“Best Tounge Steak Ever”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Don't eat anything else if you are a first timer. Order the Tounge steak immediately and do try the cookies they sell in big jars, they are very tasty as well.

“Cookies are great, but not the food”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Order 3 Nasi Goreng Special and 2 Spagetty. All taste plain, far from delicious and also quite pricey. The ice cream taste ordinary. But the cookies are great.
The ambience is cool, very old fashion. They keep it original

“Waiting long for food and even more longer to pay”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

While it is not uncommon to wait longer when the Oen is full, it was a horrifying wait around the cashier table to pay the bill in obviously also colonial Oen style: There were no electronic cashing machines. With one boss/madam who seems the only one classified to receive the money.
We waited 25 minutes at the cashier.

And with many stressful servants who do not dare to voice criticism otherwise this will be a ticket to job termination.

“Travel back in time”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Don't look for a modern-looking building. Look for an old-appearing building. But, don't get fooled by its appearance.
It's absolutely clean and fantastic inside.
Decoration is great, well maintained from the old days.
I personally love its ice cream. Taste great, and it can ruin your diet program.
A should visit restaurant when you visit Semarang.
