“A place to return”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

If looking for a place in Yogyakarta, far away from the crowd, in a truly amazing environment and on top of it great food, don't search anymore just book a table in Kesuma. You'd better do it fast, because you won't be the only one willing to have the same experience.
We were lucky as we just tried our luck and followed the navigation without calling them. There was a free gazebo for us, overlooking the garden, which already is an attraction. The service was nice, you can chill out here, music in the background just perfect. The Javanese style joglo house gives a style to the place but the owners took care of the last small details.
The Tom Yam soup and the Ayam Opor are highly recommended meals, must try once there. Can't recall the name of the dessert but also delicious.
All in all I am sure if I get the chance to visit Yogya again, I definitely will call to reserve.
Wish you all the best and many satisfied guests. I am sure it won;t be a task,

“A must try in Yogyakarta”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

FOOD
Fusion of western - traditional javanese food. The various dishes on the menu, the chicken meat is roasted using the same ingredients, the difference is the gravy. Gravy is very tasty. Sambal is spicy and very good for Asians. We tried 4 different dishes, all are very tasty.

AMBIENCE
Interior and exterior deco is beautiful. I personally prefer to dine outdoor as it has the ambience. Photography here in this restaurant is simply amazing.

LOCATION
It's 15 mins from Malioboro Mall by private car, 25mins by becak. It's located off the main road but with a private car or taxi or becak, you can reach there.

HYGIENE
- Clean and tidy overall.
- 2 comments. Mosquito (under table). Insects (small cockroaches) are found and seen in the borobudur minitature deco on the table.

RETURN AGAIN
Yes, definitely returning again. Highly recommended as the food is good and a very unique and beautiful interior/exterior design.

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

You must get the chicken dish... I forget what it's called but it's fried in coconut oil and is amazing.

The service was a bit slow even though it was a quiet night. But the staff were all very nice.
