“Just ok, come here more for the ambience”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

This is a famous restaurant in the palace (Kraton) grounds. Food is pretty good, although I found their soups on the salty side. Nice place to have a meal in an unusual environment, but the food is really nothing to shout about.

“Royal Menu”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

I like the restaurant. They serve food from the palace's favorite. From the former Sultans until the current.

Located inside the palace complex, nice setting, open air style, so dont expect a cooling aircon.

Its my second visit here and still good.

“Mediocre location, Mediocre food”
Reviewed 28 January 2012

Expecting something more from this over rated restaurant. The location/place was ok, good service, but the food was not worth the trip and the money. A place I would not recommend.

“DELICIOOOUUSSS!!!”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

The venue is just so-so, but the food.. EXCEPTIONAL!! my recommendation: the Lidah (tongue) and the duck with kedongdong (duck cooked with kedongdong). I could fly all the way to Yogya just to eat these dishes!

“Bebek Goreng!”
Reviewed 18 August 2011

There weren't anyone in the restaurant when we were there. Perhaps it was 2pm and it was the Ramadhan month. Plenty of staff to serve us. Yummy food. Really happy with a clean and tidy to wash our hands before and after the meal. Relatively cheap and decent price for amazing food. Really huge area for big families or kids to run around. Breezy.
