Fantastic Javanese food. Very fresh, very spicy. Excellent vegetarian selection. Great atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of Jakarta. Friendly staff. Live traditional music. Excellent value for money. What more do you want?

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Jakarta. Not only is the food consistently fresh & delicious, I love the decor - a wonderfully funny eclectic mix of collections: Indonesian masks, hats, antiques motor bikes, pool toys, etc. etc. etc. Every time I go I discover a collection I had not seen before. HINT - take insect repellant.

I always like the atmosphere of this place, its not a fancy posh place, a kind of place that once you step your foot in, you will feel at home The architecture and ambience is very unique, for a while i thought I'm not in jakarta, kinda feel like hanging out in the corner of Jogjakarta. The food was ok,... More

Spicy yes, but they have other menus for you with non-spicy tongues! Like the mendoan for example. My favorite place to eat, sometimes for three nights in a row. The menu fits me very well, and its strategic location is easy to approach. Their new mie godok menu make me comes back even more often.

We visit this place several times for lunch due to proximity from our office. The place is a bit hard to find, and hard to park (in the residential complex). Very unique decoration, they mixed everything up in their collection displays which makes it a bit dizzy and odd (some are creepy I must say). They served free welcome drinks:... More

I ordered (I forgot the name), it's chicken baked with chili and the taste is ssooo spicy but delicious. I also ordered red rice, traditional soup, ice tea, and another meal from chicken too (I don't know the name, because I only picked the food what my eyes and my brain want my-mouth-to-eat). Lol.
