D'Cost Seafood Restaurant

A few weeks ago, my work place celebrated Easter and invited all the staff to have lunch at D'Cost Seafood Restaurant. It's my first time to eat in this restaurant.

I've heard a lot about D'Cost Seafood restaurant. One of the reason is that the food isn't expensive at all compared to other seafood restaurants. So far, they have opened more than 15 restaurants. Not only in Jakarta but also in the other big cities in Indonesia.

With the orange color dominated the restaurant, it gives a warm ambiance. It accommodated more than 300 seats. The service is actually quite good; waiters are nice and friendly. But as for the food, too bad, there's nothing to shout about. I feel that most of the food tasted too hot and spicy or just purely blunt. It's so mediocre but then, I guess we also can not expect too much with their range of price.

  5. Oh my, that's one big container of white rice! the choices look delicious. some of them reminds me of my stint in Indonesia. like tempe, sayur asem and the gurame. i must go get my fix of nasi padang soon!

  6. hairyberry: Too bad that the taste isn't as good as it looks *sigh* Yuuummm... nasi padang!!! :)

  7. WOW, these menus' are quite a bargain. Of course, we shouldn't expect much. But, I know this seafood place, hawker style in PIK Fresh Market, cheap, but good taste. Gotta give it a try =)
