First visit since plant based switch. We were a little hesitant but so glad we went. The crispy seitan and rendang with jackfruit were delicious. The seitan especially (which used to be crispy duck) is still crispy and the sauce is peanut, chilies and citrus among others, I think. One wants to lick the plate. The flavors and spices are delicious. I’ve never had plant based kroepeck before but these were awesome.

This is somewhere we usually take visitors because the flavors are so unique. We will continue.

The owners have maintained the high quality and delicious food, while keeping to their own principles. And it’s an excellent effort. I hope they continue with success.

Amazing plant-based Indonesian food. Yes it's all vegan! :) The food is very tasty and you can see it's prepared with loads of love as the plates look very nice as well. Don't forget to order the banana cake topped with chocolate sauce for desert. It's heaven!!!
Book your table in advance as this little jewel is becoming very popular. En guete! :)

Walking in, you are welcomed very warmly. We have eaten here several times and the food is amazing. Succulent, tasty flavours; genuine Indonesian food. You don't need to be vegan to eat here. It's just delicious. Every dish is prepared carefully and the presentation is beautiful. We started with soup; superb. Then we had the crispy seitan - yummy. And the Ayam. There is also a good selection of wines. We highly recommend an evening here.

Just visited this restaurant yesterday and it was so great. The crunchy seitan tasted way much better (not only from a conscious point of view speaking ;-)) that any Peking duck I had before in my life. Also the other dishes were amazing. Great use of herbs and spices! Would definitely recommend that place!

Its a hidden treasure when it comes to restaurants. They’re serving delicious and authentic vegetarian Indonesian Cuisine with a huge variety or Mains, also the starters and deserts are very tempting.

The restaurant maintains good ‘food hygiene’ is super neat.

I walked into this place without a reservation & it came to my surprise as it was fully booked, the hostess just took 5 seconds and I already the table to myself, the staff is super friendly and the service was quick. I’m a huge critic specially when it comes to Food hygiene and staff, I’m glad they are super nice.

It’s a must try.. I’m definitely coming here back again.

Keep up the goooooood .

Thanks and Cheers!
