“Maybe a good place for big city person”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

I think this kind of restaurant is suit for big city person who never live in a small village, so they can try the traditional eating experience that they never get in their town.
People say it's a popular restaurant in Bandung, with old Sundanesse menu and old eating ambience. As a person who live in a small town for years, I can find this kind of experience in my Grandma's house. She has the same cutlery and menu. So personally, I dont really like this place. But if you want to feel the traditional eating ambience you could try this restaurant.
The place is not comfy at all. There's no "smoking and non-smoking area", so everyone could smoke everywhere. Lil bit dirty and the food isn't really delicious. But you can find sundanesse signature dish like oncom and sundanesse signature drink like es goyobod.

“Sundanese commoners' food and eating experience”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

First of all, if you expect to have a properly sit in restaurant or fine dining, look elsewhere. This place is as nice a place for commoners to eat as it gets. It's rustic, simple and gives you a genuine traditional, Sundanese experience of the past. They don't even call themselves restaurant. They call themselves "Rumah Makan" or simply "Eating Place".
It's for Backpackers or tourists who want to experience the real Sundanese village food and eating style. The plates and mugs are made of tin. You pick what you want to eat (like school canteen style), and you sit on a very simple. old-style wooden bench.
The cost is VERY cheap. This is definitely a hidden gym.

“Not worth your time and money!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

I came here because my family told me it was a famous 'old style' restaurant. When I was there it was very crowded and dingy. Toilet was very dirty and wet and there was no toilet paper.
I couldn't enjoy eating because everyone was smoking so the whole restaurant was smoky.
I could find all type of Sundanese traditional foods but to my surprise, even when you grab one spoon of dish they will charge you for the whole portion. So I was charged a ridiculous amount because I filled my plate with different kind of dishes in tiny portions.
I was really taken aback when I was at the register. I don't mind paying more for a five star experience but their food is so so, you could get the same food cheaper at "wartegs" in Bandung.
I feel like I'm being ripped off... especially because the restaurant was dirty and also the toilets. You would expect that they would invest more in their restaurant seeing how much they're making. Go to surrounding restaurants/cafe instead! Believe me.
