Wonderful restaurant on all dimensions: delicious food, striking decor, good service, and not a killer price either. Why the "careful" in the title? MyFilipina wife chomped down on one of the large chillis and was in agony: to shy to spit it out and too scared to swallow it. There was no sugar at the table so she suffered until... More

Indonesian friends suggested we meet at Lara Djonggrang. It was a good suggestion. The décor features a mixture of Chinese and Javanese carvings and other art work. The place was fairly full on a Saturday night, but not noisy. We ate inside; the seem to be other venues beyond the door of the main dining room. Our friends had made... More

I'm a regular patron of this dining venue. This restaurant successfully elevates the countryside Indonesian food into an Imperial Indonesian cuisine. A splendid place to entertain your friends or guests (especially the expatriate ones); vibrant yet elegant interior full with priceless antiques. The staff: friendly; the service: excellent, the food: always good. Don't miss to take a snapshot of the... More

We had a very hard time finding the place. None of the taxi drivers knew the name of the restaurant. In the end we told the driver to go to Hotel Marco Polo and found our way to the restaurant from there. (About 200m from Marco Polo) The restaurant looks very authentic. The staff were very friendly and food was... More
