“Dissapointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

McDonald's always been my favorite fast food since back in the 80's. Believe it or not, I'd eaten at McDonald's in 4 continents, more than 9 countries: UK, Germany, France, USA, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Indonesia, Australia, and Egypt. But eversince I live in Jakarta Indonesia now, I don't eat as much, pity. Why? First of, 1 of my favorite menu (fillet of fish) been SOLD OUT for more than 6 months now? Kept asking the manager, he replied "oh ya, will be here next month" or "we're ordering through our supplier" blah blah... which give me no other options to have the double cheese burger. I'm not a chicken person myself, they are focusing on their mass market of selling their fried chicken package with rice. The number 2, the taste of the beef is so different, from all the McDonald's I had, I can tell you they're not using an American beef. (local beef is more likely) The number 3, drink mostly Coke, be sure to ask the server whether the (CO) pressurized is new? Otherwise drinking COke, feels like drinking Coke syrup without the feel of the soda. The number 3, selection menu too little. No 1/4 pounder, no apple/lemon pie, very limited menu option. The only acceptable menu for me is the french fries. Unless if you're a freid chicken lovers, you're gonna love this place. Will I come back? No, not until they have what they promised me with that fillet.

“Cheeseburger is best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Everytime I dine in McD, I always order cheeseburger. The fried chicken is also good. The other favorite according to me is the spaghetti. It is cheap and really worth for snacking

Perhaps its the competition or just plain tired, that the food is wayyyy blown by its competitors. Never suspect burger wars is so fierce

“Hmm...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

For some reasons, the quality of Mc Donald's in Indonesia is just so-so.
I'm not sure if it's the beef is different, and also the french fries seem "skinnier" than what I'm used to.
Otherwise it's a consistently clean fast-food restaurant.
