I ordered chicken kari and I really happy! They were served my dinner really well. And the cafe on the river side. So you will have great view while eating or only chill with someone. They have beer also.

After a hot day of walking, we stopped by this river side cafe for refresher. V gd view, delicious fries and real orange juice, lemonade (not from cordial/concentrated). Chendol is well balanced in taste.
