Hotel Istana’s signatures dishes such as Local Style Smoked Catfish in Spicy Coconut Gravy, Butter Prawns, Chicken Kung Pow, Lamb Vindaloo are some of the offerings not to be missed.
Diners can also look forward to the Live Action Stations, where local favourites such as Chay Kuey Teow, Lemang, Sizzling Grill Delights in Portuguese Style, and last but not least, the Carvery Station (Whole Roasted Balinese Marinated Lamb served with a selection of Vegetables with Mustard, Black Pepper, Mushroom and Rosemary Sauce) and the list goes on.
