Local taste guaranteed. Place is old looking with compromises in terms of cleanness. Services are acceptable, friendly staff.

We went there twice because it is located near our hotel (within walking distance). Good menu selection, decent price, nice pond with fish and waterfall. Parking is limited from what I saw but we walked anyway so it doesn't matter. It was a busy lunch time so service was a bit slow, but not bad. If we stay there again... More

Went there for lunch and in general had a good meal. It was a very relaxing meal in a very idyllic setting of nature, and comfortable with a breeze blowing when having the meal. There was Wifi in the restaurant and was pretty fast and stable. The food quality was rather good but the portion turned out to be a... More

Well I have to say that ( authentic interior ) because, I really like the interior of the restaurant. Actually the food just so so. But for me it is good, and recommend for whom who really like culinary adventure because you can find authentic Javanese food here. Here you shoul try Kul Nenek and an original java drink called...

Some of the food we ordered was good and the rest was just ok. We expected the pad thai to be good, but it was not. Disappointing. The sweet and sour gurami fish was tasty. I disliked the service. The waiters did not pay enough attention to our order and missed serving some drinks. We had to REMIND them more... More
