Gudeg is one of the signature dish of Yogyakarta. I've been to several Gudeg restaurant in the city, but I believe Gudeg Yu Djum has one of the best taste. Friendly staff, simple and traditional serving style, and warm Gudeg in your stomach. Just feels right.

There are two types of "Gudeg" wet or dry. Gudeg Yu Djum is cooking style is dry while others like Gudeg buTjitro cooking style is wet. You could choose to your preferences. But both are genuine Jogjakarta Local Food. As standard dishes you'll get white steam rice, gudeg and krecek (a bit spicy) for additional topping you could choose Tahu... More

Gudeg Yu Djum is the best gudeg in Jogja.. love the taste, sweet but not too sweet, and a bit spicy but not too spicy. If you like spicy food you can add "cabe rawit" to make it spicier.

I find it a bit sweet and dry. Try once, and don't think will try it again as I prefer it to be more spicy..

This is not just my opinion, my son and I tried many different gudeg restaurants, warung and kaki lima and Yu Djum is the best. My friend born and bred in Yogya always takes new visitors to eat at Yu Djum.

For me, this is the best gudeg in Yogya. Deep-cooked young jackfruit, combine with the egg or chicken. Its 'sambel goreng krecek' is also great. Just beware that Yogya foods are tend to be sweet, a bit too sweet for most people that are not familiar with.

Im hard core vegetarian and i fully 100% recommend this restaurant to anybody since it really is the most tasty Gudeg in all Indonesia, yes, i have tried many, And its totally vegetarian, made from Jackfruit. So so delicious. Easy to walk to from Malioboro since its close to the Kraton. Dont miss this one once in Yogjakarta.
