If you dont mind with the surrounding (near traditional market, near garbage dump), the soup is quite nice. You can choose the ingredient from sosis solo, chicken innards, boiled eggs or all (complete/ komplit). For the drinks they have fresh & delicious ice beras kencur (traditional drinks from rice & galanga) or you can try ice caramel, or just a... More

Overall - the taste is OK. A bit under my expectation given people said that this is the origin of timlo dish. I miss the wholesome taste of broth in timlo. However, the price is reasonable (IDR 19K) for complete dish (incl eggs, chicken lever, etc). The place is crowded during launch time, and its hot inside. So prepare to... More

The food served here is soup with variety of ingredients. The main ingredient is chicken innards and sosis solo (traditional local snack). The soup is light chicken stock. So tasty and fresh. It is served within minutes after we order. The place is an old building but overall is clean. But there is something bothering me. Across the street is... More

I think Timlo Sastro is the best you can get. If you ought to eat more you should order Timlo Komplit and you will find your bowl full of taste. You should not resist the temptation of Sosis Kuah. You shall find unique way to bill your order from the waiter. He did not use calculator but a chalk board

You need to be firm ... I mean when you queue you need to be someone who can speakout otherwise you will end up queuing hours. But thru all that, its worth it, my tip is you put a bit by bit the Kecap Sambal ...

Clear broth soup with chicken liver, eggs, sosis solo and rice. A must for any traveller. Place is not so clean. Maybe the owner should start thinking about upgrading the facilities now since more and more people want to come to this restaurant.

It's said that timlo is an acronim stands for: Tionghoa made in Solo. It's a great place for soup lovers. But perhaps it's not suitable for those who prefer to eat at clean & grand restaurants since it's just a small warung with tent. And be patient. The warung is always full.

This restaurant only serves Timlo, which is a traditional Solo dish, clear broth soup with sosis Solo (sausage Solo), liver and gizzard, and boiled egg cooked with sweet soy sauce. We always come here every time we go to Solo. The food is always consistent and good. The musicians play Javanese songs, very enjoyable to listen to while eating. I... More
