This is great little Indonesian restaurant. We stopped in here at 11 am. On the cusp of breakfast and lunch where not many places were open. Spicy chicken, beef rendang and the curried beans is the best way to start a day.

Don't be put off by and empty food court before 11.45am. By mid-day this place is bustling with office workers and people picking up take-away lunches. Good wholesome authentic Indonesian Food and plenty of veg options. I'll be back now I've discovered this one!

Yum! This cafe fills a hole in Darwin for a quick & spicy work lunch - in the middle of the city. A good choice of rice, meat & 2 veg on weekdays. Not too much, not too expensive. The sambal adds an extra zing...More
