Good find in the city of Darwin

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

It used to be good but not now. It's bland and everything similar taste and it's not a restaurant ok for quick lunch.

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
