“found this place by accident”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

eating nearby in italian rest, my son suddenly decided he's fed up of pasta. So I go to this resto to buy Indonesian food and bought chicken or beef (i forgot) soup with rice. The food is good, not too much of msg. My son eat happily. Downside is the taste of the food is altered to westerners taste and so is the price.

Hi thank you for your review, first we want to say is that our foods are made of original Thai and Indonesian traditional recipe, not westernise.The only thing that is westernise is the spicyness of the food witch you can had yourself to your liking. It is quite funny that you say that we are expensive ( price towards the western side) well you eat at Italian venue who are more expensive then us. If you compare us with the Indonesian Warungs then you mhyt have to check your bill. At Warung Asia. At Warung Asia you eat a main course with rice and a fruit juice for around 50,000rp. to 60,000rp.Our foods use imported ingredient and we clean all foods with mineral water wich all had to the cost, so in all we are cheaper. Also we do not use MSG.Yours sincerely Herling Wowor.

“A GREAT FIND”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

we discovered this little gem when eating across the road at sang ria - owned by the same people. My husband was hesitant because it is tucked away and a little dark - but it was just brilliant. We ate there constantly - the rice paper rolls/fried spring rolls/green papaya salad were winners. It is cheap,clean and they do takeaway - By 5 pm onwards they were always packed -always a good sign - give it a try - you won't be dissapointed.

Sorry about for you to had to call the staff for your menu, but I can tell you it is not because you are a local.The warung (not 5 star restaurant) even empty needs a lot of work in preparation for the evening.So sometimes the staff is very busy even dow the warung is empty. About the food, most Indonesian dont like our food.First reason because Thai food is very perfumed with Thai basil and corriander. Second because we do not use MSG (monosodium clutamat) Most Indonesians today are so use to eat foods with this poison that they find healthy food with out it tasteless. It is sad to see that all local foods use so much MSG that most Indonesian are completly addicted to this cancerigeniouse poison. If you are use to eat with MSG, then ofcourse any foods would taste totaly plain has you wont get the MSG rush of a mouth full of salaiva after a meal has a sign of a good meal. I hope that one day you will try us again but keeping in mind this key factor.Thank you for your review has I have showd it to my staff and they promised to be more vigilant from now on.Yours sincerely Herling Wowor.
