Impressive laid-back atmosphere with great Indonesian food in traditional presentations. There is quite some variety even though the food is all Indonesian. Would have appreciated an English-speaker to explain/describe menu options so I could make my own choices, instead of solely relying entirely on my hosts' choices.

Delicious food, typical Indonesian menu, especially Javanese. Friendly staffs, unique restaurant. Beware of mosquitos, I was there in evening and yes they enjoyed my blood while in the same time I bite delicious Mbah Jingkrak spicy chicken hahaha. Prices really cheap, of course, if you compare it to Norway. Didn't need long time for food to come, fresh taste and... More

I don't think their menu are special. So I call it my mom's menu serve ala restaurant. Most of their menu are spicy. Becarefull if you are coming alone,don't pick too much menu since the price is quite expensive. They are perfect for sharing.

It was almost 9PM when we visited Mbah Jingkrak. We were advised by our taxi driver to check whether they're running out of stocks or they can still serve us. Us then decided to give a visit, after we had confirmation by phone. Do take note that restaurant closed on 11PM and during busy day, they may running out of... More

i'd come here to experience Javanese hot and food. With dishes like SAMBAL IBLIS which translates to the Devil's chilli paste I bet those who sees the name will immediately know that the dish is pretty darn hot and spicy. Overall i like the food and the ambience, it is quite a cosy place to eat and spend time with... More
