“Great Atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Since the first time I came in to this resto, the staffs are really friendly. Met Mr. Sastro and Mba Sari, They are really nice person. In love with this place, they could provide what you want. And I was arranged in this place for having Christmas Party with my company. My boss and colleagues love this place. They said good atmosphere, warm place and unique.
Food also great, my favorite one is shrimp ball beside the lamb satay. When we were there the staffs really friendly and great service. With smile and wearing Javanese costume they are really know how to treat us. This place is recommended for private dinner or with groups. And if you are expat, this resto knows how to serve Indonesian cuisine.

“Very unique decor, superb food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

I went back to this restaurant twice during my stay in Jakarta as it was just too good. The first time was for lunch and we had grilled prawns and satay and other authentic indonesian dishes. We were slightly disappointed on our 2nd trip for dinner as they ran out of prawns. All in all, highly recommended for a unique dining experience. Be sure to have the address and phone no. on hand as not taxi drivers know of this place.

“Indonesian Local Authentic Resto With Unique Design & Architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Went to this restaurant only once for dinner in a large group. Food and drink was good and okay. Ingredients were fresh. They're serving local Indonesian food similar to what Bunga Rampai on Menteng is serving. Its fine dining Indonesian cuisine. To me only 1 thing that's bothering I think on the edge/corner near the kitchen the lighting was poor for dinner, there's not enough light.

The way they serve food is also unique. What we call here "prasmanan" or buffet in English. Every element in this restaurant is unique and antique and I think this what also make this restaurant price is higher for Indonesian food. They have also valet parking service and when you need taxi just let them know and they will get it for you. Valet was Rp 25 K.

Cheers. . .

“Overrated, go elsewhere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

The bar in the back was nice, the drinks average. The restaurant has a nice decor, but the food is average, waiting times endless and the service chaotic and unfriendly
