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.

Delicious affordable japanese food that located in kuala belait. Japanese food with local taste. I love it and worth to try. Service is also superb. Always full during lunch and dinner time. Better make a reservation in advance. Best time is from 2 to 5pm, not many customer and you can enjoy your food at it best.

Chapati? Tandori Chicken? Mango Chutney? Palak Paneer? Rogan Josh? Buttered Chicken Masala (Murg Makhni)?
I can go on and on just to mention how "WOW" the food is here when I was in Brunei.
You need to close your eyes once in a while when you chew and let your palate make love with the food here!
Enough talk! Go to Zaika!

I have not had the best experiences here. The coffee takes along time to prepare. A few weeks ago ordered a chicken pie, it was half hot and half cold. The coffee is always super hot. The staff are very nice a polite and friendly. The cheese cakes are awesome! Over all I would not return.

Reviewed By Ahmad S - Kuala Belait, Brunei Darussalam

We often pass by for late lunch during the sunset, it's good place for family lunch, I give the food 7 out of 10, some times I feel the fish and see food not so fresh.
It is petty for such location to see empty most of the time, maybe because it open on,lay for members.
If they open it for public and work on the food aliitle but more it will be one of best in town.
Always thanks for the nice staff

I ate here regularly during my last trip, pepper steak always very good with fresh crunchy veg and great chips. I haven't had any problems at all with service here so don't get what some other reviewers have said about slowness, always been fine for me - great steak for a good price, eat here - deserves higher ratings than it currently has

Yung Peng Gerai No 16 (Mango Chicken)

Reviewed By Jane P

I would recommend this stall to everyone. Their foods taste better than any restaurant I tried. Should try out their Fried wet mee or fried wet kuew tiao. Its the best. Although sometimes when there are alot of customer, you might have to wait longer for your foods but it's all worth it. Its always full house during the weekend. Price is slightly cheaper than restaurant as well.

Sweet Lemongrass

Reviewed By hedleyk - herts,uk

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.

The staff are very friendly and the menu is the standard Italian fair with the Asian choices appearing throughout the meal. The pizza's are not the normal....little dough and lots of tipping it is little dough little tipping. The pasta dishes are okay. Worth a visit but remember you are not on Italy.

This a decent coffee shop that has a fairly good selection of dishes as well as some good cakes. Fairly good atmosphere but the chairs are hard wooden uncomfortable things (not even any cushions). Opens till late. Prices are a bit high.

The Cottage Restaurant

Reviewed By gary547 - Havant, United Kingdom

I visited the Cottage on a recommendation and was not disappointed. The Chinese food was of a great quality as well as quantity ,was well cooked and well presented by very courteous staff. The restaurant itself is a bit tired looking but overall worth a visit. Remember there is no alcohol as this is a Muslim country
