“Wake up!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

This is a canteen!! If you want a bad bite after getting stoned... All right go there.
Not romantic, not cozy, not particularly good, rather cold (place and food).
Ask to change rice for noddles, not possible!!
Ask for something, expect to be forgotten.
No credit card accepted.

“An authentic Indonesian Grub”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

I stopped by Sie-Joe for a quick lunch because I felt like having an Indonesian meal. Furthermore, they do Lontong, a traditional Malay dish. Being a half Javanese, I was pleasantly surprise with their Lontong Istimewa (Special). It was exactly like how my grandmother used to make it. It was very delicious. Amazing. Every single spoonful was a bliss. Why a four star? My friend had chicken satay and they put on soy sauce with the satays. Nobody puts soy sauce on satays.

“Delicious food and great service!”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We had a delicious meal here. The steak and venison was superb and they offer lots of side dishes to share (the salad is great). The sticky toffee pudding for dessert is a must. The staff are all so friendly and act as if they are genuinely happy to see you. Make a reservation as it gets very busy. Reserve online and they will reply very quickly.
