We love Indonesian food so were excited to try this restaurant despite mixed reviews. The room is pleasant and we were seated promptly. The starter was the chicken/fish dumplings with peanut sauce. It was very good and arrived shortly after ordering. It was downhill from there. The main courses (beef and a rice dish) were just ok - one entrée... More

The dishes offered are pretty refined, and actually cheap for the quality ($10 to $14). If you're a big eater order rice as a side and you won't ruined yourself.

Nice and cosy restaurant interior but sadly the food was very disappointing and the waiter was grumpy. I don't mind if the food is good but I've honestly made better beef rendang at home... This was chewy, sour and missing the toasted coconut that adds depth and balance. The fried banana desert that followed was doughy and soggy, like it... More

Like some other people, we landed at this restaurant because it was close. Also like other people, not impressed with the decor and the service (by a male I took to be the owner or manager) was quick and business-like but not at all warm. We arrived early for dinner--about 5:30--when there were still some empty tables, but by the... More

The food was delicious and different - I have not seen too many other Indonesian restaurants in the US. Well-marked and tasty veg/vegan options. They do have rijsttafel service, though it works out more expensive than just ordering some dishes to share at the table. I got the "vegetarian rice plate", which was a similar type of sampler with rice,... More

Food is good and price is reasonable. However, it was understaffed. Need to wait during peak dinner time.

I cannot even describe how great this place is. Ideally located. Like, really. There is no better place in the city. Immediately fell in love with it. The products. Oh. My. God. The products!

My boyfriend has been here several times, including a couple times with a friend who's very picky about good Indian food, and said we just had to go while we were in town. As his assistant and I had never had Indonesian before, we ordered the Rijsttafel (A Complete Indonesian Rice Table Dinner) for 3 and an order of roti... More
