A lovely lunch at Ruby's cafe. We both had the chicken wrap and a smoothie - both were absolutely delicious and full of flavour. Amazing price with no service charged. We are already planning to come back for dinner!!

Finally a place where everything is fresh, just made at the last minute... Salads and wraps are great, fruit juice also. The english boss will give you great tips, he's been there 20 years ago! For dinner its pretty busy, be patient

Crumbs this was the best meal I had in Indonesia. The owner was a delightful man and his staff were also 10/10. I had the beef randang and my pal had the green curry. We almost cried it was so fab. People were queueing up outside and I am not surprised I would have waiting a day for a table!

I'm not usually one for writing reviews, but I couldn't resist after having a meal here, the starters are brilliant and the main was to die for I had the green curry, I would go as far to say it's one of the best currys I've had in Indonesia and I've been traveling around for over three week now, this...
