Kintamani is one of the longest standing Indonesian restaurants in Singapore. The restaurant's wrinkled, dated facade is a testament to its origins back in the 80's. I don't think it's been renovated since the disco era.  The food here is like what you'd get at your nenek's (read: Malay for grandmother) home for Sunday dinners. Nothing too fancy, just good old familiar comforting favourites.

Kintamani offers a buffet spread or ala carte dining. The buffet usually costs $45 per pax but if you have a UOB credit card, the buffet morphs into a much more value-for-money meal at only $30 per person. The buffet isn't very extensive but what they lack in variety, they make up for it in above-average quality. There are about 6 hot food stations, a dessert corner with Malay kuehs and ice-cream, a salad, gado-gado, and soto ayam soup station and a make-your-own-noodle station as well. All relatively decent.

so-so food quality

If it's not for a 1 for 1 promotion, this buffet is not worth it. The varieties are little, and the quality is mediocre. Only the satay is considered nicer. Go if u only mainly enjoy satay. The durian pengat has really changed... Or rather deteriorated in quality. It seems floury and the durian taste is hardly there and the texture is yuck. Restaurant promised complimentary parking but my request was declined later on arrival. After I had explained that I was promised on the phone, then did the staff reluctantly allowed me 2 coupons. Honestly, am ok if no provision, just do not promise if can't deliver. The table arrangement was good though, we had a good time interacting with one another given the space.

Like asking for free satay

The satay was like asking for free. Extremely little when topped up. Had to wait an hour before topup. I dont like buffets that ration till as though I didnt pay for it.

Only the ambience was v good. Food was average but the bbq chicken was quite good. Top up was slow. Noisy crowd.

worst nasi padang ever

the food is bad, selection is miserable, and for what you pay for, DON'T BOTHER really. It's the most expensive, horrible tasting, nasi padang ever. Never in my life have I ever paid so much for so little, so below par in taste. It's a matter of time this restaurant will close.

Disappointing!

We made a reservation for 5 adults and 1 toddler and clearly indicated the need of a high stool. We were greeted by the hostess who led us to a table away from the buffet spread (which was good)and away from all other guests. The restaurant was not even half filled which was suprising to me as i heard many good reviews of the food! Well... There was no high chair at the table we reserved - something I cannot comprehend whenever I make a reservation beforehand. So what's the purpose of making a reservation?

There wasn't much choice of food my 2 year old could eat as most were spicy (of couse!) but it didn't really matter because we had brought some biscuits for him to munch on. The staff were nice enough to offer a plate of tauhu goreng (non spicy) so my son could eat. Appreciated it although the sauce was spicy...........

We were 30mins into our lunch and there came a group of 5-6 employees in uniforms and name tags who sat right next to us. I'd not mentioned earlier, the restaurant had 2 sections and we were seated at another section where we were the only guests until these employees came. I wouldn't have been upset if they just ate and left. They sat down right next to us when there were so many other tables and they spoke loudly about their personal schedules etc almost oblivious to the fact that there were guests (my family) around! It was a total turn-off as employees gathered around the table chit-chatting away when my husband was busy stacking soiled plates at our table! Well... If it was a benefit the management had given their employees to dine at the restaurant, I am all for it. But perhaps staff should observe some form of ettiquete and also not neglect the service.

I'd lost all appetite to eat any other foods after that. In addition, the food was either lukewarm or cold. The crackers were not fresh and crispy.

It was a total disappointment for me and my family and I will never return or recommend this place.
