Pindang Patin experience

If you like fish, you could try pindang patin. For me, head is the best part. The sambal rancak mango also good. This place has also two entry point. (-) Toilet is not clean.

The place is not suitable for one or two person visiting, as the table designed for more than 4 people. I went there for business lunch, the food was standard and it took more than 20 minutes for them to served the food. What I like being there only because the place suitable for business matter. I like their Pindang... More

Delicious pindang patin, but surprisly their grilled fish is more delicious. Big, spacious and shady place, with wood interior. But a little bit dusty, found a spider fallen into my glass water.

I used to frequent this restaurant in the past and had not been back for the past 3 years until today for dinner with friends. The ambience is still nice. It has the look of traditional South Sumateran wooden house with plenty of seats. There was a live band playing local, melayu songs. We had the house special pindang (spicy... More

Pindang Patin is a local food taste like Thai's Tom Yum, but with half piece of river fish, never a sea fish. Patin fish is one of the best river fish, though this fish has a lot of fat. Other fish which I like the most is Baung fish, less fat, and soft meat. The soup taste fresh, sour &... More

Their Pindang Patin is infamous all over Palembang! If you go to Palembang, make sure you try their Pindang Patin. Or if you have bigger room in your stomach, try their Pindang Iga and Pindang Udang as well..

All the pindang menu is a must try. Staff very helpful. The live music is nice although sometimes a bit loud. We had to talk louder to be heard. My american boss loves the food there too. Fried gurame and fried belido are also a must try.
