Good foods, coming for lunch with my friend. Ordered 'ayam bumbu rujak'; 'gulai kambing'; and two cendol (ice drink). My recommendation is to try 'ayam bumbu rujak' (rich in spices) and ice cendol (if you like a sweet drink), really recommended & the 'gulai kambing'...More

We found this Indonesian restaurant on TripAdvisor as it was close to our hostel. We had the rijsttafel that we wholeheartedly recommend: soup, spring rolls (starter), 6 different dishes (main) and several choices for dessert. Although the portions were impressive, we didn’t even take the...More

Our go-to place for genuine Indonesian food and rice tafel feasts. Food is very well prepared and super tasty. It's an adventure and really delicious. Nice space.

Dropped by for a dinner while on a business trip. Ordered the coconut rice with some side dishes and enjoyed the meal. A welcome change from the western cuisine and will certainly return when I am next in town.

Really enjoyed this. Best roti since street eating in Singapore. Rice plates really good value and plenty to eat. Tasty varied menu and good for vegetarians. Definitely going back.

We don't have access to Indonesian food at home and always seek it out. We really enjoyed our meal here. It compares to anywhere we've been including Amsterdam And we found it it to be an incredibly good value in the city. Go hungry!

Nice place, always seems to be busy. I heard there's not a lot of great Asian food in the city. But this place was alright! I wouldn't compare it to the Indonesian food back home, but most of the tastes were there. Try the nasi...More

Borobudur looks authentic, service is okay but the food lacks flavour. The veggie rice plate was a good recommendation from another TripAdvisor reviewer - two small Javanese fried bean cakes, a wedge of tofu in a mild sauce, a small mild vegetable curry and a...More
