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.

Come here if you want have a taste of authentic Palembang food. You have to taste their steam fish! to bad they don't serve "Pempek" The restaurant needs a bit more up keep and I think a bit more variation in their menu

A good place to taste traditional food, comfotable place and in the centre of town. The place is easy to reach cozit is next to Governor Palace. We can enjoy the food in private. Don't forget to try 'pindang patin' there.

Pindang patin is very famous in Palembang, a very recommended one is on this restaurant. It's pitty that we couldn't get the 'famous' taste of people said. The pindang was so average and yet every menu that they got was not worth with the price.

Love the local delicacies of this restaurant. This is a must go for me as they serve the food in traditional style and the quality of the food is superb compared to many other restaurants. I always try to have a meal at this place every time I visit Palembang.
