“Try the Indian food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

Four of us in for dinner (2 adults, 2 kids), on a Friday night. Front bar was packed with ex-pats, smoking like chimneys. Unfortunately, the smoke drifts thru into the non-smoking restaurant at the back.
Other than that, the food was really quite good - the rogan josh, chicken tikka, chicken vindaloo and naan were yummy. The dhaal was a miss, as it was too runny. Drinks are expensive ($7.50 for half pint of Kilkenny).

“Busy Cafe, Good restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

This place is a typical, easy style, amsterdam brown cafe like place to hang out.
Many expats and if you are open for it always a place to chat.
Reasonable prices for Jakarta and a good choice for snacks and drinks.
The restaurant serves Indian and western food of a more then average quality.
The services are average to good.
And the place always can serve you with some extra.

“Good Food, Nice Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

If u like eastern food, try this one! It's a very recommended place and foods. My favorite was Beef Vindaloo and Chicken Tikka Masala, enjoyed them with naan. Kinda popular bread from India.
I like the foods so much, rich of traditional India's spices.
The atmosphere was also nice, homey, it makes u enjoyed to stay any longer :)

“Service is a joke”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

Went in a group of 8, was seated for dinner but then seemed like no one ever wanted to serve us even after asking several times. Most of the female staff just don't seem to care at all, and are even on the point of being outright rude at times. Better going to Murphy's just up the road, much friendlier staff and less of a dump.

I went here with my friend last saturday, it is my first time and it was a good place to go. The live music last week it's really good, everybody dancing follows what the band playing. The service was good too. Most of the guest are expat
