Gurame Indonesian Restaurant ('Gurame') is located in Changi Coast Park, or to be exact it is located in NSRCC Sea Sport Centre. The location is quite secluded and can be difficult to reach without your own set of wheels. Once you are there, you will be rewarded with the clear view of Changi Beach, if you don't mind the tankers or carriers cruising by or the noise of planes landing and taking off.

Gurame has indoor and outdoor seating. I suggest that you seat indoor in the afternoon and outdoor in the evening. As there was some team building activities on that day, all the indoor seating was taken.

We were in a group of 9 and we were so hungry so we decided to order quite a few dishes. For appetizer, we were served emping (belinjo crackers) with sambal.

First food served was Udang Bakar ($30) or Grilled Prawns are fresh. For $30, you get ten big size prawns, butterfly and grilled with sweet sauce. It was grilled perfectly, in low fire and sealed the juiciness of the prawn inside.

Next come Ayam Bakar ($10), Sop Buntut ($8) and Gulai Kepala Ikan ($30). Ayam Bakar is Grilled Chicken with Special Sauce. The chicken is tender for the thigh and drumstick, however it is dry for the breast meat. It is well seasoned and goes well with the sweet sambal. Sop Buntut or Ox Tail Soup has a clear yet robust broth. The meat is tender and fall of the bone.

Gulai Kepala Ikan is Gurame version of Curry Fish Head. Served on a claypot, the curry has a thick creamy texture, with average spicy level. The curry tasted a bit sweet and tangy, like the normal gulai in Indonesia. Fish head was fresh.

Cumi Goreng Tepung ($18) / fried battered squid rights, we find that you can't go wrong if you order this dish anywhere in Indonesia or Malaysia. They sure know to handle their squid, it was just crispy, tasty and a little springy.

The best dish and the die die must order when you are at Gurame is the Rendang Sapi ($12) or Beef Rendang. It is so tasty, tender and the beef just melts in your mouth. The meat absorbs the gravy and the portion is very good.

In case you are wondering, we did not order the Fried Gurame (Talipa) because the supplier has not show up to deliver the fish when we place our order. So next time then.

The service is friendly but it can be difficult to get their attention at times as they are overwhelm with the other customers in the indoor seating. Overall, the food are delicious and the price of the food is value for money. We look forward to go back to try their fried Gurame. Cheers!!

$6.50 for a lime juice

Way over priced for what you get. Lots of +++ extras they charge for. Nice and friendly service. Good view.

Definitely winning ambiance, if you're not afraid of mosquitoes and ants

Overall, food at Garame Indonesian restaurant was of an acceptable standard. At least, the glutton family truly enjoyed the simple meal and appreciated the tranquility of the ambiance surrounded us. Most importantly, we are blessed for every moment with the company of each other in this peaceful atmosphere, no one missed out and perhaps this was the most wonderful part of the meal.

Awesome Alfresco Dining!

My boyfriend and I came to the restaurant in the evening and the view was spectacular. 

Basically there's alfresco dining by the seaside and indoor dining. We chose the one outdoors, of course.
The weather was very pleasant and from our seats we could see a small glimpse of the Singapore Flyer and Marina Bay Sands (MBS). Once in a while, you can see aeroplanes fly above your head. 

Moving on to the food, it was really a surprise that we liked all the dishes we ordered. We were amazed at the presentation of the Gurame Goreng we ordered. It is the best among all the other Indonesian restaurants I've been to. The meat was very soft and you can tell that the fish is very fresh. This was our favorite dish!

We also loved the Beef Rendang! They served in generous portions and the meat was chunky and tender. Other items we shared were satay, ondeh ondeh and avocado juice. 

I dare say the avocado juice can compete with the famous Avocado Juice from Alexandra Food Centre. Over here at this restaurant, they add gula melaka as well and overall, it was rich and packs a punch!

Well, I would definitely come back again and sample their other dishes.
