We loved the peanut sauce and recommend ordering that sauce with fried plantains as a savory dessert. They are known as "Bananas Silvia", Absolutely delicious. We spend much more for less at other places. This atmosphere is casual, but the food is top notch!

The meals are smaller then before and the taste is less. it is still a nice small restaurant with just a few tables. The price are not high for the quality, but they are for the amount of food.

shockingly bad food. Behind the counter was a microwave and all the food came out of the fridge and got a 3 minute microwave treatment before being served. For 4 adults we paid $130!!! We have had Indonesian food in many places and this was simply horrible.
