“Delightful”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Tiny little sit down restaurant (also does take away), very plain inexpensive fitting (not counting the chandeliers, a nice touch). The food is chosen from a bay marie, not from a menu, but a great choice of vegetarian and meat curries, many of which I'd never heard of, as unfamiliar with Indonesian food. Inexpensive and wonderful. Also we noticed some local Territorian politicians in there on the day we went for lunch - if the local big wigs go as well, gotta be something to it!

“Terrible”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

After reading other Tripadvisor reviews my husband & I came for dinner. What a disappointment. The cafe is difficult to find. When we finally found it down an arcade off Cavevagh St, it was just an old cafe, few customers and the food served from a Bain-marie was terrible. Won't be going there again.

“A gem in Darwin city”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

A humble looking cafe at the end of an arcade along Cavanagh St serving authentic tasty Indonesian food served on hot rice. I am so glad to have discovered this place where the curries are authentic and have not been changed to suit the western palate. It cost $11 for a small plate (still quite generous servings) and $12 for large plate of rice with 3 choices from a selection of at least 10-12 dishes. The fish curry with okra and eggplant in a sambal sauce was absolutely delicious. For chilli addicts, there is even a free helping of a sambal which was mouth watering.
It is a place for a quick lunch or takeaway back to the office. The ladies serving at the cafe have been in the business for more than 20 years and have made Indonesian cuisine shine.
