This by far is one of the best musicals I've ever attended!!! Fela Kuti's music is inspirational...and it makes you want to get out and do something!!! say something!!! fight back against whatever crappy government/poilticians are ruling wherever you live!...This musical takes you through some important stages in his life and along the way..... you are asked to get up out of your seats..... interact with everyone around you.....as you are in his club you know... "The Shrine"... There are even bartenders walking around that will make you mixed drinks :)...... This show is full of energy!!! and I love African dancing...being that I've been taking classes for over 15 years....so its great to attend a show..where the women are dancing full out!!! no holding back.... everything shaking...the way it supposed to be!!...Nothing is watered down in this show!.... The decoration of the theatre is colourful and alive!.... Everyone that I talked to after said they were thoroughly moved....and they can't wait to come back... The music is Amazing!!!! I used to see Anitabales at SOB"s all the time...back in the day...so its great to see them in this production!! I can't wait to go and see Fela!! ....again...and again.... its one of those shows that you can't just see once..... Go!! you will not be disappointed!!!!

Does this restaurant even need any more reviews? Everyone says it's awesome. It *is* awesome. Most of the menu rotates. But there's beef rendang every day. Beef rendang is beef that is cooked very, very slowly in coconut milk and in its own rendered fat until the meat melts in your mouth and the remaining liquid is a thick, rich sauce. My other favorites are the lamb stew, which falls off the bone, and the rich, savory tempeh. If you like satay, get five skewers of beef or chicken satay, plus rice, for five bucks. There are a lot of interesting-looking fried items on sale, but the only one I ever tried I didn't care for. I thought it was greasy and had been sitting around too long. That's the one and only thing I've ever eaten at Hardena that I didn't like. Everything else has been a winner. Despite the scary descriptions, it is a fine place to take kids. The kids won't mind the décor. And nobody will care if they spill rice on the plastic-covered tables. Addendum 2010-05-24: Hardena no longer looks like an abandoned mini-mart. The outside has pretty new paint. They have a sign that does not involve movable black plastic letters and does not advertise 7-Up. The interior has been rearranged to open up more space, and decorated. There are new tiles in the bathroom. And they still have the best food ever!
