Food was awesome. Very Palembangnese typical. I recommend you to try Pindang Udang, Pindang Patin, Sate Ikan, and Sambel Pete Udang. Very worth to try if you want to taste Palembang signature cuisine.

This is a nice restaurant with traditional Palembang style. The soup is great with the patin fish although it is a farm fish. But you also can order the prawn soup and ribs soup with hot sour sweet combination that is so tasty.

Nice spacious architecture with a courtyard pond. But the food (rice with dishes that aren't particularly fresh) leaves much to be desired. You can get better dishes from one of the roadside stalls.

I visited this place for dinner and this is one of the best place to go to for local cuisine. The fish was cooked Pindang style, which is sour and spicy with pineapple. I chose the Patin Fish, which has a soft texture to it. The place is also nice, with some part of the area can be reserved for... More

Taste just ok. Good location and place. Nice experience having dinner in the hut, but has mosquitoes. Price is not that cheap. Not all food in the menu available.
