To be honest, I'm very spoiled if it comes to Indonesian restaurants. That's because Europe's best are in Holland, and i've eaten there until my belly was about to explode. That's how it's supposed to be in a Indonesian restaurant, when your order the rice table...But in this case I was more then disappointed: service is slow and food is... More

I really would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.. soup swimming in grease..tinned beans in the veg soup and a 50 minutes wait for a banana fritter to be told by a deluded manager what service he was giving by personally flambee ing my banana...the drinks are expensive..3.50 for a small Jupiler which is max. 2.50 everywhere else..The only highlight...

Since it was our first time eating Indonesian food, we opted for a rice table of 4 services to get a good idea of what the Indonesian cuisine was like. When I saw that the plates were relatively small, I thought we might end up hungry but dishes just kept coming and coming and soon that fear faded away. All... More

Not much choice when it comes to Indonesian food in Brussels. Garuda stands out as pretty much the only go-to address. We visited on a Friday evening and found the setting very nice, accompanied by friendly and prompt service. Sadly the food ended up being only average, though I have to give credit to the sate(ay) grilled meats, fish and... More

So we love Indonesian food. We came to the restaurant on a Friday night and we were seated quit quickly, ordered a few courses and our first course came out after 10 min. Quite quick if you ask me for a sit down restaurant. Food was very good, authentic and filing. We left Happy.

We ordered 3x same menu and one main dish -- a fish. Eventually we were waiting an hour for our starters and an extra hour for our main dish (according to the service because of the fish!). Service was not very friendly and food was missing spices/taste. After the dinner, we were stinking as if we were coming back from... More

I booked this restaurant as a birthday surprise for my partner because we were going to Indonesia a few weeks later. This was about the only Indonisian restaurant I could find in Brussels. The weather was cold, so we could not sit on there lovely terrace. But still, the orangery in the back was quite pleasant to sit. Service was... More

"Average" is really the keyword for this restaurant. The food wasn't bad, but not particularly good either, just average. The service wasn't great, but not terrible either, just average. One of the waiters (our waiter unfortunately) doesn't speak any english, nor dutch, nor french, so unless you speak Indonesian, good luck with him. The restaurant isn't really very expensive, but...
