Good and cozy place, both for family and business dining. The pho was above my average level of expectation :p Worth the prices and always want to go back anytime thinking of the Pho.

Cali Deli Madame Ching Cikini Central Jakarta January 2020 Cali Deli Love for 60 K IDR++ Banh Mi (the Vietnamese word for bread) is more colloquially used to refer to a variety of savoury sandwiches which i find tend to be nicer than most other...sandwiches because of the amount of vegetables they usually incorporate. Naturally, the fact that they have that really great combination of crunchy baguette skin with a soft soft center - which soaks up all the juices from both the meat component as well as the pickled vegetables - really allows you to experience so many layers of flavours and textures in every bite. This rendition is made with soft and juicy black pepper beef which clearly exemplifies the quality of both the basic ingredients as well as the treatment of the ingredients. The beef was soft and juicy, it was well marinated, and it just mixed so deliciously with the rest of the sandwich. The fresh vegetables were great, the pickled ones are amazing, and the sandwich itself is quite sizable - so it really is quite worth it. Sadly the 45 K++ paradise ice is just okay, but the 50 K++ ice chocolate was great and the cream was also enjoyable although i am not usually a fan of cream, so i did order less of it and i kinda regretted that decision after my first scoop. All in all, it really was great value for food and the drinks may feel a bit on the expensive side, but some of the drinks are also worth it. #vietnamesefood #in #jakarta #indonesia #banhmiMore

If you haven’t tried the food here at Cali Deli and Madame Ching, you’re missing out! We come here often and I always get the Cali Deli Love and it never disappoints! My wife always gets the lemon grass chicken sandwich and it’s also very...good! The restaurant has a pleasant vibe w both in and outside dining options. Just across the street from the antique alley at Jalan Surabaya.More

I love the turkey bahn mi so much that I’ve never tried other dishes. However, yesterday I’m feeling a bit out of the weather so I ordered the chicken mushroom cream soup and the mushroom stuffed dish. They turned out amazing too 😍👍👍

Visited the Surabaya Antique Market and along the Long road of shops is this test stop cafe restaurant - welcome respite from the heat and a cold beer and something to eat. It’s clean, relaxing and pleasant. They have aircon area and non aircon, your...choice. Non aircon is actually quite cool with fans and very comfortable. Food is good. A little on the expensive side for a cafe here but not too bad. Quality of the food is good and the chicken salad was excellent. Just near the Hilton Doubletree hotel - about 500 m walk, and the markets. This is just adjacent to the Cicini train stationMore

Nice restaurant serving Vietnamese food on the famous Surabaya street. Fresh spring rolls were good, as were the banh mi, although they weren't quite as good as I had hoped. It was also very strange to read that the inspiration for the restaurant came from...a visit to California, so maybe the banh mi are more like American banh mi than Vietnamese ones, but still a good experience.More

This place has good phô or Vietnamese rice noodles and bahn mi or sandwich. Tonight we had dinner here and it’s as delicious as always. Good friendly service and we love the ambiance.

I love the veggie sandwich here, it’s Vietnamese bahn-mi. The baguette is different, it’s crunchy and delicious. The bahn-mi I had today was delicious as expected. Nice cool non smoking room too. Fast service.
