Was shown this place by a friend who used to live in Darwin. The food was such a great surprise, especially since they had a good range of vegetarian dishes for me and were very tasty. The price was also quite reasonable, especially given the generous serves. I will be going back again very soon!

Great value, great food. Been going there for years and never been disappointed. The small size means it fills up quickly so get in early or get take away.

Any future trip of ours to Darwin will involve a bee-line back to this gorgeous source of home-style delicious Indonesian - Malaysian food. It is cooked and served by a group of ethnic ladies who may well have had these family recipes handed down to them. I was pondering which dish to select from the buffet in the lunch time... More

Passed through Darwin recently and took the opportunity to have lunch at the sari rasa. Had not been for years but the food was the same - very tasty and very good value. Had the beef rendang and green beans in coconut milk. Both excellent.

Work mates and myself went to this Indonesian eatery for lunch after being recommended by others and we were not disappointed! You choose dishes from the buffet and I chose the Chilli Chicken, Dry Beef and Indo eggs. The beef and chicken was delicious and very authentic. The chicken was moist and tender in a lovely chilli sauce. Value was... More

A bit difficult to find this restaurant, at the end of shop alley connect Cavenagh St and Lichfield St, but the reward is very delicious food, made by Indonesian born cook. The Beef and Egg Plant Chilli (Dendeng Balado and Terong Balado) with Corn Fritter, served with Plain Rice was really delicious. Currently open for Lunch only between 11 am... More

Well, this is a surprise package! Having walked past this place a few times I thought I'd finally try it. And I wasn't dissapointed. A no frills atmosphere, basic deck out, but who cares about the decor because the food was scrumptious. Lovely curry, lovely service, and you could taste the authenticity. Recommend this little place if you love your... More

Good to see Indo homestyle food. Read the reviews from tripadviser and rush the following day to try it myself. Had the chilli eggs, green beans, veggies, dry chilli beef with potato, chilli eggplant, curry chicken.... One of the best homestyle indo meal in Darwin. Recommend with thumbs up:) But sad they don't open for dinners and weekends.
