This is one of my oldest restaurants that I have been visiting since childhood.
The Soto Ayam is really good and highly recommended.

“Excellent soup but where is the meat?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Has been a regular customer in their Jakarta Branch in Wolter Monginsidi so had to pay a visit to the original spot. The soup is excellent as expected. Very crowded unlike in Jakarta but the wait is not too long. There is hardly any chicken meat, however, and that is kind of upsetting seeing other traditional places in East Java always seem so generous with them.

“hot soup”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

sad to say its not what i was expecting. its was really good when it first opened. sadly the last time i visited there the size has gone down alot. almost half. although the taste is still good, but you would be getting less now.

“not so good anymore”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

it was good back in the days, but nowadays the soto is less and less, they sometime just give you some chicken very thin slice that you literally can count it.

used to be good, too bad nowadays isn't that much of anything anymore
