A place where we can see the Brunei's arts and handicrafts of the master craftsmen and women weavers. It is also a place where trainings and courses are provided for people to pursue the learning of the local arts and handicrafts.

The restaurant is spacious and bright. The surroundings are well decorated with the handicrafts and flowers that it is all well presented under the great and bright lighting. With the decorations and also the great view of the water village that is just by the side of the building, it brings an amazing ambiance for people to dine in.

Tarindak d'Seni also has open kitchen that we can see the chef in action preparing and grilling the foods in action. I can say it is one restaurant that not only suitable for the tourists or the foreigners but also to the locals too. It is a place where we can get to understand more about Brunei in its arts, cultures, traditions and also the FOODS!

And about the foods, Tarindak d'Seni specialize in serving Malay and Local's delicacies. It is all GREAT and MARVELOUS.
