nice food, hot sambal, cheap juice price, but the service was poor. we need to wait for a long time just to have plain rice and another long waiting time for beverage before the food could be served. need to improve the time management.

Wish it was closer to our hotel - food was so good and plentiful, reasonably priced and the restaurant itself was clean! Polite and attentive staff who were happy to explain to us about the different types of sambal on offer

This is by far the most recomended restaurant for many reasons. First, very declious on every menu. Second, service is excellent. Third, the price is incredibly cheap... First we thought the price only apply in Jogja, but finally when we buy from their Jakarta & Bogor branch, the price are just the same...
