Sanurs Balinese Restaurant

Sanurs is a fairly new restaurant located in Belconnen by the lake where there are lots of other restaurants.

I have been meaning to go to this restaurant for a while. I have heard lots of good things, but was always a bit wary cause lots of places I have been to in Canberra that people have recommended, have not been as good as they make out to be. I needn't have worried here though, as the food was beautiful. Some of the best Indonesian food that I have had.

I made the booking for 7:30, but someone was running late.... so I rang up and changed it to 8pm. When we got there though it was packed and our table wasn't ready, so we went down the road for a drink and when we came back we were good to go.

One thing that I did not like was the tables were very close to each other. Next time I book here I am going to specify a table near the window, cause they had no other tables around them.

We started off with a mixed platter for 2 - $17.90, which was huge, and everything was delicious on it. The satay sauce was very tasty and the spring rolls were some of the best I have tasted.

These were the spring rolls - very good!!

On the left are the beef satay sticks and on the right are battered prawns

Corn Fritters - also very tasty

For mains I knew that I wanted to get beef rendang before we came, as I love the dish and hadn't had it for ages. When it came out I knew it was going to be good and it was delicious. The beef was so tender and it was a very good serving size.

Beef Rendang - $17.90

We also wanted to get a Nasi Goreng of some type (they had 3 options). So we went for the Nasi Goreng Sanur. This included Fried Chicken, more beef satay, fried egg, acar, and tomato and prawn crackers. Those crackers were awesome as well. Such a crunchy texture.

Everything on this plate was delicious. I can't wait to go back and try a lot more of their dishes cause everything was so good. Definitely want to come with more people too, so we can order more things. Two thumbs up from me!

Nasi Goreng Sanur - $17.90 (just realised all our dishes were the same price...)

Yum! I love Balinese food, but haven't found a resto I really like here in Sydney. I'll bookmark this for our next trip to Canberra - thank you! :)
