“One of the Best Local Taste Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

It become one of my favorite restaurant to visit especially for the lunch/dinner meeting. For sure Tahu Telor (Tofu/Egg serve with soy sauce) and sate buntel (lamb satay) is one of my favorite menu. Love it!

“Always a pleasure, getting better although it could be even better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

It's not the cheapest satay in Indonesia, however I do not know how many times I've patronized the many branches of this legendary eating institution of Jakarta/Indonesia ... I never have enough of their satays, whether be Chicken, Sweet Beef, Lamb and the not so usual Chicken Skin. Served with charcoals underneath in a neat ceramic serving, fantastic!
Always consistent and very high standard when it comes to their dishes & drinks.
Their peanut sauce is divine and I can always asked for more, great balance, light, drips nicely and not too sweet.
Traditional drinks/desserts are always nice to enjoy and not too sweet; Es Merah Delima, Es Tape, Drip Coffee, etc.
Serving staffs are polite and friendly, they are well trained, well done!
I would stay away from their "sotos"/soups, this time their Soto Betawi is bland, could be better.
Javanese interior with a nice bright ambiance is just comfortable, Menteng branch.
Try the Friday & Saturday night special, after 9.30pm you'll get a serve of "Nasi Goreng"/Fried Rice with your satay order, you can't go wrong with that.
I must say I prefer to go here than their sister satay franchise Tesate; over-priced and food is below expectation for such a posh place; one off table (single piece timber), etc.

“Indonesian fast food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

I visited sate khas senayan at Cityloft on the weekend at Lunch time (12.30) and the place is not as packed as the weekdays. The servers are prompt to get orders and the food are served within 10 minutes. The variety of food on the menu is great, they offers variety of traditional Javanisee food and desserts. This time I got Nasi kuning campur and es kopyor. The restaurant's favorite is Sate as their brand their restaurant but I dont see many people ordered sate at this visit. The taste of the food is in the edge of traditional food, it's a safe taste for foreigners. Even their famous es cendol durian, the durian taste is friendly for my foreigner friends. The range of price is still reasonable between Rp40,000 - 100,000 per person and this time I spent about Rp70,000. Conclusion is fast service and safe tasting Indonesian food.

“Excellent sate!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Place looks a bit like a fastfood restaurant, but the sate is really excellent! Service is also good. Will definitely come back.
