Amazing service and delicious food. We just returned from SE Asia and we found the food at Matahari to be very authentic to SE Asia. We will definitely return.

A friend and I go here about once every couple of months. Food is delicious, great vegetarian options. Their Prix fixe menu is very good. Tofu goreng is not on their menu, but when requested, they always make it for us. Always a good meal!

wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
