This restaurant is located close to Gedung Sate. Many locals still to this date come to this restaurant to experience the local Sundanese culture of eating. You will be either sitting in traditional tables or you can also opt to sit in a matted floor to try the real Sundanese culture. Of course eating with your hand is also an... More

I think this kind of restaurant is suit for big city person who never live in a small village, so they can try the traditional eating experience that they never get in their town. People say it's a popular restaurant in Bandung, with old Sundanesse menu and old eating ambience. As a person who live in a small town for... More

First of all, if you expect to have a properly sit in restaurant or fine dining, look elsewhere. This place is as nice a place for commoners to eat as it gets. It's rustic, simple and gives you a genuine traditional, Sundanese experience of the past. They don't even call themselves restaurant. They call themselves "Rumah Makan" or simply "Eating... More

I came here because my family told me it was a famous 'old style' restaurant. When I was there it was very crowded and dingy. Toilet was very dirty and wet and there was no toilet paper. I couldn't enjoy eating because everyone was smoking so the whole restaurant was smoky. I could find all type of Sundanese traditional foods... More

If you visited Bandung and want to try the real home-made sundanese food then you must try this out. Appearantly there will be a long line during lunch time especially during weekend, so you need to adjust your time of visit but I can assure you that it's all worth it

Tried this restaurant because of its famous name. Food was okay, home-made Sundanese food. But for a traditional food like that, it was overpriced. We could have eaten somewhere else with more decent place. Won't comeback for a 2nd time.

Eating traditional sundanese food, probably we can say it as compilation of west java foods and beverages. Strategic place, down town near Gedung Sate. Avordable price, indonesian taste. A nice place to visit.
