“A simple feast worthy for a review”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2015

The outstanding part is because the fact that this dish being carbohydrate-heavy (chinese-style noodle which tends to be a bit oily) and yet can achieve a comfort-food status, it shows how the medley of light yet rewardingly-rich chicken-flavours creates an ensemble of top-rating comfort food.

To believe is to try this. I have eaten here often and tend to take this for granted on how good this noodle is.

“It's good , but so expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2015

Food :
The noodle smell and taste good.
Side dishes like fried meatball, siew mai and other also taste good.

Place :
Very neat for a simple noodle restaurant.

Price :
Approx IDR 50-90k (noodle + side dish), but no receipt given by the restaurant. So don't know about the price detail.

“Over rated”

OK noodle, considering the place and the type of food, somewhat expensive. Below expectation. Located in a small street in Jakarta Kota old city area.

“Nice noodle dish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2014

A restaurant without frills. Clean with efficient staff. They take your orders even before you sit down.
The dry noodles is served with steamed chicken meat. The best part is the noodles- just the right texture. The hot sauce that is added on to the noodles is real hot.
The place is very popular with the locals. I did not know that it was a restaurant until I reached the main door. There were so many cars parked outside.

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Totally agree with others reviewers, it is notoriously pricey. Lots of people feel like they are getting ripped off. Their noodle are tasty, so are other popular noodles shops around Jakarta. So nothing special except for the price. Service is so so. If you are curious please try but hold your curses after that.
