Get their Indonesian, not American Chinese

Their Indonesian food is really great. If you can handle spiciness, you'll love their babi ricarica. I like their Taiwanese noodle soup and egg rolls too. Don't get your typical Americanized Chinese food here tho. It could be really disappointing.

This cafe is quite a find. I visit Tallahassee frequently and didn't even know it was there. The food was freshly cooked and served by friendly servers. The portions were huge - enough to take with us for a second meal. We love Asian food but not the prefab buffet kind. This is an answer to our wishes! Highly recommend!

Recently visited with a large group of 35 and they were very accommodating, friendly, with quick service and LARGE portioned entree's. If you are in town THIS is the place you want to go.

Trust me, try the Mongolian tofu! Try the Indonesian options and go ahead and splurge on those Chinese donuts. This place is locally owned and operated; Tan herself is often in the kitchen cooking. The place has recently remodeled and expanded. It does seem that they struggle to keep a trained waitstaff in place so service can be lacking.

I first stepped into the building and was suprised by how small it was and had no decor. I had no problem with that as some food comes from less than beautiful places. I had the "spicy" sushi and my husband had the pork and rice. Both of these dishes came out bland. My sushi was not spicy, 3 of... More

The food and service was good. The place is really small and had a fishy smell. We almost left because of that but stayed and enjoyed the meal. They gave us a ton of food. Enough for lunch and a to go plate for another meal.

Three of us had lunch at Tan's today. I ordered their special thatI discovered was fried tofu covered with a gooey peanut sauce on a bed of steamed greens decorated with a sliced hard boiled egg. One of my guest ordered a stir fry with shrimp. She didn't eat very much. Our friend ordered a salad which she enjoyed and... More

I ate here here several times from November to March and love the two main beef indonesion dishes. The server has been the same each time and his service is excellent.

This is a tiny little Asian restaurant which if you don't know about, you don't know! Hidden inside the Esposito gardens. I had been here for my B'day lunch after hearing all the great reviews plus we wanted to try something different. The dishes are very flavorful, you can smell the lemon grass and kaffir leaves around. My husband ordered... More

We also ran into family that were eating there on our first visit. We've been back twice. There's is inside and outside seating. Take out or eat in. We... More
