Ibu really has a knack of bringing the best of traditional Indo fair to the good folk of Darwin. This little unpretentious gem is my all-time favourite for irresistible beef rendang, vegies and bean curd in coconut, chili beans and of course that amazing dry beef or chili eggplant. Too much to choose. The sambal is also totally authentic and... More

So I have heard a lot of good reviews in this takeaway/restaurant so I tried it for myself and I was pretty disappointed coz their food is average. The worst part is their service is terrible. Would not recommend it to people.

A little tucked-away nook. Great value. Thank you! I especially adore the chilli beans & eggplant. Consistently delicious.

Up in Darwin on work and went to Sari Rasa. Good authentic HALAL Indonesian food. The place was absolutely packed when we went for LUNCH. I enjoyed the food and will visit them again.

I love the food at Sari Rasa I used to live in Darwin and this was one of my regular go to places for lunch. I no longer live there but when I visit it is always on my list of food places to return to. Great value, I love everything on the menu, the coconut beans are a winner... More

A regular lunch spot for me, Sari Rasa has the best Indonesian food in Darwin. Don't expect anything flashy, but for $12 for a small or $13.50 for a large, you can't go wrong! Everything I've had has always been delicious but my favourites are chilli eggplant, dried beef and coconut beans.

Ask any local where to get the best Indonesian food in Darwin and they'll say this place. A must try is the chillie beans and dried beef. I also love the chillie fried egg and eggplant. You know what...it's all pretty good. Enjoy

We try to make it to Sari Rasa whenever we pass through Darwin. The cafe is in a small arcade across the road from the RSL (also worth visiting). Mixed plates with rice are $12 and the venue is BYO. Dried beef and chicken curry are particular good. The only downside is that the opening times are completely random, so... More

Agree with all the reviews so far including one that says its just a little cafe in arcade. But I wouldn't be marking it down for that. It is exactly what it is, a cheap and cheerful lunch venue with melt in your mouth beef, chicken and lamb curries and you cannot go past the dried beef with crispy potates
