“Why on earth should this be so well rated eludes me”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Went there for lunch. Nice, sober setting. Efficient, but not overly friendly service. Food: very watered down, vaguely "asian". - lettuce salad with a bit of peanut ad spice, chicken pieces in a peanut sauce that also had a pretty artificial aftertaste. All in all a boring, harmless,very_middleoftheroad_meal. Price for the set menu 21.50, which is too much for what it is but not overly expensive. Maybe it's better in the evenings?

“In one year didn't change, same quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

We had dinner in Dapur Indonesia Restaurant and we loved it. Food is delicious, service is nice and they have a lovely terrace, so you can enjoy the warm days. The only thing, is a bit pricey, and not even in Zurich city center. The main course is around 30chf. But in general, was a pleasure to come back.

“way too expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

We have been in Dapur Indonesia Restaurant because the good ratings we read about this restaurant. Not too far away from our home, was no question to have a try.

The location is in the urban area (Oerlikon) of Zurich not too far away from the train station. Car park's easy too as the Nordhaus Parking is just across the restaurant. The place is rather small but we had a reservation.

Looking at the offers show a pretty expensive price list - the plate I choose was 32 CHF without the rice! Remember, the place is not in the center of zurich and not near the Paradeplatz. No starters, no wine and no desert we pay 120 CHF ($140) --- Crazy!

To be fair, the food taste good and the service was not the fastest but ok. Everybody speaks english so that's a big plus too.

Pro

+taste
+service

Con

-price (total overprices for Asia food)

No far away you can find other Asian restaurants which have the better value for money!

“great crispy duck, nice atmosphere and expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

the starters were not great, mainly fried vegetables and if you skip them you'll not regret it. nevertheless when they served us the crispy duck, it was really tasty and perfectly cooked. even the chicken with peanuts sauce was excellent. the waiters speak english and service was fast. skip the dessert. expensive, but i would go back just for the crispy duck!
