Great food & service –
Went for a quick lunch and I was impressed with the quality and sophistication of the food (certainly for the price) as well as the impeccable service! I had the soft shell crab salad and one of the juices – both excellent. The place is also on a mission to recycle, more so than I’ve ever seen anywhere (including US & Europe). Definitely worth a visit!!
Lovely Asian flavours – I visited IBU SUSU recently and enjoyed the atmosphere & the food. The space is a cross between a restaurant & cafe but more upmarket. They have a trendy fit out with natural elements throughout.
The food was excellent: I had the tofu steam buns, the vegetarian summer roll (rice paper roll) and the crispy soft shell crab with papaya salad. All well made & the flavours were great. The only thing I didn’t like was the brown sauce that accompanied the summer roll. It wasn’t for me, however that didn’t matter as they serve it with another dipping sauce.
I also had the Lycheelicious cocktail which was very refreshing.
Price wise, it’s definitely a little more expensive than other establishments around but the quality is worth paying the extra for.
Fantastic cocktails, great atmosphere, great staff – just go! –
What a brilliant place! We called in without a reservation, planning just to have a couple of drinks. The cocktails were inventive and delicious – the Friends with Benefits which is topped with a blow-torched, caramelised passion fruit and served with a shot glass of prosecco was a great mix of texture and flavours – and we loved sitting at the bar and watching the staff in action. We couldn’t initially get a table but had the option of eating at the bar, which other people were doing and which helped create a really convivial buzz in what is a really well-planned space. As one booking didn’t turn up, we were offered a table – but as it’s a small bar/restaurant it’s probably wise to book in advance. The food was excellent: Ketut’s fried chicken was a delicious and substantial starter; the duck red curry and beef redang were richly flavoursome; the pork belly was perfectly done and the side dishes were excellent. Everything was carefully presented and the service was efficient and friendly. Ketut, the man in charge, is an urbane, experienced and very cool host, who makes customers feel valued and clearly sets high standards for his staff.
Hidden Gem –
Went with my kids for H/H by chance and was kindly given a corner table and ended up having dinner, 4 cocktails, 2 beers with my son. Cocktails are good especially the Lycheelicious. Yums! Ordered the veggie rolls which was better then it looked; Ketut chicken was to die for; rendang was good and tender although I think I would have had a bit more spicy; pork belly was super tender and melted in my mouth. Overall, had a great time there. And the team there were amazing- easy going and attentive. Will be back – maybe Tonite!
Delicious meal. Amazing service. –
We chose from the bites menu ordering mandarin duck pancakes, pork belly steamed buns, chicken satay skewers and butter fish sashimi. All were delicious with the steamed buns the stand out dish. For dessert the kaffir lime tartlet with a ‘traditionalist’ cocktail.
The restaurant is lovely and the staff were so friendly. I definitely recommend Ibu Susu.
