Really limited menu and not really middle eastern. The only meat they have is goat and it doesn't look fresh.

The restaurant is not so clean, old fashioned, a slum type of eatery. The dishes focusses on satay, goat-curry, and some modified Middle Eastern rice dishes. The dishes are not exemplary. Service is sometimes confusing. Had tried better satays in Malang.

After reading good reviews we decided to try this place - we love African goat curry so thought a Middle Eastern/ Indonesian take on it would be great. It was a fair walk there from where we stayed and.. It wasn't worth it. The tables hadn't been cleaned and the toothpicks looked used. We were either ignored or stared at,... More

One of the best places if you're looking for Arabian cuisine though the place's not quite good if you want to talk and spend time with friends/family. Lamb satay, martabak, fried rice, yumm! Taking away is an okay option, you can enjoy good food at home.

this old restaurant has specialties in goat cuisine, one of the best sate kambing in town, be sure to pick the soya sauce for the sate kambing, not the peanut sauce, but their nasi goreng kambing is not recommended for me

Small and slum interior. Near center town. Good taste of goat satay, soup, etc, with reasonable price.

I was born and raised in Malang, this is one of the place that i always want to come back whenever i am visiting with family or friends. the location is pretty central, the arab quarters is served by the GA minibus (yellow line). It's a family run restaurant, the owner will be sitting behind the counter counting money, that's... More

The goat kebabs and goat curry was unimpressive. Hardly a friendly bunch either. Everything's stale and in need of a rigorous cleaning.
