This is not your basic deep-fried buffet. Each item is freshly cooked and delicious. There are many options including: vegetarian, gluten-free, seafood, and meats, all with a wide variety of wonderful sauces. Each dish is clearly labeled. This is a favorite place for lunch with friends. It gets very busy on weekends. Staff is always interested in what dishes are... More

Stopped in today for the first time after hearing about their lunch buffet. I'm always game to try something new and was quite curious about the Indonesian/Maylasian cuisine. I started with a cup of my new favorite coffee drink, Kopi Si - delicious! The food on the buffet was wonderful, with a wide variety of authentic dishes to choose from.... More

The variety and quality of the food is incredible. Most of the items are Indonesian but since the chef also lived in Malaysia and Japan, there is a wide choice to delight any discerning palate. There is a wide selection of fresh fruits, including tropical exotics. Soups, appetizers, occasionally sushi. A wide buffet selection at lunch with vegan, vegetarian and... More

It was our first time there; went with a group of 4 friends & everyone was very pleased with their meal. The flavors were amazing & the value was excellent as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

This review is based on my lunch buffet experience. Went with a group of five on a weekday; none of us had been here before. Not clear from the website, but apparently you cannot order off the menu at lunch during the week, must take the buffet? Anyway, glad that was what we were told, because it allowed us to... More

Was very pleased and surprised with this place. Was a new cusine experience for me. Went for supper, it was pretty quiet. The waitress was a bit timid at first but very helpful in explaining some of the menu items. Our table got the Balinese Chicken and the Chicken Satay dinners and Pastels for appetizers. Pastels were so good, kind... More

It's been several years since I last visited Jakarta and Jogjakarta, and when traveling, I've fruitlessly searched for a restaurant like this one. Fresh food, exquisite spices (toned down at your request), and incredible service. I'd raved about Indonesian food to my daughter for years, and jumped at the chance to give her a tasted of my great memories. It... More

This restaurant looks unassuming from the outside, but you will be pleasantly surprised at the amazing buffet Java Warung has to offer! There were so many varieties of meats, sides, vegetables, noodles, etc... And an awesome dessert array. What I think I enjoyed the most was just how big of a selection they offer. It was like having four or... More

Authentic Indonesian dining in a casual atmosphere. Lunch buffet, dinner and all day Sunday is menu only. A perfect place for a night out with friends, business dinner, lunch from the buffet or take-out. Our casual dining area is designed to add to the dining experience by bringing a small sampling of Indonesian culture and art.
