“Real comfort food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Having turned up in Cologne and discovered our hotel was terrible my boyfriend and i went on the hunt to find solace in food. We were greeted by a warm welcome and excellent service. The restaurant feels like a cocoon of warm Indonesian hospitality. We had the satay chicken on the bone which was tasty and succulent and followed this by a noodle dish something a kin to pad thai. All the food was tasty and comforting and also very reasonably priced. The portion sizes are generous and with the ambiance all adds up to a really lovely night out. Thank you Haus Java.

“Perfect !!! They take you straight to Tropical Island of Indonesia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

I spent almost every other night in this restaurant while I was in Cologne. This fine dining Indonesian restaurant with its mouth watering meal, great service and Indonesian traditional music really is a great place that will take you straight to Tropical Island of Indonesia.

Special thanks to Om Heri, Desi, Om Seno for a wonderful experience.

PS: Their signature dish is Rendang - Indonesian dish made by simmering beef for hours in coconut milk and spices until the liquid has evaporated.

“Nice service, all of indonesian in one package :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2011

I went to cologne, and missed my indonesian favourites dishes, luckily i found this restaurant on a trip advisor and woow, finaly i can eat indonesian food in cologne.
The service is very good, and looks like the restaurant is in a new atmosphere.
And the rendang is made from special spices imported from padang said the owner.
Good for rendang lover, altought the serundeng is too sweet
