Please set your mind correctly before visiting : this is a really small place. No fancy décor. It is actually very similar to most eateries you find in Indonesia unless you go to the restaurants in hotels or malls. The menu is extensive, make sure you try several of them, because Indonesian cuisine is so broad in taste that you... More

As someone who grow up with Indonesian food and eat padang food wherever I travel in Indonesia, certainly the food in Upi Jaya is not up to par. The service was bad and expects high tip. Location is okay as it is only few blocks away from 64th station on 7 train. The server keep talking to herself aloud. But... More

What may be missing in ambiance and comfort is more than made up for by the depth of the sauces, the complexity of the curries and the originality of tastes.

When you go there, everyone in the restaurant is Indonesian or Asian. A good sign as it seems like there was a lot of comfort food on the menu and everyone in the small restaurant was happily eating for a very reasonable amount. We had gado gado and vegetables, some tasty tofu and peanut entree, a beef dish, rice and... More

My wife is from Amsterdam, which is known for having some amazing Indo cuisine. I can say this is the most authentic and tasty Indonesian food I've ever had. We traveled from Brooklyn to get there and it was well worth the trip. Definitely going back! 1 app, 2 entrees, 1 dessert = $22
