Dance, Dancing Fish

Dancing Fish is actually a restaurant located at Bangsar Shopping Mall. It is a Indonesian-Malay style restaurant, and they claim that you can have all their flavoural food without MSG on their name card. At first I doubted that, but soon after that I truly believe that their statement is pretty much true.

The ambience @ Dancing Fish was considered nice. Quiet, relaxing, and you can really chill out and enjoy your meal there. Service was great as well, passionate waiters speaking fluent english, polite and they would serve you with their best. Overall, they definitely spot on for ambience and service.

Talking about the food, on the other hand, it was quite okay. Mind the word OKAY. The food there wasn't  bad, but it wasn't that good either, just barely on par. But still, it's a good place to hang out with your friends and have some good food together.

First thing first, the appetizer.

It was fried chips and chilli dip sauce. The appetizer was okay, it had that unique flavour and I can't really tell you how it tastes like, but it tastes good with the chilli sauce. The appetizer will be served after seating.

So, we ordered a platter which it had fried dumplings, chicken satay, grilled squid ( cumi-cumi bakar ) and some appetizer with salad.

The cumi-cumi bakar was very, very tasty. The texture, the flasvour, everything was absolutely spot on, and it tasted even better with chilli sauce. Cumi-cumi bakar can also be ordered separately.

Then the chicken satay was good too. It wasn't too dry, the flovour was there, and the meat was soft and tender.
Chips and salad, not so good though. The salad was a disaster. It didn't taste good, which disappointed us. :(
And about the fried dumplings, I didn't have to chance to taste them because it was already finish when I wanted to try them. *sobsob*

The main dish was this - The Dancing Fish, named after the restaurant itself.

It was fairly good, and they claimed that you can eat the bones along with the meat as well. I tried that, but eating that way didn't really make me feel good about it. Dancing Fish is priced differently according to the sauce, but it is still affordable.

The rest of the dishes was fairly good - Tahu Telur, Rendang Ayam, Itik Goreng, etc.
And about the price, it's quite affordable.

All in all, good environment, good foor and fair price. It's definitely worth going for anothet try. :)
