Located in North Surabaya, even if a bit discarted, it is still easy to be found. Delucious menu. More than that, Sampoerna Museum is just next to. It is interesting to learn the history of the entreprenurship, with its famous Dji Sam Soe cigarette.

Actually this museum is kind of thematics museum, and the company pick cigarette for the theme. So only adults (17+) can entry the museum, under 17 cant. You can entry the museum for FREE! The location of the museum is kind of quite difficult to reach and located in kind of slum area of surabaya city but its ok. They have a cafe also inside the museum complex and a bus for a city tour! The facilities are good enough, the air conditioner inside the building works very well, the toilets are clean, they also provide mushalla for praying and etc, but they have no tour guide inside the museum:( hopefully they can hire some tour guides very soon!

We came there in a big group and blocked like half of the restaurant. Food Quality is just OK, not special, Crews kind of need more spirit and enthusiast on serving people. Service bit slow and no manager that attend check the food availability. If you are not that hungry, just skip the restaurant and go directly to the Museum.

After a visit to the museum it's a good idea to check out the restaurant as well which, like the museum, is full of character. At the same time, however, we found it to lack ambience. The set-up is like any other warung and although beer was served, we saw no evidence of cocktails as we had read somewhere. The staff seemed quite uninterested and in the end we just decided to finish our beers and go for dinner somewhere else. All in all a bit disappointing.
