Sari Ratu Restaurant: Nasi Padang fit for a Queen

My first experience with Nasi Padang was in the 70s at the Rendezvous Restaurant. For a long time, my impression of Nasi Padang was limited to dining experiences at a few different places where I later realized were not representative of authentic Nasi Padang as compared to what it is like in Padang, Sumatra. I noticed the version in Singapore too, in general, tends to lean towards a stronger and fiery flavor. Many times the line between Nasi Padang and Nasi Melayu is blurred. This remains one of my favourite cuisines and I am always on a look out for new Nasi Padang eateries.

Sharing our dining experiences

When we planned a visit to British Museum on our recent trip to London, knowing fully well that a full day is a must for any museum visit, I planned our lunch to be on same venue. It was a delight to find the Great Court restaurant serving full course and not just a simple canteen/café.

Made the online reservation as not knowing whether it would be full for lunch, turned out, it was not a full house; yet numbers of patrons occupied half part of the restaurant.

Malaysian food adventures (and mishaps)

I’m kinda hooked on Nasi Padang hence during the weekend, we decided to explore Desa Pandan. The place is a hub for Nasi Padang restaurants as in one square of shophouses, there are three different outlets at each row facing each other. When you drive in from McDonald’s, the first one on your left is Sari Bunda, go straight and turn right and you will see Sari Ratu. Facing Sari Ratu at shophouses across is Restoran Sederhana. Although some of you recommended us Sari Bunda, we decided to try out Sari Ratu since it was the one that was thoroughly packed that day with Indonesians.

Sari Ratu Indonesian Cuisine at Subang Parade

Indonesian food, or specifically Padang food, is noted for its liberal use of chilli and coconut milk, as well as very humble ingredients; which is why you need to be prepared to be a little startled at the prices of a meal at Restoran Sari Ratu which claims to offer ‘Indonesian food and authentic nasi Padang.’ Granted, it is a mall-located restaurant (albeit in an older, more suburban mall), and you dine in air-conditioned comfort, but I would not fault diners for shying away at paying RM111 for a meal for three.

Sari Ratu Singapore – TripAdvisor

Came here during lunch. The place is obviously doing well, bustling with people. Many were Indonesian so it should be authentic. The place is clean and bright so that is nice. Food is good. In particular I liked the fish curry. A little bit sour taste. So many different types of curry to choose from!
