The venue may resemble a food court but it's far from that. Two types of dining space are available - either by chair or raised floor. Last but not least, the simple but beautifully grilled ikan bakar that comes together with their homemade spicy sambal belacan.

    Idrus Ikan Bakar is held in a humble set-up, with minimal tables and decor. As usual, guests will be encouraged to choose the type of fish most desirable (commonly stingray).
