If you want to eat here for lunch, be sure to come super early (11 am). If you come late, you can run out of dishes. The rendang is delicious. The spices is really soaked into the tender meat. The ayam goreng (fried chicken) is extra extra crispy albeit small. I can understand how some people can eat up to... More

Came here a few years ago. Slight improvement and they have air conditioning!!! They have also moved to a larger shop not too far away from the old one.The food is still to die for and the ayam goreng and sambal petai with prawns are still top class!! Must go in jakarta.

I have been going to Pondok Djaja at least once a month. The food is Padang style, with the best fried chicken in town. My second favourite food here is the baked chicken (ayam panggang) with curry sauce. If you are more adventurous, then should definitely try the curry otak (brain). If you only eat chicken thigh, make sure you... More

I have visited this place since I was a child growing up in Jakarta. I recently came back and found the food to be just as good. The fried chicken is a must and so is the rendang. The variety of food is always good. Although it is a bit pricey especially for the locals, if you are visiting from... More

I've known this restaurant for many years as my father's office was not far from this restaurant and I usually passed the restaurant when I went back home from my university. I like the menu here since it meets my taste expectation - a kind of united nation of padang taste. Just this morning my best buddy from Singapore just... More

I was so excited to come to this place and turned down by the taste and price. First of all i was ordering the famous fried chicken. First glance it's like a house cooking type but healthier with no skin, salty and crispy (15.0000 rupiahs per piece) And then come the rest of the items like Nangka veggies (jackfruit) 20.000...
