Food is quite good but portion is small and price is quite high. it is a famous Indonesian restaurant and quite crowded when we were there. The interior environment is good which make me feel quite comfortable.

Went there for dinner with friends. Ambience good and cosy. Food average. Price reasonable. Very convenient walking distance from Bugis mrt. Nearby vicinity very alive in the night. Many tourist hanging around other food areas.

Visited a couple of times. Food consistently good. Tahu Telor, beef rendang, steam fish in lime sauce, sambas Kang Kong, stuffed chicken wing, durian with glutinous rice, chendol - all turned out well. Do make reservations for the 2nd floor.

Have patronised Bumbu for many years, since the days they had buffet. The fold quality has never wavered. You will get good quality food at affordable prices for about $20 per pax. The decor is old school and you become transported to an old part...More

Away from the busy part of Kampong Glam, lies the townhouse setting of Bumbu. Our first sight was a rather uninspiring (visually) menu. However once inside the setting was excellent. Took Tahu Telor, pandan chicken and a few other dishes. A 4 out of 5...More

It's often hard to go past the classic Asian dishes. Since arriving in Singapore, I have been looking forward to a plate of Beef Redang. At Bumbu I enjoyed a brilliant version of the dish: beef shin cooked for six hours to a special recipe...More
