“Good but........”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Five of us ate here and the service was acceptable, the place is clean and comfortable - as was the food. But the food is not so very Indonesian - it is amended to suit western palates in our view and to that extent was disappointing.
Vey pleaqsdant and good value for money but I think we expected a little more in the authenticity of the food.

“Great little eatery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The Indonesian food here is really tasty and they're not afraid to do proper "pedas" Indonesian style, even for the tourists.

“Bland and hassled by street hawkers”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

If you are after bland touristy food and want to be constantly hassled by hawkers selling DVDs and jewellery, then this is your place! Only plus was it is cheap, other than that it is another disappointing food venue in Lombok.

“Disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We went here for lunch and had a red thai curry. It didn't taste anything like a thai curry and had gritty bits in it. I was ill for two days afterwards. The other annoyance was that street hawkers are free to walk into the restaurant, so whilst you're eating you're being hastled to buy items.
