I was so excited to try Namaaz after hearing so much about it, and the 17 course meal I had there definitely met all expectations! From delicately arranged appetisers to exploding desserts, every one of the courses is completely different in presentation and taste. Andrian personally served each course to us and explained how to eat the dish, as well as his inspiration behind the flavours and form. In his cooking, Andrian fuses together molecular gastronomy technique with authentic Indonesian food and the result is a brilliant mix of new and familiar flavours. I recommend progressing through the courses slowly and taking time to enjoy the different tastes in each dish. Thank you Andrian and Namaaz for the most exciting meal I've ever had!

The first molecular gastronomy that brings Indonesian Food on the center stage. Here the menu are divided into 'Seasons'. Each season will have its own series of meals. The one I had was 19 course meal over three hours of culinary tour de force. One of the most memorable night I had. The kind that would make you go back and say "remember the time we had that candle that turns out to be grilled banana?"I recommend. Oh and they do reservation only. So make sure you book ahead.

I had my first molecular gastronomy experience at Namaaz Dining and it was so memorable. We can only make online reservations and they serve max 29 guests per day. It is a 17 course meal of Indonesian food with free flow Fiji water. For me it is a one-time thing to try some new dining experience, I really suggest to bring your friends along to make the experience more fun.
