When I was a child, I've been here once and I enjoyed it a lot that years after that, I still want to eat here again. I went here again on march 2014 with my 80 years old grandma. The first problem we encountered was the stairs. Of course my grandma couldn't climb stairs. The staffs were very helpful. They... More

My family and I had the breakfast buffet a few months ago. Surprisingly, compared to the taste and the quality of the food in the past, it did not meet our expectation this time. All of them were just ok.

Great Chinese food, friendly staffs and amazing colonial setting. We were impressed by the food, everything was delicious. Admitedly, we didn't try the famous Peking Duck, but the other Signature Dishes that we tried were delish. The price is reasonable, especially compared to Jakarta's price. Since the restaurant is rarely full, I suggest that you call ahead if you want... More

Recently we had dinner at Sarkies. We had been there before, and their duck was nice. Last time we went there, we ordered the complete duck, devided over three courses. After 10 minutes the waiter came back to our table, telling that the duck was finished...what's this...? Sarkies is just known for their Duck, and than they didnt have it..we... More

In my opinion, this restaurant is one of the best Chinese Restaurant in Surabaya. The food is very tasty, the service is good, and the place is tastefully decorated with lots of antique clocks and old pictures which make a rather nice atmosphere. The prices are a bit pricey for locals, but it is actually quite reasonable for a fine... More

We were the only diners in the restaurant - it seems tastes have moved on from this period location - but the kitchen was still pushing for excellence. Skip past the sticker-shock first pages of the menu and you'll find a menu with lots of variety. For some reason, the dishes are priced at small, medium and large sizes; don't... More

Conveniently located in the historic Majapahit hotel, Sarkies offer a wide selection of Chinese dishes. The food is excelent, the service is attentive and the atmosphere will take you back to the by-gone era of pre-independent Indonesia. Overall one of the best restaurant in the city of heroes!

The Majapahit is something special. Doesn't look much from the outside but is magic inside. The best gardens, walk around and look. Sarkies too has good Chinese food, but the standard has slipped a bit (we've been here for a while). Please tell them to renovate the downstairs cafe. It is so out of step with the rest of this...
