when i was childhood time, my parents always eat the legend soto ayam in ambengan. Until now, the taste still authentic, unique, and still legend for me. A bowl of chicken soup with chicken fillet and koya (a ruin of shrimp crackers) make a joyful and feeling memories.

If you want to try the Surabaya's legendary coto (or you can call it soup), you must try this one. The seasoning is really great. The place is clean, and the staff is very quick. Just wait for 3 minutes after your order and voila, it is on your table. But fot the price I think is a little overprice.... More

Soto Ambengan or some people called it Soto Pak Sadi, is a famous chicken soup in Surabaya. The restaurant served only Soto Ayam, this place is always full of crowd at lunch so prepare to get here earlier.

If you are the kind of traveler or foodist that need to try local dish or restaurant that is well known or an icon in a certain city or place, then you can try soto ambengan in Jl. Ambengan Surabaya. The taste is good, yeah, just good... :)

Always the first choice since my teenage back in 80's. This chicken soto gives unforgettable taste, with thick and creamy yellow soup, blended with your own content, plain sliced chicken meat, or skin chicken. Located at Jalan Ambengan, this place is a must stop for lover traditional food. Very crowded at lunch time, since the place is not really big.... More

Has been a regular customer in their Jakarta Branch in Wolter Monginsidi so had to pay a visit to the original spot. The soup is excellent as expected. Very crowded unlike in Jakarta but the wait is not too long. There is hardly any chicken meat, however, and that is kind of upsetting seeing other traditional places in East Java... More

sad to say its not what i was expecting. its was really good when it first opened. sadly the last time i visited there the size has gone down alot. almost half. although the taste is still good, but you would be getting less now.
