My wife and I along with 3 others attended 18/01, I was embarrassed 😩 & apologised for poor choice of restaurant. We expected better. No flavour in the meals, poor selection as they are mostly the same but with change of heat. Dirty tables, no...customer service, dirty plastic cups, you have to get up to ask for anything bcs they are not at tentative. This is below standard for Shalom

You have to order and pay for your food at the counter, and select your own knives and forks and the water is self served. But the price is good and the food genuine Indonesian. The menu is extensive for a fast food place. We...ordered fry chicken, gadogado, rendang beef and lamb satay. They are all excellent with spicy hot sauce for
dipping. It is extremely good value for lunch. But the wait was a bit long as there was only on chef at the back.More
My wife and I had an early lunch here on Friday 7th December 2018. The menus were better laid out in book-form since our last visit, and the air-conditioning was cool and comfortable. For starters, we had Tahu Gejrot (fried tofu in a sweet and...spicy vinegar sauce). Though a tad chilli-hot, the blend of flavours was very nice.
My main meal was Ayam Goreng Penyet (fried chicken with a hot and sour sauce). The chicken was tender and the sauce was more sour than hot. The dish came with a plate of rice. I preferred eating it with the sambal terasi (hot shrimp paste in oil) which was provided on the table in a metal receptacle. The sambal terasi was especially authentic and quite splendid!
My wife’s main meal was Soto Betawi with a plate of rice. The Soto Betawi is a Jakarta-style beef soup. It tasted very much like the Malay sup kambing (mutton soup). Generally, this was quite palatable except for the few pieces of tripe (stomach) that was mixed with the meat.
Our desserts were Es Kelapa Muda (Iced coconut water with rose syrup, with pieces of coconut flesh), and Es Campur Durian (a mixture of durian, black grass jelly, arenga palm seeds, agar-agar jelly, and avocado covered over with finely-shaved ice and doused with syrup). Both of these were refreshing, although were not used to having coconut water mixed with rose syrup.
Overall, we enjoyed the different flavours of these dishes, and we would certainly go back to try some of the other interesting Indonesian dishes on their menu. The two ladies who served us were pleasant and gracious. The hospitality was typically Indonesian.More
This place offers really nice and authentic Indonesian food. The service was very friendly which I really appreciate when dining out. It's a small restaurant probably with more outside seating than indoor seating but if you like Indonesian food, this is a nice place for...it.More
The food is ok. I like this place for dishes/snacks which can't be obtained easily in Brisbane. Things like Pempek, Rissole, Arem-arem, Pastel goreng, etc. As they don't make those food themselves, the quality can vary from time to time, depend on the suppliers. But...the ones they make themselves are consistent.More
The Balinese steak was amazing. It tasted so authentic to the south East Asian flavours and so was their Mee abang abang. The portions was more than enough and so so good. I am a loyal customer now. - A SG reviewer.
