3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

As a traveller moreover backpacker, i always wanted to see the authentic side of a city, mention my place right now, Bandung. At first i was enchanted by the side walk of this street, the old restaurant that sell traditional ice cream and bread(taste paradise!). yet my imagination was falling after i saw a lot teenager was drawing around on the wall(not murals) and bunch of trash was spread around the street, man that was horrible.

“Very few art shops”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Unlike Bali or Phuket, there were very few art shops and most of the pieces were quite old. Not sure if we were there very early, about 11am, but the street was quite dead and there were not many shops open.

The old Braga Street in Bandung is a cool place to hang out. Lots of food to buy and lots of painters a long the street. Price very reasonable. Recommended.

“This should be a car-free zone”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

The street is very popular and when you walk through it you can see that it is basically divided into three zones. When you start walking from Jl. Asia Afrika, the first thing you noticed in Jl Braga is its paving stones, not the regular asphalt you see in many streets in Bandung. In the first zone, you could find many painting galleries and stores selling frame. In this first zone you could also find Sumber Hidangan, a restaurant/bakery which sells Dutch vintage delicacy. Walking on to the second zone, you would find yourself in cafes, cafes, and cafes, mostly crowded by teenagers and young adults. ANd if you walk further, you'll find yourself in the third zone where many bars and dangdut karaokes are located. This is clearly an adult zone, with bars advertising beers and alcoholic drinks.
What annoys me most are the cars. I personally think that to increase the attraction value of Braga street, this street should be a car-free zone.

“Great food, reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

about 9 days, me n my friend stay at Braga Street, we go three times to Braga Permai. Price reasonable, taste is more than you can expect. You should try tomato cream soup, nasi goreng rendang (very large portion) and chocolate warm cake. I'm also warn about undercook ravioli and lack of space for parking, especially for car.
