“SOOO expensive, WHY????”
Review of Bakmi Orpa

Reviewed May 30, 2014

Still don't understand WHY the price is SO expensive? Would anybody like to explain? Which means I don't see any specialty in the noodles that makes it sooo unreasonably expensive. Of course they don't care about my comments since they have all the rich customers. People who go there, well, I want to also ask: WHY?????

Bakmi Orpa is notoriously expensive, yet it's always full on weekends. Their noodle is soft and a bit oily (don't even ask what kind of oil). Price wise, it's about 1.5 of your average ruko style noodle. Come during peak hour and you'll see the different class of their customers.

Come earlier than peak hour and you'll get the best food and service. I usually order their noodle, tahu bakso and bakso goreng and ice coffee.

Noodle lovers will want to try at least once, enjoy the noodle and refrain yourself from thinking of the bill haha

My uncle took me here for lunch. The restaurant is Sparsely decorated but clean and air conditioned.

The noodles and wonton soup are ok but nothing special.

we got the surprise of the day when we got the bill... Rp 300,000.00 for 4 people! I have eaten other fancier place with lower price tag! Not recommended

Bakmi Orpa has been around in Jakarta for many years and it is one of the best chinese noodles I have ever had the opportunity to taste...including Singapore and Hong Kong. It is definitely a hidden jewel in the Kota area of Jakarta. It is frequented mostly on the weekends and the seating can be a bit of a challenge as the layout is more of a family oriented table setting, but it is well worth the visit. Don't consider take away as it is best enjoyed in the restaurant.

Don't expect to find it cheap - since it is highly in demand, the family charges comparatively higher prices, but you won't be disappointed!
