We had brunch here for closing our workshop in Surabaya. We choose this restaurant because of its large and its location is close to the airport, so we can manage our time better before we leave the city. The food is good, price is reasonable and food ready quickly. Service also good.

Well lit, airy, and spacious. Nicely located along main road leading to Pasuruan and across a few budget hotels. Went at almost 9pm - place was not busy. Good food, good portion, good service, reasonable price and big plus for us, travellers, is the bakery corner which was a great alternative to those yet to appreciate rich, spicy food. Non-spicy...

If youre looking for indonesian food , maybe this one can be your alternative . They have a good taste , but lack of choice . They focus on chicken and fish only . Please add more menu and cleanlines need to improve

having lunch with colleague at this place was satisfied. Near with juanda airport, and easy access from surabaya, make this restaurant very strategis. Good price, good serve and services. Its good for you who wanna try a traditional food in Java.

Authentic and must-try resto in Surabaya. The one which pretty crowded is the one near the airport. Most of the visitors are eating with colleagues or clients, I guess. I also saw some foreign people here. Recommended: Tahu Tek and Rujak Cingur (taste it for the 1st time here and decide that I don't like this kind of food, but... More

Awesome place to eat. If you like modern Indonesian food, this is the place to go. I recommend the Pesmol and Nasi Goreng Jawa.

From there is a must to stop by Tempo Doeloe for my favorite deep fried Carp fish deep with their special sambal chilli. Is a must to try if you are visiting them for the first time. My next favorite is sambal kangkong vegetable. The... More

For those going to and coming from airport, this is your best bet. Located not too far from Juanda airport, a mere 10 minutes drive. Ample parking space and plenty of tables too but on peak hours, it can be a hassle to fight for a table though. They have also special smoking-lounge too The food is good, as what... More
