Here for late lunch, so it's not too crowded. Thae "ayam taliwang julat" is the very spicy one. If you're not usual with spicy food don't try. But you could try other type of taliwang they have honey barbeque also. Overall the taste is ok and a bit different with taliwang irama.

The restaurant is nice and open space also we have choices to sit at tradisional side or at standart side. If you love hot and spice food don't skip this place during U visited Lombok. Ayam bakar plecing is a hot chicken (Indonesian chicken we call it ayam kampong) barbecue. They are also have hot and spice fish. But my... More

before we came to this place we had visited some other local restaurant which served the same menu, but i admitted that this place served the best Taliwang chicken, the price was cheaper than the ones in Senggigi, the chicken was very hot and tasty, not to forget; Pelecing Kangkung, sambal kataq and coconut drink mixed with honey

Yeah, nothing beat this Julat Taliwang Chicken in Dua EM Taliwang restaurant! Though, the chicken is not purely grilled, but deep fried first before grilled, which makes it quite unhealthy and oily. I'd say, try this restaurant if you have tried the first and second best Taliwang restaurant!

Compared to other restaurants that offer traditional Lombok's Cuisine, i think that this place is the best..I eat here for dinner for several times, and even promote it to whoever ask me about where to find Ayam Taliwang..Personally i love Sayur Lebui or black soybean..Its hard to find Sayur Lebui everywhere else, and in this place u get a bowlfull!

The Restaurant specialty are Lombok Food like Ayam Taliwang (the super spicy roast chicken), Pelecing Kangkung (spicy salad). If you are a spicy lover, you should try their Ayam Julat, the most spicy of all. And for the drink i recommend a Es Kelapa Madu (coconut honey with ice). The menu are available in Bahasa Indonesia and in English. Lots... More

the foods were just okay, but the price were quite expensive for local cuisines. I went there with some friends from a community. I didn't like the food very much. The pelecing was just fine. The place was okay, but uncomfortable for me.

Ok, taste for each person is different, for you its nice, might not for me and vice versa. What me and my wife feel is that, this place the taste is different. Not better than the last time, it worsened. I did try a few other taliwang place, it's better and cheaper than this.

The food is soo delicious, and extremely hot of course. I order Plecing kangkung and Ayam Bakar Taliwang (called Jalut or whatsoever- the owner told me that this chicken is the hottest one). It is tasted so good, very hot and full of spices, very authentic taste (local taste with nice finishing). Definitely the best Ayam Taliwang and Plecing Kangkung... More

Many of my friends recommended this restaurant to enjoy the lombok food (ayam taliwang, plecing kangkung, etc) but i did't. The rice was hard, and all the food were average. Please checked again your bill before leaving the restaurant, based of our experience they wrote some menus that we didn't requested on the bill (about Rp. 50,000)
