Down a quaint pretty residential alley, the restaurant is clean and bright. They do one thing here and they do it very well. The Soto Ayam is probably the best we've had in Indonesia. Clean and clear chicken flavor, it was simple, nourishing and delicious. Recommended! The staff spoke no English but were super friendly. Be ready to choose wing... More

From rags to richest, this soto cak To is considered success story from just a hawker on street of Undaan Wetan to reside in a place. Must try this as the only menu is soto a yam could be served with rice or lontong.

My aunts told me that my old favourite Soto Ayam Ambengan was not as good as it used to be. They redirected me to this place and I was a bit skeptical about it at first.

don't expect a good atmosphere, nor nice seat, nor good scenery, nor dress code expect to have a nice soto taste, chicken soup + glass noodle + shredded chicken + steam rice for sure, one of the best in town who love to have a street food / hawker type, you have to give it a try, no regret

Used to eat here as a kid. Great Soto or Yellow Soup. The old Cak To was better when they were on the streets. A little dissapointed now.

one of the best soto ayam in town, tasty and quite thick soto broth, i was surprised by the price when I loved it how they generously gave the chicken and other stuffs in my bowl. it was a pleasant visit not too crowded, and fast service.

If people say this place is dirty, that's probably because (like me, initially) they don't know about the new establishment just a few steps down the alley next to the street stall :-)
