“Natural Artist Paiting Gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

it was a memorable adventure, walking along Braga finding paintings and able to choose from an abundant amount and able to buy one, straight away because the price suited what's inside my purse... ha ha ha, thumbs up.

“trying to bring back the golden days”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

about a century ago, braga is like orchard singapore, where the rich people, mostly dutch who lives in bandung shop in the boutique, book shops,flower shop, etc.
sadly, decades ago braga looks loose its charm and turning into an area packed with barsand abandoned buildings
but nowadays, braga want to regain the image, where you can walking along this 700m street with more secure feeling, admiring the old buildings with art deco style, or taking pictures just like professional or amateur photographer do everyday on the street side.
there are 2 hotels,1 apartment, and new restaurants/ semi outdoor foodcourt /coffee shop where you can enjoy the beautiful braga and delicious food

“Lots of prostitutes”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

This place has lots of prostitutes and pimps. Do not come here alone or with young children. Lots of bars and clubs in the area but dirty ones and mostly men guests and looks unsafe to go to. I would avoid this place unless very necessary.

“Braga Permai: old-fashioned meals, home made ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

My family of 6 ate at Braga Permai in Jalan Braga Bandung. It's an old establishment dating back to the Dutch Colonial era. The restaurant may looks understated, but we came for the food. Meals cooked in old-fashioned way. No fancy trimming. Good quality ingredients, basic sauces. Choices of western and chinese. The place also sells home-made bread, cakes, cookies, ice cream, and chocolate. I make it a tradition to always buy some chocolate, the 'Bokke Poeds(?)' cookies, and to savor their ice cream. A meal there always give me and my family a nice feeling.
