“Nice ambient and location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Ah, a garden in the city! Situated on the second floor right next to malioboro mall. This restaurant actually scores for it's ambient and location.

However the food is rather disappointing. We had some local delights like satay which were ok. But dishes like mix vegetables and tomyam soup has a lot of room for improvement! (ok, I know, who come to Indonesia for tomyam right? haha!)

The pricing is on quite reasonable and it is really nice sitting on the second floor watching the busy Malioboro street with becak and horse rides around. That said, finding a decent place to have a cold beer is not so easy here. So can't ask for much.
For food like Gudeg, probably those small shops along the streets serve nicer, just have to get use to sitting on the floor instead.

“A lucky find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

After walking up and down Malioboro and seeing nowhere we would like to eat we got pointed up to Legian. It was above the very busy street but filled the gap between street food and KFC!
It was pleasant to sit in, the food was good with plenty to choose from and at very good prices.
Service was slightly slow but if you asked there was no problem. Would recommend if you don't want to eat in the hotel but would like a safer option than street food.

“feel intimidated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

2 days ago i came here with my best bro to had a dinner. well, actually the food is good enough for us and the price is just fair. But the only big issues is the waiter and waitress!!why they just sat there and no attention to the guest!even, when i asked an ashtray they put on the table rudely,no smile!no greeting!then i saw a sticker that this restaurant is recommended by tripadvisor,what an over confidence!you have to upgrade your service for sure!
