Review: Courtyard, Brunei

I am finally on my last episode of The K2. I find the story-line surprisingly better than Healer despite that Sister claiming that the latter was nicer. Now that I am almost finishing with The K2, perhaps I should resume watching The Bride of Habaek?

Anyways, let’s not dwell with that in the mean time and get on moving with what I shall be blogging for today. CY, Jennifer and I tried out Courtyard this evening for dinner. Courtyard has only been around for about two weeks. I got to know about Courtyard through San Diann when he shared the pictures of the restaurant looks from the outside on our Whatsapp group chat.

The entrance to the restaurant is the wooden door on the right side in the picture. Majority patrons might mistook the windows by the side as the entrance into the restaurant. I could be one of them if it wasn’t for the bunch of patrons entering the restaurant before me.

There weren’t much seating available in the restaurant. A group of patrons took up one whole big table as they were celebrating graduation of one of the patrons if I am not wrong. They were so detail oriented to the extent that they even had printed name cards on top of each and every plates so that they will know where to sit.

Without further ado, let’s get started …

Fresh Lemon & Mint | B$7

fresh lemon juice, fresh mint, sugar syrup

Hummus & Chicken | B$11

The main purpose of our visit to Courtyard is to try their Hummus. Hummus is a puree of boiled chickpeas, tahini, lemon and garlic. I had never tasted any Hummus before but I liked what I had just now. The texture was smooth and I liked the lemony taste in it.

Chicken Alfredo | B$14

I did not try much of this pasta dish but they went slightly overboard with the salt on the chicken. They were salty. However, the amount of the cream sauce was just perfect for the pasta.

Döner & Rice | B$14

Courtyard’s chicken slices, butter rice, hummus, mix salad, Tzatziki sauce

Their Döner sets can be served with either flour tortillas wrap or pita pockets and with a choice of side salad or fries. I don’t remember that we got to choose between side salad or fries. But thankfully, we were being served with side salad. Hummus alone can be filling as it is made of pureed chickpeas.

The chicken slices were not as salty as the ones from Chicken Alfredo. The sauces were served separately in two small bowls. According to the waitress, their spicy sauce can be very spicy. She rated the spiciness level as 9 on the scale of 10 but Jennifer and I agreed it was only a 6.

Verdict: Customer service was good in my opinion. The staffs were all smiles and cheery. I am not much of a fan for their pasta. I liked the Hummus despite this was my first time trying it. I do not mind returning but it will be for their wraps next time.
