I love to have meal in this restaurant! The atmosphere is really traditional, Keraton Yogyakarta way. The food also has traditional javanese menu and they are Sultan favorite, so we have the same menu like Sultan had daily. Yeay! Feels like members of the Royals for a little bit, hehe..
Located in part of Keraton (I don't which side exactly), you can come here by becak and sometimes they offer you that they'll wait for you until your dinner/lunch is over. And don't forget to eat tongue dish and grilled banana dessert, they are the winner! :D

we just lunch at Bale Raos today and try some Sultans's favorite menus such as Nasi Traditional Set, Soup Timlo, and Beer Java (non alcoholic drink). Also desserts like banana melted cake and banana cream stick. With Keraton Palace ambience and sound of birds, definetely like a royal lunch experience.

If you need to find a cozy dinner atmosphere, this is one of the option. Here, you can have a warm conversation with your friend.
Literally warm because there's no air con, but it doesnt make you sweat because it has fan and open space.


Located in Keraton Jogjakarta environment, its a bit far from main street but dont worry, Becak Rider know the place.

The food and the price both good. I ordered Bestik DJawa, kind of grilled minced beef served with sauce, mashed potato and some vegetables.
For drink I choose Bir Djawa, non alcohol drink, a mixed if traditional spices served cold. It has unique taste and fresh.

Never missed the desser, Tapak Kucing, a press banana fried with sugar and cinnamon on it. Perfect.

All the menu that I ordered are Sultan's favourite pick.

Enjoy!

We like almost all food here, they are exotic and typical javanese meals since this restaurant is serving the favorite food and drinks of the royal families. The food serve in this restaurant can't be found in many places and the price is also very cheap!
