit and delicious juices. The very warm and pleasant place. A good address!

  • Quiet atmosphere with ethnic background art, quite convenient to the memory of the atmosphere of "Tempo DoeLoe" at Cafe Mas Company.
