The food here was wonderful and generous in potions. Service a bit scattered but friendly. Located on a very busy street with many eateries but was one of the more unusual offerings on that block. Adequate beer and wine selection.

Average quality, risk-free (and therefor a bit bland) Indonesian food. Westernized, it's tasty for fussy eaters who want to feel exotic. A very good place to go when you're with a (large) group of people, nice atmosphere, house wine was so-so. The spekkoek could be...More
