I liked it so much I went back twice! Located not too far from Jl. Braga and the Museum Asia Africa, totally worth seeking out. Herry the owner... More

With a warm rice and a glass of iced tea will make my lunch just perfect. They also served beef soto. Besides the Soto, they also have 'bacem tempe' (bacem =sweet spice, using brown sugar,... More

i read the reviewer from tripadvisor, came here and not amused. came here for lunch, find out the soto or sugary broth was too sweet. for me, it's more like sugary chicken broth. the rice was not nice, very soft and over watery. for soto or chicken broth soup, the rice must be separable from grain to grain, in condition...

I remember the first time I went to Soto Semarang Pak Hadi was in 2012. And I've been going to there so many times now! The "soto" (which is a traditional foods in Indonesia) tastes awesome! Very affordable! And the owner, Herry, is very kind and friendly. If you visit Bandung, you must try this one! Satisfaction guaranteed!
