For the first time in my life I tried Indonesian cuisine and it was divine! Great food, authentic interior and traditional dance performances gave us a lot of emotions. Special thanks to the staff of the restaurant for the warm welcome and cozy atmosphere of the Indonesian hospitality. Be sure to try traditional dessert and coffee. But better book a... More

Interesting because you can try the Indonesian cuisine. Also, there is Indonesian traditional dancing every night. As far as the quality of the food goes, it is ok, but I would not rate it too high. The menu is quite restricted.

We had high hopes of this restaurant and are very familiar with Indonesian cuisine. Unfortunately the food was not as good as we'd hoped with the starter of otak-otak being tough and dry (shouldn't have expected much more as this is a Malaysian dish but we know what it's supposed to be like) and one of the main dishes of...

We stumbled into this restaurant whilst looking for a BnB and thank heavens we did. The wondrous hostess looked at our information, said "Oh! I know him." and called to save us. While waiting, we had dinner. The Indonesian food was tamed for us (we're caucasian) but there was a side dish with true Indonesian heat so I know they... More

The restaurant has a large variety of dishes to choose. I repeated for two times. First time I ate a Cincang udang ayam ( shrimp and chicken balls) and a Nasi goreng. In my opinion I prefer Nasi goreng mixed and not separate ingredients but was good. And second day I ate a Udang Cangkir (prawn cocktail) and a Babi... More

On my second day visit to Genova I had late lunch at this Indonesian Restaurant in the middle of old Genova, surrounded by numerous focaccia places or kebab stalls. I tried two starters (actually I also wanted t have one soup, but they said they do not offer them for lunch): fried vegetarian spring rolls and fishcake in banana leaves.... More

I grew up with Indonesian foods and have recently come back from a recent trip in Indonesia. By chance I found this restaurant on facebook (wish I'd found it 10 years ago) and decided to take a 2-hour trip to Genoa just to taste the food. The decor is really beautiful, the food is amazing and the owner and the... More

Don't get me wrong, I love pizza and pasta, but when I saw a large neon sign for Indonesian food, I was sold. I spent my childhood in Indonesia and am always thrilled to find an Indonesian restaurant, especially one in Italy! My husband and I went for dinner and were one of just a few diners in the restaurant.... More
