“Very good”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

The food was really good and was pretty authentic in general. I lived in Indonesia for some time and really enjoyed the street food there. When I saw an Indonesian restaurant, I was expecting the food to be presented as it would be in Indonesia. I was dissapointed when my Siomay Bandung did not look like the way I remembered it, but no fret, the taste was excellent.

“Started off wondering”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

When we walked into the restaurant at nearly 7 p.m., we wondered if we had made a mistake. The restaurant was completely empty of customers. In fact, we were there at least 10 minutes before any other customers walked in. But by the time we left, another 30-35 customers had entered. And, if they are like us, they will not be disappointed. The service was quite friendly and informative, even after they became busy. And the food was extremely plentiful and well prepared. The wife and I walked out of there completely satisfied for less than $25.

“Excellent food, very friendly”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We came into this restaurant late at night, (20 mins before closing), hungry and tired after finally getting settled into our hotel. Although it was so late, I felt we got the prime time service, which being tired and hungry, we really appreciated. The servers were very pleasant, and even, politely laughed at our bad jokes, and, even at this hour, the food was very good. We had never eaten at an Indonesian restaurant before (which has much to do with why we chose this one), and took some time with the menu. Even at this time, the servers were very pleasant and helpful. The food was fresh and delicious. We were very pleased with our experience.

Enjoyable meal in an unpretentious setting. Very reasonably priced. I had a noodle dish with chicken and vegetables that I kept eating way past the point that I was full. Very reasonably priced.
