We came here during Ramadan and it was very busy but they found a table for the 7 of us without a booking. After 8 pm would have been much quieter but we chose an earlier time as we were unsure if the smorgasbord was "empty". The place was buzzing with people, the buffet was plentiful and we took the option of all you can eat meat from skewered table service. There was plenty of lamb, beef, calamari, prawns delivered hot to the table. it just kept coming until we had to say "Stop" . The price was quite reasonable for an "all you can eat" with dessert and "drink" , however this is Brunei, so soft drink only ... The food was not spicy and we ate a skinful. Some people even took home doggy bags. "How does that work?" I wonder. Anyway a full rating in my books but a fair 4 star just shy of the 5 star.

Had lunch on a Wednesday. It was pretty crowded from just before 12pm up to around 1:15pm. Would indicate the food must be good and there were groups of 6 and 8 too, office crowd and even a family group.
We ordered the mid-May promo that came with free flow sparkling blackcurrent juice. 2 orders of Braised Beef Pamiagana and a Baked Salmon.
Actually the food was good except for 1 of the Braised Beef being well cooked and very firm (not braised at all) depsite being served together with the other braised beef that was wonderfully done.
Otherwise, nice setting. The staff had problems coping and responding after 12:30 pm when restaurant was crowded. Glad we reached before 12 pm.

There are restaurants and eating places nearby the hotel. After a hectic day, we wanted a simple and good place, and we happened to choose the right place. The food was good, the atmosphere was good, the service was good. Just as what we wished for.

This is a very nice place if you have a craving for grilled meat or fish but no pork served. They had good lunch and dinner specials when we went and both of us ordered the beef ribs (250g), which came with a small salad and wedge potatoes. They have a wide array of juice drinks, floats, and shakes that are very delicious.

Visited on Saturday evening. Restaurant was busy. Got a table in the back near the play place for kids. Recommend you ask to sit away from there if you aren't bringing kids with you, can be loud. Ordered Nachos as a starter for three of us. Tasted good but very small portion. Would be enough for one person. We ordered the Tex Mex Ribs and a NY Steak. The portions were ok but not a lot of meat on the ribs. Tasted good. Sauces, BBQ/Mushroom were tasty. Potato salad and mashed potato sides were good. Service was good but everyone looked tired. A lot of dishes piled up on the bar table. Over all the food had a lot of flavour but the portions are small for the price.
