The restaurant offers scenic views, situated as it is in a park by the sea. During my visit,  the restaurant was crowded,  though i must say they have a pretty decent system in place to usher in diners. Surprisingly the queue moved fast and before long we were ushered to a seat by the window. Order taking was quick and food was served in double quick time. The food was only OK in my opinion although I must admit that the Vegetables in garlic sauce were good to eat and cooked well too. I must certainly give credit to the staff and service crew who were quick and willing to serve. Overall it was a Fast into the Restaurant and Fast out of the restaurant as well.  Pricing seemed really reasonable. Menu copyrights Rasa Istimewa

I would say that the restaurant was quite nice, there were a lot of choice of foods, desserts as well as drinks. I've heard from my friends that their chocolate ice cream was delicious so went to have a treat. It tastes fabulous, it's a recommend from me for people who have sweet tooth. Their preparing of food speed is also very fast. But if you would like to visit this restaurant, do be alarmed that you might have to wait a short while at the queue. But overall is a very great restaurant a must-go if you ever went to waterfront.

They gave us the wrong fish but they remedied it immediately after we raised it up. The red Tom yum was a little too sweet for my liking but the clear Tom yum soup is great! The small version of the Tom yum is large enough don’t need to order the large version. The satay was really great. Hotpot beef too hard for my liking. Btw view here was amazing 🤩

Came on a weekday evening, able to get a table with little fuss. Service is good. Service staff are attentive and with good attitude too. Please is generally clean plus not stuffy. Food wise is kinda hit and miss. We ordered Fried Rice with tom yum chilli, sambal stingray, vegetables fried with garlic and seafood hot plate toufu with ice cream waffle as desert. The Fried Rice with Tom Yum Chill tastes ok, the taste is kinda special though. Vegetable is well cooked and the garlic sauce is tasty. But the vegetables have leaves that are clearly eaten by bugs or caterpillars and i felt those should be removed. Hot Plate Toufu is pretty bad. No doubt the portion is pretty big for small, but it wasn't sizzling when it came as expected from hot plate dishes, the sauce is too blend and watery. BBQ stingray with sambal is the best dish of the night. portion is good for small size. Just enough for 2 pax. tastes good too. Waffle with ice cream is soso. At $4 don't expect it to be as good as those one will find in those ice cream shops. Price wise it's acceptable for the quantity though the quality could be improved. One last thing to note is that there is no toilet at the restaurant, so please go to the toilet located before the jetty before going to the restaurant. There's parking there also as it's located in a park.

Queue for cook food may take slightly longer for dinner. Food was tasty. And unique. Portion was good for the pricing. After dinner, could walk around the jetty and park to aid in digestion.

Whenever I come to the waterfront park for a stroll, I will always come to this place for a meal or drink or dessert. It is value for money at such an environment. Enjoy 💐

Reasonable food price. The taste was so much better than what we expected. Definitely highly recommended for those who wanna chill there at night and have some supper. They have a HUGE variety of food and desserts. They open until 10.30pm, if not mistaken.

Came on a Saturday evening about 615pm..Waited for a while as we did not make any reservation..Service was excellent and promt, but food were average.. BBQ stingray was a let down as it looked like it was just heated up and covered with sambal sauce. Satay sauce were too diluted with no much peanuts. Sambal Kang Kong and Baby squids were good. If you wanted to see sunset while waiting for food, it worth the time. If not, I will not set foot again.

Nice location, big menu that suits local taste. Price is reasonable. I had the pancake with ice cream and longan Chin Chow drink. Just a good pick-me-up. Saw many other patrons enjoying their local ice desserts and food. Staff were friendly and prompt.

The uniqueness of this restaurant is its location- situated far out on a jetty, overlooking the causeway and the Johor coast. The food is affordable, and portion aren't too huge, so the practice of most diners are to order a wide variety of dishes. This makes for a satisfying dining experience. The taste of the food are quite similar to the seafood restaurants in Johor too.

It has been a while since I'm here. Their food still taste good! Great service and their serving time for food is fast! 👍 It was a heavy pour today yet they still got crowd coming in. Do check this place out if you have not done so. It is also nice to take a stroll after a meal. 😃 (If u love something sweet go for their chendol+durian, personally I find it way too sweet for my liking. 🤭 Avoid late afternoon n evening if you dun like crowds. I remembered their western food also nice.)

Homely and rustic restaurant interestingly located next to the jetty overlooking the causeway and Johor. Many yummy dishes to choose from their menu and you can keep going there to try something different 👍 Chicken satay is well seasoned and tasty and their peanut sauce is nice and thick with peanut bits 😋. Overall a unique, idyllic restaurant to frequent with it's wide, yummy and affordable selection of food! 👍😋

Very interesting location on the woodlands jetty. It's a nice location. U can see woodland causeway from this location. U can also see the upcoming mrt from sg to jb. Very cool place to have dinner. It's a halal restaurant. We had sting Ray and lots of satay. The satay and the ketupat is really yummy. We had to order 2 rounds becuz it wasn't enough! Recommended for a dinner for those who want to take a view of JB and nice satay.

Food was amazing, we had steamed fish, fried baby squid, kailan, omelette, seafood fried rice and satay. Babat satay was not too bad but the beef and lamb was a bit tough. When we told the staff, they were kind enough to replace with new ones. Waiting time was okay. All came about the same time. My only issue is the restaurant looks quite old, giving a little bit of JB vibe. Best to bring an umbrella for the walk to the restaurant. It could be too sunny or might rain. No shelter! Spent about $178 for 4 pax.

Ordered about 10 dishes. Outstanding dish - sambal stingray and sambal Soto: spicy rich sambal, really good, must try. Fried baby squid, sweet and sour chicken, kang kong, minced meat tofu, satay are average. Cereal prawns really bad - prawns not fresh and small. Service is suboptimal and one particular staff pretty unfriendly. Ambience is good for the jetty and sea view otherwise it’s crowded and table pack closely

This cozy and charming restaurant by the jetty is one of my family's favourite haunts, offering a lovely view of the causeway and Johor. Their menu is full of tempting options, perfect for exploring something new with each visit. We tried a variety of dishes including mutton, beef, beef tripe, and chicken satays, along with fried sambal hor fun, claypot seafood crispy noodles, chicken and seafood fried rice, BBQ sambal stingray, and prawn omelette. The satays were well-seasoned and taste great with the peanut sauce, which was flavourful with peanut bits. It's a quaint spot with affordable and delicious food, ideal for a laid-back dining experience.
