I love the "Birmano rice"! I can't get out of my mouth. It was really delicious and the pink sangria was excellent too. Good restaurant for go with friends or your couple. The only problem was the service. The waitress had bad actitud and they want to kick us out really quick because we were the last costumes. That was... More

We stopped in for lunch on Sunday as this was in our neighborhood and looked like a nice place. We sat downstairs in the beautiful outdoor patio, we were the only patrons. We ordered chicken spring rolls to share. They were good, but ordinary. Next came the mains - salmon, roasted with very inedible dry rice. It had some slices... More

The place is beautiful and well decorated, the plates look amazing but service is extremely slow. Vegetarian options are limited (only 3-4 in the whole menu) which is a quite surprising given the southeast Asian influence. 2 out of 3 things we ordered where not available, the ingredients are all pretty much the same in most dishes. Food is decent... More

My girlfriend had the Noodles which were clearly real Thai Imported Noodles and perfectly cooked... What I really love aboout this place is the relaxing-positive energy you can feel in... More

Coming to Satay and expecting good Asian food you might be a little disappointed. The food is clearly nothing like Chinese, Thai, Indian or Japanese like the name tends to imply. It's a strange Colombian fusion that is clearly acceptable but falls short of international standards. Certainly nothing spicy on the menu, that is if they have what you order,... More

This is why i love tripadvisor. Finding this place on your own would be quite difficult but what a great discovery! Away from the noise of the lleras park, Satay offers a perfect combination of atmosphere with the most spectacular garden i've ever seen and delicious food made with carefully selected ingredients. Highly devoted service and excellent offer of wines.... More

We went here based in n01 rating on Trip advisor: what a deception! Extremely poor service (forgetting drinks, requests, impolite approach .. Etc). The food is not bad, but more rather pretentious, strange fusion combinations that do not match at all and, similar salad/veggie combinations on totally different plates. Again: understand that soms might Enjoy, however price/quality wise you much... More

I was nicelly surprised by this hidden jewel; Satay offers nice, balanced Indonesian dishes plus innovative use of local fruits (uchuva, tomate de arbol, tamarind,...) to craft beautifully plated foods that while maintaining the original flavors are well adapted to the colombian taste; not too spicy, but fresh and well mixed. This is not your typical fusion food, this is... More
