Description: Monggo restaurant offering a contemporary Indonesian cuisine, with a great approach on traditional taste and flavor. Example menu duck betutu, a confit duck leg and grilled with Balinese betutu sauce; Babi kecap, 6 hours slow roasted pork belly with crispy skin and kecap manis emulsion. A different experience on Indonesian cuisine.

Food in general is fusion however some works, some don't. We had degustation so we got to try different menu items. Soft shell crab was good. Chicken soup was too salty, even dipped with side of roti, it was still too salty. Other food was average and bland.

Service was rather slow as the owner/chef busy cooking in the kitchen. Front of house was not managed to full potential.
Price was average. I don't think we will be back anytime soon.

The hotel is located in a small shooping area in Mount lawley, which provides ample parking space. Reservations were expertly handled, and the decor was innovative, a combination of modern artworks, batiks on dining chairs and rural Indonesian classics such as puppets and kerosine stoves/lamps.
We ordered a seven-course special menu, and each course was elegantly presented, with adequate explanation of constituents, and made to order recipes to account for varying preferences for chilli. We left very satisfied!

We had the degustation which consisted of seven excellent courses. The service was great and unobtrusive. Prices are quite reasonable particularly when compared to a lot of the other places which have sprung up on the Beaufort St strip.

highly reccomended

Recently went on my second visit with 3 vouchers for 6 people for the 7 course degustation. What can I say...everything was excellent.... Totally enjoyed by all. I will be returning with a very large group in the next couple of weeks. I am also impressed at the large selection of gluten free and vegetarian options...thank you!!!

Ducked into this rather new restaurant before a show at the Astor and what a fantastic surprise. The food is incredibly good. Having had Indonesian in both Bali and Perth this is up there with the best I've had. The Nasi Goreng and Beef Rendang are stand outs but even the duck and salt and pepper squid are worth a mention. Friendly staff and BYO top it off as a must visit venue! Oh and did I mention $120 for five people!
