This time, I would like to share my experience dining at Timlo Sastro this afternoon. FYI, I had visited Solo frequently since the past 15 years and heard about the famous Timlo Solo long time ago but never had any chance to try it until this afternoon. This time, both of me and my wife were determined to visit the... More

I went to Solo in August 2014. I heard about this Timlo from my friend who lives in Solo. It was very easy to find Timlo Sastro at Pasar Gede. I tried a bowl of Timlo with half portion of steam rice. The chicken broth is very tasty. You can mix the timlo with egg, local sausage, or chicken liver.... More

Actually Im not a big fan of timlo. My mother, who is a good chef, even cant change my mind. But timlo sastro, the famous one, can made mw change my mind. Its light, as Solo's common traditional food, but the contains of the food are well served. I went to the branch in Juanda street, not in ps. Gede,... More

It is famous with their "Timlo" or Solo Sausage - authentic food from Solo City. It is a soup topped with Solo Sausage, Boiled... More

It's a soup : "pindang" egg, solo sousage (this is not the real sousage), so tasty. You can hear the local band singing, if u want to hear the old song (Bengawan solo etc.) make a request, they will sing to you. but little bit smelly 😄if you eat at that place. I think you may try....you will find something... More

Honestly speaking, i agree that the timlo is top notch, but aside from it, there's no other positive impression about timlo sastro. It's located right in front of garbage disposal (i guess there's no need for me to explain the "wonderful" smell) and full of flies. The other branch offers nicer place and way cleaner.

Timlo is an authentic food from the city. It is a kind of chicken soup with clear broth and local 'sausage'. The price is ridiculously cheap for such a tasty food.

Basically it's a chicken soup. But its taste is rich though the soup is not too gravy. Tasty with a slight hint of sweetness, timlo sastro becomes one of the most wanted local food when someone travels to Solo. One bowl is never enough. Do not worry about the price because anyone can afford timlo. If I must sum up,... More

Delicious, exotic, kind of food that you've never eat before (if you're not Javanese or stay in Java)

As I said.... It's the best timlo in Indonesia. It is..... When you find this place the first time, you won't believe it. It is located in one of the famous traditional market of Solo - Pasar Gede. Just in front of the market garbage. In certain time, especially after raining, it smells very bed. So... come in the afternoon... More
