I've been to this restaurant hundreds times and never been let down. They are always crowded, the service is quick and consistent. The gurame goreng is a must try, but all the other dishes are equally good. If you like curry, try their fish head.

like any dish which is "pangang" or grilled. They grill the seafood of chicken with some sweet dark soya based sauce. The seafood tauhu is delicious. Always enjoyed eating here.

I ate lunch here with my sister, uncle and aunt. And we just loved what we ate there! We ordered their squid, fish and crabs. I totally forgot their specific names in the menu but boy were they so good! I wasn't just used to the spicyness of the food but it added oomph to it. Totally recommended

Went with family for Sunday lunch. Was very busy but service was very efficient. Big restaurant, welcoming and nice atmosphere. Variety on menu. Taste of all the dishes were authentically favoured. Prices were reasonable. For dessert I tasted the best "ice campur” it's an Asian dessert. Highly recommended.

Food - excellent. No substitute for its kepala Ikan curry, tahu kipas nya yg yum yum, gurame goreng 'nangkring' ( but sometimes still smells earth ), all others, pick any, tastes good as well. Prawn, Sayur Asem, Kangkung cah, Kerang, Lumpia ( prefer the tahu kipas ), Etc. Service is relatively not affected, same flat face after they know that... More

One of the best and oldest restaurant in Jakarta. Have been going there since i was young and now a must when I travel back to Jakarta. The fried gurame is heavenly! All the dishes is worth trying and reasonable price. The place is very crowded though but the service is prompt! A must go when in Jakarta!

Located at Jalan Batu Tulis, district Pacenongan in Central Jakarta, this restaurant is really so popular with mostly locals people. Turist alike as well and is jam-packed during most of its business hours and also dinner time. But service considering the Numbers of table available is quite fast, maybe because we are "bule"! Food is really great with a lot... More
