“Delicious old school food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

If you're linging for a vintage / old school meal, cookies n pastries and you're happen to be in Semarang. This place is the perfect place! Ox tongue steak and coffee ice cream are a must try!

“Tasty ice cream and dessert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

Toko oen is a famous restaurant in semarang city. The interior makes you go back to old javanese era. The service is fast and so many dessert to choose. I taste the ice cream which very good. The main course is bistik lidah, the taste is good but it can be better if it was fried longer.
I taste the poffertjes also, the taste was very soft, sweet and warm.
Overall, i recommend this place to taste a tasty dessert.

“Not dutch enough”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

I was excited imagining that I could have some of food I miss so much but apparently that was not as it is known. I don't like the ontbijtkoek, almost tasteless and no spices at all and the ice cream was too sweet. he service was bad, I don't understand how could a well known old restaurants have a slow flow of service and unfriendly. I was trying to order the some cookies at the pastry station and was cut off by the waitress by saying ' wait, I am busy'. Not coming here again, NO MORE

“Best poffertjes in town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

located in old building, make Toko Oen looks like a heritage restaurant. you have to try their traditional ice cream when you're visiting this old restaurant. even its taste isn't as delicious as modern ice cream, but i appreciate the history behind their old recipe. my favorite menu is poffertjes, soft, sweet, yummy!

the price is average, maybe it's very cheap for international standard. the staffs are very friendly and pleasant.
