The presentation for his rice satay dish was saddening. They added coarse chunks of cucumber and left the bland chicken sausage uncut, leaving an unappetizing first impression.* Also the prawn satay was just half of one prawn, seems like a rip off to me. In describing the chicken satay, my boyfriend quoted Rupaul saying "the chicken satay should sashay away."
As for the fried beancurd and peanut sauce, they originally gave me some kind of weird sambal sauce. I usually don't have a problem when restaurants make a minor mistake in my order but the sambal-looking sauce didn't taste like sambal--it tasted like barbecue sauce with pepper flakes. Blegh. I asked them to replace the sauce with peanut sauce (as the menu described), which took some time to arrive for some reason (don't think it takes a lot of time to plop some sauce in a bowl, especially when the kitchen is so close). I had to ask for the sauce again and the waitress seemed miffed that I required her services. The tofu was also cut in different-sized chunks, so some pieces were crunchier, while others were more soggy.
Also it smelled funny in there... not quite dry, salted fish--I know that smell, I grew up with it-- but a staler version of it. I don't think we'll be coming back here... :-/
* I just think they should at least cut these since the food utensils are soup spoons and chopsticks. In Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, you'd be given a spoon and fork so it's easier to cut through large chunks of food.
