“Oasis in Banda Aceh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2011

Never any single pizza restaurant in Banda Aceh before the tsunami. That massive disaster made people work together, build back better, and stop the long history of local conflict that made no economic growth in Aceh. After tsunami, Aceh is now open to international world. If you crave for pizza in Banda Aceh, this is one of the best choice you can have. There are also upscale cafe and Italian restaurant, but Pizza Hut is more affordable while the place/interior is so much more sophisticated compare to the Pizza Hut in the United States.

“Do not get the Pizza!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2011

The Pizza Hut in Banda Aceh is a classic example of how American francishes do not monitor their overseas restaurants. The pizza at Pizza Hut is extremely inconsistent in quality and taste. Lately, it has been terrible. The dough is like bread, it is undercooked, not enough cheese and not enought toppings. It is obvious that the cooking staff is not trained. This training is absolutely necesary because pizza is obviously not an Indonesian dish.
Because of the dropping dollar against the rupiah, this restaurant is more expensive than the American Pizza Hut for similar dishes.
I recommend this restaurant only out of necessity. There are no other oizza places in Banda Aceh. I would recommend the lasagna or fucilli rather than the pizza. The spaghetti is bland but not bad. You could order Indonesian dishes, but why would you come to Pizza Hut for that?
