This was our first experience of an Indonesian restaurant and we went for the meat buffet. The service was great and the food very tasty. It was a great opportunity to try many different dishes and each one was full of flavour. Thanks for a memorable evening!

Living and having travelled Asia - I was delighted to have a dinner here after all that burger and pies. Imagine my surprise when the dishes turned out really good and authentic. I will recommend the meat and fish platter which has a variety of dishes with refills of fragrant white rice. Best part - they serve Asian desserts (which... More

The reviews really are true! This restaurant is amazing. The decor is quaint. The staff are lovely. The food is very very good. Although the rijsttafel is what makes this establishment famous we were not hungry enough for a banquet each (since you have to order two at minimum). Instead we opted for the fish curry and beef rendang. These... More

We had the $36 set menu. All 14 of us and everyone was in agreement the food was DELICIOUS Thank You Indonesian Chef and Staff. Think we might have been a bit loud as were enjoying ourselves hugely. Hope we didn't disturb the other guests! Will certainly go again and would highly recommend Alan and Sally

The restaurant is a 20 minute walk from the centre, but worth it. We chose the Set menu at $36 each. Fish, pork, beef and veges. There is a good selection of wine at very reasonable prices. The staff are friendly.

NO PORK! Thank you for your review. You have indeed ordered the Supreme Rijsttafel, with a mix of Vegetable, Seafood (fish and prawn) and Meat (chicken, beef and lamb) dishes but we definitely DO NOT prepare any PORK meat in our restaurant!

Menu had a wide range of food from traditional indonesian - including a tapas style meal for a taste of Indonesia. The host is Dutch whose husband and chef are Indonesian. this restaurant caters for small groups to larger groups. the menu caters for those who like meat, fish and vegetarian meals.
