“Great seafood, messy table cleanup....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

The food is great, taste is great... but the cleanup team is somewhat a mess.. You don't want to wait on the table during the cleanup...you might lose your appetite... I thought the management could improve on this.

This restaurant is gaining its popularity. Expect long queue during busy hour & weekends...

“Delicious traditional Indonesian food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

My mouth is watering just by writing this review.

I go to this place few times a year, mostly with big group of friends or co-workers. Best time to go there is during lunch, but better make reservation before since it's always packed -- but don't worry for the place being overcrowded because the place is huge and very spacious.

The food itself is really really really really GOOD!!

My favorite dish is the fried tofu, yes you got it right, the fried tofu is absolutely delicious! And then the crispy fried gurame fish or the grilled gurame fish and various traditional veggies. They also have many traditional sweet drinks that worth to try.

The servers are very helpful, and this might sound silly but I love the handsoap! Smells soo goodd!!

They also sells various Indonesian snacks to go which is nice.

One thing that need some improvement is probably the toilet. It could have been better :)

If you're looking for a big lunch with big family or friends. This is the place to go!

“Great food and value. Always runs out though...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

The food here is rally good, really consistent and REALLY good value.

The menu is short and never changes: the Pucuk Labu (cooked with rice wine) is the best vegetable I have ever eaten anywhere in the world, period. But it ALWAYS runs out by 7.30! The fish and chicken is delicious and the Karadok is fab...if it doesn't run out!

The restaurant has a loyal clientele of enthusiastic local eaters (foreigners are rare) who put up with the consistent and chaotic disorganization because what you eat (if it hasn't run out) is so, so very good.

Has a sister branch in Pecenongan in the centre
