“Perfect Ending to a Lombok Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

It is worth spending a few hours here.
Because I had arrived at 1830hrs on Sunday evening, the traffic was noisy because many of them were on their way home on their motorcycles, which naturally was noisy. However at about 1915hrs, the main street got quiet again, and it made a really nice dining ambience. .
The staff was super-friendly and attentive. The brought smoke coil to repel mosquitoes, and left it under the table. Staff served with a smile and sincerity.

The food was awesome. I had the Indonesian Ikan Pelincingan. It was just spicy enough without hurting or creating pain. That said, the spiciness may be too intense for others. So this comment will be variable.

The pineapple wine was POTENT. It was fruity, tasty and kicked a punch. Loved it. It went well it the Ikan dish.

The wifi was bit unstable but that was ok.

The only thing I would like to have seen was more Indonesian desserts, and dishes and Indonesian/Lombok drinks.

Otherwise it was a great ending to a long vacation in Lombok.

“It was good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

The staff was really great and friendly. The service is great as well. The atmosphere is really good. The pick up service that they offered is really helpful especially if it's raining. But, the taste of the food was just okay.

My family of five had dinner at Asmara and totally enjoyed ourselves. They have an interesting gift shop just next to the restaurant too.

“Best in Lombok”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Highly recommend going to Asmara. We had curries which were really authentic and full of flavours and spice. Best curries we have tried in Bali and Lombok. Very courteous staff, transport to hotel, great atmosphere. We stayed at Qunci Villas and although the restaurant there is also very good Asmara was certainly in same league and cheaper.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We found the food quite bland, service was a bit slow. The meals were not bad, the flavour just wasn't there.
