Mid week no other patrons when we arrived at 7.00pm. Super friendly service, chilled water, menus. Huge choice of dishes. Started with prawn Lumpia. Piping hot, very tasty and the chilli dipping sauce was spot on. Mains. What to choose? One Bakmi Goreng and a Kari Ayam. So - stir fried noodles and chook curry. Noodles were reportedly only luke...

This is the most pleasant restaurant I've been to in Sydney. Their staff is great, they are very friendly as well as polite. Lamb shank is my favourite while other dishes are also amazing. It makes you want to return not just for the food but also for the experience. It's a good place for couples, friends and families.

We had a gathering of some family and booked a table for eight on a friends recommendation. We were all glad we did. The food was fantastic. Two entrees followed by seven courses and rice and every one a winner. Great flavours, great value and wonderful friendly service. Definitely going back. I am a fan of Indonesian food and this...

Small and cosy restaurant. I had the beef rendang and it was excellent. The restaurant was nicely decorated had great staff and the cost was very reasonable. I'd eat here again.

We have dined at this restaurant for years and it never disappoints. We especially love the whitebait fritters and the stays are to die for! Served on little grills, these juicy skewers are Indonesia on a plate! The sauce is sweet, nutty and light, not laden with peanut butter and coconut cream like other 'westernized' versions of satay sauce. The... More

Food is delicious and well-prepared. Quality is the same each time we go, which is very good. Food is tasty and fresh, all the different dishes taste authentically indonesian.

This was our second visit to this Indonesian cafe and it won't be our last. The food is delightful and the people very accommodating. There is a tendency just to think Thai in Sydney when going out for a cheap eat but there are so many other alternatives.Jimbaran is one of them

I went here with my family for a birthday celebration, and the food/customer experience was of less than average quality. Food portions were small and too salty. Attendant short changed us $10. Would not go there again.

We were a party of four for dinner on a Wednesday night and it was a shame that the restaurant was quite empty. Service was very good and our food was excellent. We had a selection of dishes to share with the standout favourite being the grilled whole snapper served with special Jimbaran chilli. Other great choices were a seafood... More

Service was super friendly yet not intrusive. We loved the Bandeng duri lunak- twice cooked milkfish. The fish was stewed till the bones are soft like sardine then deep fried. If you've never tried it, I highly recommend it. There were plenty of other choices from their extensive menu. The Anugerah grilled chicken was little on the dry side but... More
