“Yummy, cheap food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I have made this place our favourite lunch venue. When you find a good thing you stick to it which is why we keep going back for the Nasi Goreng and chicken skewers. The flavours are terrific and with a dash of kecap manis it is some of the best local food you'll find in Seminyak. The staff are friendly and are always courteous which also keeps repeat business. Situated right in the middle of Seminyak Square it's in a great location for when you need to refuel for the rest of the day.

“Local food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We tried Kafe Betawi on our first day in Seminyak while we were still orienting ourselves to the area. We just happened to chance upon it when we needed lunch. Service is very slow. There was one server for the entire restaurant. Otherwise, food is decent and prices are as well. Their understanding of english though is limited and we noticed other tables trying to communicate dietary needs with no luck. We didn't have any trouble and the laksa we ordered was good. What was helpful were all the pictures in the menu.

“What was with the taste”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

First one was a trial and the second one, pure regret! never really get the taste (or is this more Jakarta fav but failed?) Food was mediocre at their best, most unfriendlier staff you will ever find and the service was so slow and the pricey. Opted for Soto Ayam was poorly executed (does made street vendor like earning Michelin star) quite salty and the broths taste funny (well bad actually)

Good for tourist to sample Jakarta food and being ripped of or every Jakarta folks who can't live without their own cuisines otherwise must stay away from this place

“Good simple Indo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Good simple indo food at a very god price. It seems to be a chain store so don't expect home style cooking. There is an extensive menu with al of your Indo favourites and some more unusual ones to try. Not bad for a quick and simple lunch.
