“A place to experience authentic Palembang food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Come here if you want have a taste of authentic Palembang food. You have to taste their steam fish! to bad they don't serve "Pempek"
The restaurant needs a bit more up keep and I think a bit more variation in their menu

“An excellent restaurant to taste traditional food of Palembang”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

A good place to taste traditional food, comfotable place and in the centre of town. The place is easy to reach cozit is next to Governor Palace. We can enjoy the food in private. Don't forget to try 'pindang patin' there.

“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.

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.
