Worth the try.Delicious choice of meals.Kept going many times with friends even though it was pricey but would be better if shared with friends the meal. The fried chicken and honey lemon chicken is the best among all the dishes.

Always superb value for money.Greatb selection of cuisines. Only minor downside is that it's a shame it's not open in the evening!

i have eaten here many times and it is honestly one of the best places i have ever eaten. it is is really cheap for what you get. This restraint is the definition of soul food and i would recommend getting the lemon chicken it great.

I just had a smallish quick take away for a late lunch, ant the queue was out the door ! A great selection of about 12 dishes each day. I had Beef Rendang (I think !) and chicken jerk. Both were delicious, very tasty good sized portions. The choice of dishes varies daily & you can sit inside if there... More

This is such a hidden gem! A friend told me about it and I was stunned at how good the food is! Wish I lived closer as I'd get takeaways from here all the time!

Called in on Saturday after reading so many good review the food is reasonably priced and you do get good portions unfortunately there is very little flavour in the food and we found it a bit disapointing this was our first and will probably by our last visit to Borneo Bistro
