Small place, Room is clean enough, Toilet is clean enough, delicious food, especially for ''rendang'', and the taste is simillar with the origine food from Padang Indonesia. Good for the people who want to taste Indonesian food

First of all, we were over charged; paid more than our bill ever should have been. Secondly, we called the restaurant before we came to be sure they accepted credit cards and they confirmed that they do; however, once it came time to pay, our server told us they only accept cash. The food was average by Indonesian standards. Some... More

If you are familiar with Indonesian Authentic food, Upi Jaya is the best so far for their Beef Rendang. It takes more than 4 hours to cook Authentic West Sumatran "rendang" and they need to put more than 15 Indonesian ingredients to make them. So they are not cheap This is the place if you want to try very delicious... More

Great taste and offer varieties of indonesian cuisine. The place is in queens, a bit far from metro station but worth trying. They offer gado2, rendang, soto, siomay, and other genuine indonesian dishes.would love to come back here again.

The food was good but the portion was small. Waitress was rude by asking tip even before it was left. How rude is that when you demand a tip for bad service.

Great Indonesian food in the middle of Queens, NY. Location is not so pleasant but for those Indonesian food lovers will have a good experience with this restaurant. Server/Owner are not too friendly and restaurant need much much improvement but the 'ayam bakar' make the visit worth it. No Credit Card is a down side.....

Even the food is ok.....the service at Upi Jaya is terrible!!!!!!! You have to wait forever to get your food on the table.....the waitress was not friendly at all....... As other people say, they did not explain why the bill was so high, and in top of that, she asked for a 20% tip...... If the owner of this restaurant... More

The waitress was rude, did not explain the bill, and expected 20% tip. I am generally a large tipper but when someone who was rude and not courteous said "I am keeping the change for tip", it ticked me off. The check was for $84, the money given was $100, and the waitress boldly said "I am keeping the change... More

Please set your mind correctly before visiting : this is a really small place. No fancy décor. It is actually very similar to most eateries you find in Indonesia unless you go to the restaurants in hotels or malls. The menu is extensive, make sure you try several of them, because Indonesian cuisine is so broad in taste that you... More

As someone who grow up with Indonesian food and eat padang food wherever I travel in Indonesia, certainly the food in Upi Jaya is not up to par. The service was bad and expects high tip. Location is okay as it is only few blocks away from 64th station on 7 train. The server keep talking to herself aloud. But... More
