Great food and even better host who made us feel very welcome. Loved it all and would certainly dine here again!

We had an awesome dinner at this place. It's there for 30 years already and still the best restaurant in town. Definitely order the Rijsttafel Supreme, it's soooo worth it!! The owners and staff are very, very friendly as well.

I read some bad reviews about this place on Tripadvisor. About this place serving food with no flavor. I REALLY don't get that! This place is all about flavors! A must visit while in Napier!

You must be kidding to come over from Australia to dine with us...But since the customer is always right than I have to believe you. But on a serious note, we feel very special with your feedback about restaurant.

We had eaten here twice before over the years- but not for a long time. As much as I enjoyed the food both times I remembered the restaurant being a bit dark and creepy so was just a teeny bit apprehensive about going again when we were in Napier for the long weekend but are so glad we did! Everything about this place is the best! The decor was so pleasantly clean and fresh!! (but still authentic) , the atmosphere was perfect, the service and friendliness of the staff was fantastic, and the food ......well it was out of this world!! I can highly recommend this place and secretly wish it was closer to my home! :-)

As time goes by...
For over three years the restaurant is under new ownership and we de-cluttered the interior and lightened it up.
But it is with even more great pleasure to read your thoughts about our service and food.
Thanks for your time to write your review.

We dinned at the Indonesian Restaurant Napier on the second last night of a fabulous 2 weeks in the North Island of New Zealand. The décor was reminiscent of our travels in Indonesia, the food authentic and delicious and the host made us feel welcome and special. We chatted with people on a nearby table who ended up local restaurateurs, who praised the Indonesia and invited us to dine at the Mission restaurant the following night - we almost felt like locals. We will return to eat there again on future stays.

It's with great pleasure to read that you had such a fabulous two weeks traveling New Zealand. And we feel priviliged that we were on the itinerary. It's clear you enjoyed yourself and felt a home. Whenever back in Napier we'd love to see you again.
