“Always super food and good friendly service, love the place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2011

I can not understand how someone can say this place is not good, I live just around the corner from the restaurant and the food is always to a great standard, and very tasty. The courtyard area is really nice in the warmer months, and the inside dining area is nicely decorated. Staff are really very friendly and polite something German waiters could learn from. All in all I like the place and eat there on a monthly basis.

“Dreadful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2011

After I had a mediocre experience at Kampung Indonesia in 2010, I gave it another try last week.

Positive:
- The interior is really nice and in summer you can enjoy dining in the courtyard.

Negative:
- the food was lousy. Really lousy. It was lukewarm, it was not spicy, it was dry.
- the service was friendly but couldn´t care less that the food was lousy.
- it is bloody expensive considering what you get.

“Tasteless food and friendly service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2010

If I enter a hip but authentic looking restaurant I expect authentic food... the food was tasteless... and my GF specifically ask for the waiters suggestion of something fresh with lemon grass without too much soya... She received something without any distinct taste apart from soya and NO lemon grass. I received lamb with a watery coconut-cream sauce.
The starter sample plate for €10 consists of four different types of deep fried things and ITALIAN antipasti (named Thai on the menu). Too much deep frying for my taste half of it tasted ok.
Only upside of the place is friendly service and that I could easily bring my grandparents here without upsetting their taste butts... in fact they would probably find it really nice and exotic.
Instead of paying €50 for a meal for 2 here go to any dodgy looking Thai imbiss with some Asian looking people! You will pay less than €20 for something 10 times as tasty. If you don't like distinct food go to Mcdonalds!

“If just the food would be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2010

Kampung Indonesia is a weird place:
the interior design is very nice and the open air backyard cozy, the service is friendly and not too slow for beeing indonesian.
BUT the food is only ok. The cook adjusted to the german taste and if you are not used to the asian spices you will like it.
I eat and cook a lot asian food and was very dissappointed about the european taste and especially irritated that they are not serving homemade peanut sauce and sambal.
