Authentic Indonesian restaurant with live music!!!

Family meal out on a wet Saturday night. Four of us each ordered a meal which we then shared. Waiter was pleasant and helpful - food was cooked fast and served quickly. Presentation was excellent and the food was tasty. Music was a bit loud but the songs were well known and the voice was good... read more

Well I don't like writing negative review and the people who run this restaurant were so nice but here goes. It was a special night for my husband and I and we've been to Bali several time so I hunted on Trip Advisor for an Indonesian restaurant with fantastic reviews and Makanan came up trumps.I was expecting a simple café...

My husband had been keen to try this restaurant after reading many positive views. Unfortunately our experience was not as wonderful as we'd hoped. Whilst the yellow fish curry was a standout, the other dishes were surprisingly flavourless and not overly fresh. Even the laksa was quite bland, despite the addition of various condiments. Over the course of the meal,... More

Craving Indonesian food a few weeks ago. The item I was after not on the menu and I asked if they ever made it. The owner whipped some up for me on the spot! Delicious! Will return. Also good choices for vegan in the family.

I was craving for Indonesian food and decided to go here to try their $10 lunch special. My Taiwanese and Japanese friends want to join me as well so I took them there. We ordered fried chicken and I almost worried that they can't handle the spice, but apparently there's nothing to worry about, the dish came with chili on... More

Having lived in, and travelled extensively throughout, Indonesia I have developed a real taste for Indonesian food. It's a real treat to find a place with all my favourites - rendang, bakso, cap cai... Even their tea is teh sorso, and Indonesian brand so it tastes just like I'm having a meal in my local warung. On too of the... More
