Amazing Indonesian food in Sydney

This gem of a restaurant just off Darling harbour. The nasi goreng was amazing and the setting was both comfortable and relaxed. Thank you to the attentive staff.

Authentic Indonesian food. Owned by native Indonesian. So the ingredients was originally sent from Indonesia. Nice taste. Feels like home, and they sells some Indonesia product. Nice place.

I usually cringe at the idea of Indonesian fine dining. This is because usually its neither 'authentic' Indonesian nor 'fine'. I must admit that Delima changed my mind on that tonight. The first noticeable thing about this restaurant is the wide selection of Indonesian cuisines they offer. Unlike other Indonesian restaurants that tend to focus on regional Indonesian cuisines such... More

Good food and service. We had a great dinner last night.. ordered the nasi padang set for 2 and what came out was a tray of around 12 different tasting menu with yellow rice. Very impressed with how they served it and the flavor was delicious. Will be back for more and more for sure... loved it.

This is my favourite Indonesian restaurant in Sydney (there are not that many of them). I dine here regularly and prefer the seating next to the windows where once the monorail trundled passed. The main dinning area is a bit to noisy for my taste but the staff are generally very efficient. The Beef Rendang is usually very good unless... More

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 management... 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
