about Dewakan

A combination of the Malay words for “god” and “food”, Dewakan is a modern appreciation of the bounty that this land is blessed with. The restaurant’s dining experience is designed to create meaningful connections with the people and culture represented in every ingredient. The team at Dewakan continually explores new ways to do this and you are invited to partake in their journey.
