Worst service ever

We booked the table at 7 pm and arrived on time. We have been asked to wait. After 45 minutes of waiting, we still have not had the table. There are many empty table but the manager did not manage to clear the table so many people just waiting at the front to see the empty table. Very poor... read more

Willing to eat Indonesian and convinced by the location and the positive comments, my BF and I went there for dinner on the 20th of Feb 2015. What a good experience! The decor is welcoming and very relaxing with the 2 aquariums and the wooden furniture. We've been given a table for 4 in a quiet corner: plenty of space... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem in Sydney! We found it accidentally on our search for dinner. The restaurant itself located on level 1, you need to pay attention to the front signage while walking on Dixon street as it can be missed easily. Food was delicious especially the Indonesian fried rice, reminds me of my Bali trip so much.... More

Mostly full of batter and crumbs and over done. Chicken was dry and the squid was coated with thick batter and turned out crispy. The satay was chunky, dry and dull, again... More

Mid-priced restaurant, delicious fare. A bit dirty, run down & chaotic with an authentic Javanese feel.

This awesome restaurant has been our favourite "special occasion" dining choice for years! It looks nice and stylish- it has a nice ambience about it. The Manager is a very friendly and welcoming guy and his staff are great too. When we really want to spoil ourselves, we order crab. You have to call a couple of days before to... More

First time having dinner in this restaurant. The atmosphere is very good and comfortable, the food arrived quite fast and it is very delicious. My wife love the chicken very much. The service was good especially Mr. Andy who served our food. He is very friendly and always smiling. I will come back again to this restaurant.
