Hi there. I was went to this cafe SHALOM at 18 november 2021 around 7pm sydney unfortunately,it was teribble services ever i ever had. Firstly, i was have an ordered chicken rujak with the lady name FENNY She is a MANAGER at the cafe. My...friend is witnesses i was said it’s a chicken rujak as like we have told her when ordering and it’s was not duck rujak suddenly she laughed at me at the kitchen infront of me said its not what actuall I ordered. Then it was can’t be canceling or change it and tht price was not same though.Then, she did a bad action with shout infront of all the customer and make a bad words to me. I have been asking her where is it her leader nor manager but she didn’t answering me neither. 1 of them came appear to me then ask for apologies and told me she is their are manager. That’s was embracing when i heard about that. I thought it was wrong when you have that habit as a manager do a bad action with your customer. Not have an apology to your customers. Never said customer is always right but customer’s always have right to depend their self if bad things hppen. Hopefully! This notes will be public AND YOUR OWNER WILL SORT IT and please JENNY IF YOU READ this.. you NOT SUPPOSED TO BE A MANAGER CAUSE YOU’RE NOT WORTHY PLUS YOUR SERVICES WAS TOO BAD!! Please improve your food as well. The price was DAMN EXPENSIVE though. Not fresh and stinky everything! Tq.More

My son and I came to this restaurant after wandering around Chinatown. As walk-ins we were really pleased with the food. We had the beef ribs with bambbu Bali sauce and chicken satay with satay sauce. Both were delicious. Also, they serve everything with a...chicken broth which was really tasty. We would come back and probably will soon.More

I love their original beef ribs! It's tender and not so fatty. The chilli sauce is crazy spicy though, you've been warned :)

The fried duck was dry from the cooking - they basically cooked all the duck out of it and it tasted about the same as chicken. The rendang was tender and tasty though, as was the eggplant dish. Still just average Indonesian but they charge...a lot more than most of the other Indo places.More

If you are an Asean and looking for that spiciness, this is the place to go. The food is tasteful and unpretentious. Quite a variety to choose from. They are always busy during lunch so you may have to wait a while for your order.

Great diner at Shalom restaurant. Cheap prices, good food. Not really vegetarian friendly because all the main courses are with meat. You can choose the Gado Gado or snacks like tofu or tempe..!

A different cuisine. A mix of Indonesian and Malaysian. A lot of locals dine in so the we guessed the food must be good and we were not wrong.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
