“Pak Sadi is the best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

Great Soto as always, and I like the extra bumbu that you put on top of the soto, Please ask for the rice separate from the soup....And always come around 2-3 oclocks....much quite

“Worth a visit if you are close by”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

Ive eaten at the location in Jakarta and both are very similar. If you like Soto ayam but want more flavor give this a try.

“Ikon Surabaya”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

Soto Ambengan/Cak Sadi asli sudah menjadi salah satu ikon kota Surabaya. A must try if you're from out of town. The original location is best otherwise the one across JW Marriot on Jl. Embong Malang is nice.

“Hmmmm...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

Not to special... but still it's a nice Soto...
That makes it special is the seasoning which is more daring, but also worth the price compared to other "Warung Soto"
