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.

One of traditional food that I like is 'Pingdang Belida" this is a fish soup, the taste like tom yam from Thailand, a bit spicy and sour, so fresh and delicious... must try!!

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.
