I was first attracted by the sign saying they served my favourite coffee, Lavazza. That's only the first step of course, the barista has to know what s/he is doing, and here I'm pleased to say they do. The coffee was excellent and it's a great place to relax for a while.
They have a surprisingly large menu, from pastries and donuts to full western and Asian meals. The sandwiches I had were very good.
Address: Jalan Pretty
Directions: Right in the middle of the main street in the town centre.
The 11 Degrees Sport Cafe is in Plaza Sutera Biru hotel and is in two separate parts, one in the hotel's lobby and the other just outside over the river, with terrace and rooftop areas.
They have a large menu including various stir-fry and steamed options, noodles and rice dishes. The dim sum section has a good selection including my favourites, pau and yam cakes.
Dim sum is available from 6am to 10pm. On Sunday mornings local people fill the restaurant, always a good sign of quality in for the dim sum menu.
Staff struggle with English, some more than others, but are always polite, attentive and they do their best.
Favorite Dish: We like fried rice with egg & vegetables, chicken paprik, chicken with special spicy sauce.
For dim sum we have wu kok (yam cakes), char sieu pau (bbq beef in a steamed dumpling), lotus leaf rice (sticky rice, meat & vegetables wrapped in lotus leaf).
Address: In Plaza Sutera Biru hotel
Directions: The hotel is on the river, just off the town centre. Restaurant is on the ground floor.

Conveniently located in the Sentosa Hotel in the town centre and the only Thai restaurant we saw. While the food was tasty, we eat a lot of Thai food and were a little disappointed with the Buccanneer. Taste was OK, the level of heat from the chilli was good but the food was overcooked, making it mushy instead of crispy and fresh tasting.
Having said that, the restaurant was spotlessly clean and the staff were excellent - knowledgeable about the food, helpful, attentive.
Address: Hotel Sentosa, Jalan McKerron
Directions: In the town centre - it's a very small area and you can't miss the hotel.
I love dining at the restaurant due to its great taste offcourse and its a great place to have an al carte dishes, Plain rice with couple of dishes to suit your taste,
The only Beef i have this with this place i would say the location and the seating arrangment is too close for my comfort, But never did i dine there before just order out numerous time to dine at the comfort of my own home,
Got hooked on the place when i dined at the restaurant other branch in kiulap
Favorite Dish: My personal favourite dish would be the pandan chicken although i eaten much better in value of money at chilli's at Lot10 way way back, but nevertheless, My fav dish over there, Its a boneless chicken wrapped in pandan leaves added with herbs and spices.
I would also prefer the Mango Fish and Chicken cashewnut.
Directions: Located at Wisma around pandan area, just ask any local around, pretty sure they will disclose the location.Related to:

I was in anticipation when I ordered Eggs Benedict for breakfast and what arrived was two pieces of toast with over easy eggs. I wanted to speak to the filipino chef and he did admit that he did not know how to make eggs benedict and that most people asked for simpler things than that at breakfast.
This is very typical of guest worker mentality, who has come there to earn money, knowing fully well that they neither can participate in the society, nor contribute to it and their time is limited to two years and with a bit of luck they can get a visa to australia or usa.
It is not sad, just a commentary of the times
Favorite Dish: A bit of Nasi Lemak would have been fine for me. Or a stack of Idlis. but of course, we are too western for that, arent we?
Indian food in Brunei means Tamoul speaking moslems from Tanjore. so forget your naan, tandoori and dig into a dosai and vegetable curries and rice.
Favorite Dish: there are two indian restaurants in the main street. both moslem tamoul. there are other restaurants in the main street including a malay and a chinese one. most restaurants are Halal so Jews can order without fear of being served Pork (not that many jews visit Brunei)
