The food is good with excellent flavours but it could benefit from better presentation. The ambiance is reasonable given that this country bans provision of alcoholic drinks and the selection on fruit juices and similar concoctions is quite extensive.. The only thing within their control that I found disappointing was the number of small bones remaining in my chicken curry. Prices are reasonable.

Good simple food at this restaurant. It has a branch in Seria too, with the same menu. Menu is extensive, covering just about any local dish you'd want. Great for lunch.

We stopped by for a breakfast dosa and were served a prompt tasty banquet at a very low price for authentic Indian food. Amazing freshly made murtabak, roti and dosa breads with vegetable and chicken currys, along with local favourite tea tarek and kopi coffee! Open early (we went at 7.30 am), we will definitely go again for breakfast!

Nice little mini cafe, just behind the main street. It is small, and so is the menu. On more than one occasion we were told that the dish selected was not available, which is disappointing. Coffee is great, staff friendly.Sorry to hear that, we do try our best to ensure that all things are made available. Menu is small but we prioritise freshness all of our ingredients used. We will investigate this matter further. Thank you for your feedback.

Excapade Sushi

No website, but google it, there are lots of reviews about it on the internet. Trip advisor already have the capital branch captured, but not the Kuala Belait branch.

As a local myself, it’s so disappointing to observe that the local trainee staff at Excapade KB are terrible at service, even after months of working here. They gather in a group and make a lot of noise, as if customers can’t hear everything. Customers have a hard time getting their attention! When serving, they are not attentive and don’t engage well.

We had a great business dinner here. Good service and ambiance. Excellent selection of thai food on the menu. Fish cakes are wonderful. The thai soup with coconut milk, spices and chicken was yummy yummy. Portions are generous. Vegetables are very fresh and only shortly cooked so they still have a bite. I am looking forward to the next visit!!

Good value, extensive menu, good portions, fresh food and good value. Nothing special about the venue (take the stairs up from the street), but it's clean with a family feel and the staff are helpful and attentive and you'll be in an out in thirty minutes if you desire.It's not an Halal restaurant and serves plenty of pork dishes, so bear that in mind if you're bringing or inviting guests. Great for family dining and/or larger groups as the tables sit 6 people comfortably.Careful visiting here if you've food allergies, since many of the dishes serve deep fried (breaded) meat/seafood and/or are served with a soy sauce, so tricky finding dishes for gluten intolerance and there are nuts in the kitchen.If you park outside you're supposed to pay, but if you don't then you might get a ticket which you need to pay at the booth. The cost of the ticket probably warrants not buying a ticket and taking the chance, but if you have a ticket waiting on the window then definitely pay it!I'll certainly be back!

Went there quite often. Food is freshly cooked and taste better than most restaurant and the cost is very reasonable . It can be very hot . Mango chicken or mango fish and buttered prawn are highly recommended

We went here with a group on a work related meal, basically sharing starters and main dishes. An excellent authentic choice in both of those, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Some Indian members of the group indicated this to be very good and authentic. I had a pleasant meal in a nice environment with plenty of choice to chose a nice dish.

Kaizen Sushi

Reviewed By wickedpaul

This restaurant serves good quality sushi; for me personally this is above Excapade's level in terms of ambience. However, the only reason why I didn't give full five stars was because I would prefer if they have more choices in the Don/Bento section.To those wondering which sushi restaurant is the best, it really depends on what you like. In terms of taste, more or less the sushi restaurants in Brunei are quite similar (Excapade, Sushi Tei, Kaizen). For sushi sets, Sushi Tei is a good choice; for affordability, Excapade; and for ambience, Kaizen. Nonetheless, they are all good!
