Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food is worth it, as well as the coffee. The place is artistic, decorated with some paintings. I think it will be perfect by repair the cover of the floor and make it more eyecatchy from the street.

The first vegetarian restaurant around Borobudur temple. Cames with minimalism and artistic concept together with rice fields makes the experience truly in a good vibe. The owner himself is vegetarian.

I ate here the best nasi goreng in Indonesia. My friend had their noodle soup and for dessert their brownie cake with ice cream - delicious! I really recommend this place if you are in Borobudur and feeling hungry.

We all enjoyed our meal here. I am vegetarian and it was the best vegetable fried rice I have had in Indonesia. Vegan’s can request no egg. My boyfriend had the regular fried rice and agreed too that it was the best he had this...trip My Indonesian friend from Padang said her noodles were delicious and explained that the place is simple home food and they do it perfectly. Our driver also enjoyed his fried rice with mozzarella as did my mother (except she requested not spicy) Coffee great Service good View so very peaceful-you eat overlooking a rice field Price-VERY reasonable!More

I have been curious to check this cafe out since last night because their signage says they have an art gallery. So after lunch today we went here for cold drinks. My husband got pineapple juice and I had iced java tea. I lived my...drink but my husband said his was just ordinary. The cafe overlooks a ricefield. It looked dry but the view was still refreshing nevertheless. Food and drink price is very affordable. There were a lot of guests in the afternoon, all enjoying the breeze from the open air dining. The art work displayed add to the charm of the cafe.More

Visited the place in the evening. Nice place, friendly staff, good food, but for dinner I would choose another place: there is hardly any choice and some portions (spaghetti) are very small.

visited for breakfast after borobudur sunrise, but only noodles and pancakes are available (rice dishes not ready yet). both the noodle soup and banana pancake with cheese are yummy! the pancakes are a little on the small side though. the small cafe also faces a...rice field, which adds brownie points to the ambiance. staff is nice and friendly, and speaks decent English. not digging their coffee though, it's a little on the sour side, which i do not appreciate.More

I think the reviews of good food are quite old. We stopped by for dinner and they only had snack/breakfast things. We didn’t eat there. Might try the coffee next time.

I stayed in this amazing home with my friend Hadi (whom I also met in Indonesia, an artist, no joke, people are good there). I am from USA myself and it was my first solo! trip to Indonesia and I cannot be more grateful for...the trip and for the owner of this house. In terms of location - it's next to Saraswati boutique hotel, same location, different price, way cheaper. The inside - way better as it's uniquely artsy, quiet and authentic... The house is full of pictures and art, has a view of peaceful rice fields, frogs sounds :), and great hosts. In terms of hosts, the people are angels...The owner has a school for "special" kids that he supports on his own funds because the government does not support. He has his own reasons for this but I was simply touched by his kindness so much when I learnt about this. The food there in their family restaurant is soooo good. One of the best I tried in the entire country, presentation, peace and atmosphere are above and beyond. I would recommend this house without any hesitation and wishing the most kindest things to people who leave there. Your Buddha picture is in my bedroom, guys, and I smile each time I see it. Lots of love, InnaMore

We had visited Alea Coffee shop after Borobudur sunrise. It is a shop that serving tasty foods and most importantly it is not far from Borobudur temple. You can have a good start of the day with nice breakfast after early sunrise. We had ordered...Noodle soup , crab ramen , fried noodle, Latte and cuppocino which all are satisfied. The portion are big at affordable price.More
