Perfect portions. Nice selection of meats & veggies in dishes we ordered. You could taste the great pride that is placed into the prep of dishes. Not the typical asian... More

Was looking for food like we have in the Netherlands. They came close but not close enough. Big portions but they were out of kroepoek which was annoying.

Chippie Cafe is great! We've been going for years to see Mario and he never disappoints! We had a table for 13 people and everyone was raving about how delicious everything was. There is a little bit of a twist on classic dishes. Will come back again as always!

I'm a big fan of Indonesian food. We visited at lunchtime and the owner very graciously helped us select an assortment of dishes, but the food was disappointing in flavor, presentation, and price. The décor is unattractive Chinese. There were many Chinese and Japanese dishes on the menu. Maybe they were better.

Stopped by here a couple of times during our trip and always enjoyed the food. A little pricier than other places but well worth it when we were in Philipsburg at dinner time.
