“A little piece of Java in hectic Jakarta”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

I always like the atmosphere of this place, its not a fancy posh place, a kind of place that once you step your foot in, you will feel at home

The architecture and ambience is very unique, for a while i thought I'm not in jakarta, kinda feel like hanging out in the corner of Jogjakarta.

The food was ok, home made taste, but for you who cant accept spicy food, please ask suggestion which food is suitable for you. I ordered a menu they called 'ayam gerandong' they said its medium level of spiciness but for me it was shockingly Hot..

The most memorable thing i got from this place is the keroncong music performance, where else in Jakarta you can hear this kind of traditional music?

In general, I love it! And will comeback real soon

“Authentic Javanese Restaurant”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Found this place by a reference of my friend and it was just an awesome and authentic Javanese restaurant. I really like the tempe mendoan, it is the best so far I ever had! A nice place have dinner with family as well as to hang out with friends. The indoor-outdoor concept with many trees is truly unique in the heart of the city.

“Once a week.. AT LEAST!”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Spicy yes, but they have other menus for you with non-spicy tongues! Like the mendoan for example. My favorite place to eat, sometimes for three nights in a row. The menu fits me very well, and its strategic location is easy to approach. Their new mie godok menu make me comes back even more often.
