Been here many times, but to be honest now their service is really poor. The food selection is not much and the taste is so so 6/10. The place is so boring, need some improvement..

This is a nice restaurant situated on the top floor of a mall. It is cosy and comfortable. It has a nice vibe to it. For the food, nothing short of amazing. Service is also excellent. Highly recommended.

The place is nice and good food. It wasn’t super easy to find (i mean inside the mall), not long options for vegetarian. Just disappointed (they told us quite immediately) no alchool

Canting is the hot wax tool used in batik production. A careful and steady hand, artistic skills and much patience is required to create the world famous Indonesian batik shirts and dresses. Canting restaurant mirrors these fine batik talents to produce food of creative elegance...in a restful and patient atmosphere of one of the best restaurants in Java I have been fortunate to visit after more than 30 years in Indonesia. Enjoy a night in Canting. You will not regret it!More

Well i cant really say everything because i haven’t tried it all but every menu that i have tried is great! Canting entrance is a bit hidden but you could ask around in the galleria mall. The price is worth the food in my opinion....Great very friendly staff and services, i applaud them for that. Definitely a must try!More

Located on the top floor of a nondescript shopping mall, we were pleasantly surprised when the lift doors opened and greeted with a modern space with an industrial chic vibe. The outdoor and patio seating options should be quite lovely in the evenings. The menu...selection is quite wide with both Western and Indonesian options, we enjoyed the latter styled dishes such as the steak and petai (stink bean) fried rice and the well priced (USD 3!) grain bowls laden with a combination of spicy stewed chicken and stir fried long beans with coconut. The restaurant also serves alcohol - which is relatively uncommon in Jogja - but don't expect anything mindblowing here, you are after all, paying less than USD 6 for a cocktail.More

Loved it here! Food was delicious. The staff were kind and attentive. Indo food looked good but we had western and it was very good. The coffee burger was exceptional, such inventive flavours- and chicken was great. The chocolate lava cake was perfectly gooey in...the middle. Wine and beer great. Decent prices. Great atmosphere. Would recommend to everyone. It is at the top of a shopping mall which we didn’t expect, but don’t let that put you off. Go up to the 3rd floor and then take some steps up to the 4th floor and roof.More

Great ambience, excellent food, wonderful service. And reasonably priced. What more do you want ? Starting from drinks and starters to the desserts, a superb menu - as a family of 5, we ordered a combination of many dishes and loved them. Specially the Nasi...Ayam Betutu ( Spicy Chicken and Rice).More

We really enjoyed our meal at Canting. The vibe is very cosmopolitan and hip, and there is a nice outdoor seating area. The food was some of the best we’ve had. A nice taste of home and the Asian options were also delicious.

Eaten here twice during our stay here in Jogja. Both times we chose the local food options and weren’t disappointed. The staff warned us about dishes that were spicy and explained any items we weren’t sure of. Would eat here again and would recommend this...restaurant to visitors to the area. Located on the rooftop at the Galleria Mall it is centrally located and you can eat indoors or out.More

If you get a chance, visit around sunset time! Servings are big. Their chicken burger was exceptional.

I am currently travelling Indonesia for 7 weeks with my boyfriend and wanted to treat him to a nice meal with my boyfriend. The service here was AMAZING, providing me with a special vegan menu via WhatsApp before arrival and providing a cake with a...message along with staff singing! The food was delicious and the portion sizes perfect. A great mix of Indonesian and western food. A DJ played outside and there was a great atmosphere. The cocktails were also great. 6 cocktails, 2 starters and 2 mains came to under £40. Would highly recommend this restaurant.More

They have cozy interior decoration with industrialism style. The mirrors decoration at the stairs added the secluded ambiance. The drinks: Teh Tarik, strawberry squash, and lychee ice tea, all are delicious! The soup: the potato soup is tasty. I like the composition between the chicken,...marinara, pineapple and cheese in their Hawaiian Blue Flatbread. Also, superb ingredients in their mac and cheese, tasty creamy pesto penne. The price is fair, not too expensive. Very nice and responsive staffs. Overall, worth for our next visit. Good job! Keep up the good work!More

Getting there: - there's like a specific lift that leads to Canting Restaurant on the 4th floor and the carpark. There's like a staircase up to the restaurant as well by going to the top floor of Galleria Mall. The Place: - there's like two...areas, one outdoors for smoking and more noisy groups and another for indoors The food : As usual, not a food critic and will judge based on my Singaporean taste buds. The food was excellent, affordable and large portions. In fact we bought and ate so much food but it only equated to about $25 sgd per pax. That's mental. Tldr: just come here, you won't regret itMore
