I would suggest that you call for a reservation to avoid disappointment especially on weekends. We were lucky to reach the restaurant slightly early, and moments later people were queuing for their turn. The food was fantastic and sinfully delicious, I didn't even look at the menu but just referred to reviews here in TripAdvisor. True enough, don't miss the... More

Have been to Pondok Laguna many times. It always been a great test value and good fun at reasonable prices. Have entertained lots of overseas business visitors there and they all loved it. Try the gurame goreng, kankung and Tahu kipas. With some cold Bintang.

The food is seriously so yummy...very authentic and the price are very reasonable. Especially the Gurami goreng , Cumi Goreng with Kangkung belacan. For foreigner or tourist, please be prepared to sweat while eating those chili sauce and the ventilation is bad, stuffy and humid.

I can say that Podok Laguna is the best Sundanese seafood restaurant in Jakarta. Food that you should try is the fried gurame fish, fish head curry, fried tofu, and lots of chili. Nice atmosphere

We had lunch on a Sunday here. The restaurant was packed with people so we were directed to dine at their second floor. The second floor area lacked ambience, but it served its purpose. Since we were starving, we didn't give much thought to what we ordered. We had their tahu isi (very delicious), fried calamari ( average) , grilled... More

You must try the deep fried fish that goes so well with the sambal balachan. Their presentation of the fish is amazing! Eventhough the restaurant is big, Go there early if you have no reservation. It's rather packed especially during dinner time. Service is good too.

This resto serves a wide choice of Indonesian and Chinese dishes with the main focus on seafood. Not to be missed is the curry fish-head, one of the best I've had in Jakarta. The resto is huge but be prepared to queue at busy times. Prices are very reasonable.

There is no doubt that this is one of the best seafood restaurant in Jakarta. No question at all for its wonderful excellent taste. I love the fried calamari, their Padang style sauce, all good. But there is one drawback from this restaurant, everytime you come here without booking or you come slightly later that their business hour, you will... More
