Only in the situation that you are so hungry that you must eat, a visit to this restaurant is recommendable. It is not a cosy place, but a factory eatery, more like a canteen type of restaurant. The food quality is probably ok, but presented quite poor. I would not visit this joint for a great meal.

Penyet dishes originated from this one. It's either a piece of chicken or beef etc with sambal with degrees of spicyness. Bu Kris always has consistent quality. And reasonable prices. I noticed they also have Iga Penyet, but not so good.

For those who like Indonesian food, this restaurant offers so many choices. It's specialty are "penyet". From chicken, meatballs etc. Heavens for those who like chilli. You can pick from medium to seriously hot grade chilli. Fast service, need improvement on the aircondition though.

We go here after our flight landing from jakarta. The space is not too big, even there's a line for lunch. But, they serve quite fast, so we could eat by the time. We order ayam penyet, tempe penyet and sayur asam. Tasty enough.

Experiencing new one is not always the right decision. Sticking in the old sometime works well. As far as I acknowledge about Ayam Penyet (Fried Chicken with Traditional Chili Condiment), I will point Depot Bu Kris. The hot taste that you will miss, and each i visit Surabaya i will come to the shop in Kayun Road. Today May 18th-2016,... More
