A must for coffee lovers. Using their own coffee. They also have some specialty coffees like the cold brew. Definitely need to try!

I often come here with my partner, it's a really cozy place, you can eat, drink, and have a long conversation here comfortably. I really like the chicken cordon bleu, very delicious, love the side dish, the coffee is extraordinary. Last but not least, the cheesecake is definitely melt in my mouth.

Besides coffee, Blue Lotus Coffee House also serves food. I like steaks & roasted chicken. The gravy for both is rich and creamy. The meats are tender. For dessert I used to like apple pie, but in my last visit it's to shower, and the taste of cinnamon is weak. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very comfortable with nice... More

What a great escape for a foreign traveler! I found most Indonesian food not to be my favorite. On our second to last night we went here from a locals recommendation. Delicious! Lots of vegan/vegetarian options also. I probably won't ever be back in this past of the world again.... But if you are, definitely make the stop here.

This restaurant has been rated as high as No. 1 in the recent past. The owner must have a lot of friends! As a coffee shop, it's OK, but as a resto, the menu is limited and the taste not great. Stay away from the curry.

Food is good, especially the Nasi Goreng Bacon(!) :) staff is fast and friendly. When we were there there was some radio broadcasting going on which made the place really noizy. It is not very cheap.
