“Over-rated restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

Pindang patin is very famous in Palembang, a very recommended one is on this restaurant. It's pitty that we couldn't get the 'famous' taste of people said. The pindang was so average and yet every menu that they got was not worth with the price.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Love the local delicacies of this restaurant. This is a must go for me as they serve the food in traditional style and the quality of the food is superb compared to many other restaurants. I always try to have a meal at this place every time I visit Palembang.

“unsatisfied taste and service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

I think, they should review their food taste. Earlier they had pindang patin which good taste, i like it and recommended for second time.

And also, their servant untrained-well. I was asked them for billing. It take half an hour to find my request list which is recorded by previous shift. They previous shift didnt handed over to incoming what they have done. Horrible!!

I think you have to think twice for visitthis restaurant. Until they improve the system

“Good Local Palembang Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Come here as my colleage take me, I found there are many good local Palembang food serve by this resto.
You have to try Pindang, a spicy soup which made from many spices, very spicy and nyummy, a perfect companion to a plate of warm rice.
There are many choice of Pindang main ingriedient, you can choose fish, beef oxtail, beef ribs, or shrimp.
The most famous is fish Pindang or Pindang Patin (local said).
The most unique food is tempoyak sambal, made of fish and durian, very tasty and unique, you will not find food like this elsewhere.
For dessert choose ice teller, a combination of jack fruit, young coconut, milk, and ice on heavy syrup. Its taste like heaven....
Overall this is a must try resto in Palembang....
