This place is beautiful. A secluded, Balinese resort-style environment _ only a few minutes' drive from Mutiara Damansara _ with genuinely friendly staff.

There's only one problem: pesky mosquitoes that come out before dusk.

There's a mishmash of Western and Eastern cuisine available, but we focused on the Indonesian offerings that evening.
The Javanese-style popiah stuffed with veggies, crabmeat and shrimp wasn't spectacular, but it was still very nicely done. Crispy without any excess oil.

Ibu Yati's Gado-gado, featuring blanched veggie salad with peanut sauce. Our favourite of the evening. The peanut sauce was soooooooo deliciously good and complemented the salad so well, we could eat this everyday!

Pak Ajelan's Chicken Soto: chicken consomme with cubes of compressed rice, shredded chicken and potato cutlets. Flavour-packed to the last drop!

Balinese fried rice with grilled seafood skewer. OK but pretty ordinary.

Mixed grill of codfish, mussels and scallops. This was excellent; the cod and scallops in particular were wonderfully fresh and moist.
