Ordered the Chicken Sate and Iga Bakar (Slow cooked beef rib). Flavourful and the beef rib was succulent. Honestly was astounded as to the quality of the meal. Would highly recommend to people seeking authentic cuisine.

One of the best restaurant in Cairns, handsdown. Great Indonesian food with reasonable price. My favourite is the Iga Bakar (Grilled Beef Rib). And the staff is always friendly :)

I was craving for hot and spicy Asian delights when I chanced upon Bagus. As its name, Bagus had been a really good experience! Authentic grilled chicken (Ayam Bakar) and almost similar to what I've had back home in Singapore!
