The portions were very large. I was quite full. The service was also very good. Very helpful. Lots of rice with the meat. We stumbled on it accidentally. But i was quite impressed.

I invited a group of business associates to dinner at Jawa. Whilst the food and service were good, I found the restaurant to be noisy. I hope as also disappointed that they did not accept Visa or MasterCard. I would recommend the Bakabana.
