Excellent Lunch

Came back this year after a number of fantastic lunches late last year. This time came for lunch everyday while we are in Darwin. Recommend the chilli egg, dry beef, chilli curry chicken and sambal.

Had a tasty lunch today - rice, chilli eggplant, beef rendang and spicy egg with sambal. Authentic flavours and well worth the visit - food is more Javanese 'hotness' rather than true Padang (Sumatran) style, but still spicy enough. Staff are pleasant - agree with others who have rated highly. I will be coming back again...

This is my ideal weekday lunch. Rendang, curry beans and eggplant sambal. So delicious and super cheap. Authentic and perfect. Goes great with cold beer!

I can't believe I never knew this place was here! The food is delicious, home-cooked and the setting is nice and simple.

Beef rendang is cooked to perfection. The beef texture was soft but I think it should be spicier. Ordered the fish curry as well and it was really good too. it's a hidden gem in the city and I think if they serve the gado gado on the spot as well, it would be perfect!

As everyone says, it is a hidden gem. Down the back of an arcade on Cavenagh Street - across from the RSL/Vintage Cellars. Food is good and well priced. I had chilli beans with rice today and it was tasty and cost $9. Water is free. The ambience is basic, but it is really a lunch place. All of old... More

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!
