haven't been here in years but the menu is still the same which is Ok as the food is good. $12 for the small plate and $13 for the large so you may as well go large for the extra dollar

Worth the hunt, it's really not too hard to find but not so in the open, but it will be all worth it once you place any of their delicious food on your tastebuds

This shop doesn't look like much but when you step inside you can see that it is usually packed around lunch time. And with good reason. The food here is absolutely amazing. Full of flavor and very reasonably priced. If you are looking for authentic Indonesian food you should definitely visit Sari Rasa.

Sari Rasa is my most frequented lunch venue. I highly recommend the chilli beans, dried beef and potato and the eggplant with steamed rice.

Great Indonesian selection for lunch. Doesn't look like much and is at the back of an arcade but is a popular spot with locals looking for a bit of spice at lunchtime. About $15 a plate of various selections.

Very casual and bit tired but it is a very popular spot and the food is tops and value is very good. Bit hard to find, but decent feed. Lunch hours on weekdays only.

This place is not much to look at and you definitely would eat here if you never heard about it before. But it is Darwin favourite and many locals come here because of the authentic Indonesian cuisine and generous servings. There little old ladies serve you and they may not be the most bubbliest but they are adorable. Just looking... More

Came back this year after a number of fantastic lunches late last year. This time came for lunch everyday while we are in Darwin. Recommend the chilli egg, dry beef, chilli curry chicken and sambal.

Had a tasty lunch today - rice, chilli eggplant, beef rendang and spicy egg with sambal. Authentic flavours and well worth the visit - food is more Javanese 'hotness' rather than true Padang (Sumatran) style, but still spicy enough. Staff are pleasant - agree with others who have rated highly. I will be coming back again...

Thank David K
