The menu is very large, food is very good and cheap. The waitresses are very attentive and friendly.

It is BYO. The decor is nothing special, bur certainly well worth going - a very good choice for an Indonesian restaurant!

We love this restaurant, the food is terrific, the price is right too. We usually go there every Thursday eveing with a bunch of people, that way you can try loads of srummy dishes.
Reading a few other reviews you will note that the food is consistently good. Most people who go there will become regulars.
One of my favourites is the Bone Marrow. yum also, try the egg plant with butter soya, the KFC chicken and the beef randang. All excellent. And the best thing YOU CAN BYO.

I've been coming here for years. The quality and servings have never changed and you always have a great meal and leave satisfied.
I would highly recommend the Chicken satay skewers and the Nasi Rames. Bagus sekali!

We love this little Indonesian restaurant, and so do our friends. Have been there numerous times and the food is always very good and great value. The service is prompt and friendly and it's BYO. Indonesian cabbies can't be wrong.

An Indonesian restaurant that has been around for a long time. It holds up with consistently good quality dishes with very good value meals and of course it is BYO. There is a hotel bottle shop a few metres away.
We have been there with 2 or 3 and also groups up to 15. The groups are fun as one can get to taste a wider range of dishes.
If you do not want all courses delivered together you need to explain careful how you want to receive them. We like to eat banquet style and finish a dish before the next is delivered.
We often start with otak-otak and one of the satays.
Chicken is offered many ways, our preferred dish is the ayam panggang, a grilled chicken with onions and chili. The Semur Kepiting Soka (soft shelled crab) are excellent as are the Udang Goreng Cabe (prawns). Don’t miss the rendang as it is excellent at Java.
Whilst eggplant is one of my favourite vegetable Java does a dry fried eggplant that is delicious. I can never remember which is which with the semur terong and terong belado. Ask for the one not in a sauce.
You will be surprise how small the bill is.
