“It looks so promising...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2011

We arrived shortly before 7.30 pm. There was seventies music playing in the background and two other patrons sitting at a table enjoying a drink. The restaurant itself has a strong Aussie flavour with the Australian channel playing on the TV and a whiteboard advertising forthcoming AFL matches. The menu itself looks so promising. A strong representation of both Western and Indonesian food. A 'specials' menu is on display. Also on display is a selection of Australian wines, all moderatly priced, compared to Jakarta. Our party of four were the only people eating at the restaurant at the time. We ordered a bottle of wine first while we selected our meals. The sparkling wine arrived as advertised, complete with two glasses but minus anyway to keep the bottle cold. Meals are ordered by writing your orders out yourself. Forty minutes later the first of the meals arrived, a 'Gourmet burger'. A word of warning, don't order. The bread roll has this unique combination of being frozen, yet stale, at the same time. The patty consists more of fill than meat and the salad seemed to have enjoyed the same heating process as the patty. Twenty minutes later, two other meals arrived. A hot pizza, dripping with oil but actually had a lot of cheese. The other meal was the Chicken Cordon Bleu, and was hot and seemed quite edible. As for the forth meal, pancakes, after waiting a further twenty minutes we cancelled the order and paid the bill.
All in all, we absolutely concur with the other reviews, don't go.

“Terrible food, bad service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2010

The service was bad (not a smile from any of the three wait staff), we waited half an hour for the food to come out, and the food was terrible. They didn't have many things on the menu. Loud music blasting from the speakers (probably to compensate for the noise coming from the road right next to it). We definitely won't be coming back to this restaurant again.

“More Seven Rings Than Seven Waves”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2010

Let me cut right to the chase in this review. Don't go to Ombak Tujuh,and if you do, in spite of this advice, make sure you check your bill twice. No, make that three times.

Why? Because we had to send the bill back three times before we got the right price. Our menus said Rp 12.000 for juice but because the 'specials' board said Rp 15.000, they insisted we pay Rp 15.000. Someone should explain to these people that 'specials' does not mean a special surcharge which over-rides the price in the menu.

They also added an extra beer to our order and added the prices up incorrectly even after it was deducted. Three mistakes with billing, all of which meant us paying more than the correct price (already rather steep for Java). It means that either these people have a faulty calculator or are trying to systematically overcharge their customers. (Rp 60.000 total- about $7 USD.

The name Ombak Tujuh means seven waves in Indonesian.Seven Rings of Hell would be more like it.
