I eat here reglularly. I love the place, the food is excellent and the owners are very friendly. My only issue is that the Nasi Rames Krakatoa is sooooo excellent I find it very difficult to try the rest of the menu. It's like everything i would choose to eat ever on a single plate.

Eat here often, never disappointed. Good service and the best Indonesian I've had in England. Do - have a rendang - don't take the Rica Rica lightly

I had to write a review for this little restaurant, it's turned my boring solo business stay around. I ordered a takeaway so I could work at my hotel and the gentleman behind the bar (who also took my order) was so lovely, welcoming and helpful. The online menu specified what dishes were GF so that was very easy. I order the Gado-gado salad and it was delicious, although not too sure how healthy due to the peanut sauce being so amazing I ate the entire pot they gave me! The dark chocolate and almond cake was immense! Probably the best GF chocolate cake I have ever had, if you're not GF you won't be able to tell! I returned the following week and ordered exactly the same (boring I know but I had been craving it ever since) and it was just as great!

I will definitely be returning next time I am in York!

Had 3 courses. The food was fresh , hot, tasty. Nicely spiced and not at all oily or greasy like Indian restaurants. Loads of vegetarian choices. A really interesting menu with dishes i have never seen before which i love. The staff were very friendly and happy to adjust heat of sauces etc if required. The music was authentic and very relaxing. I would most definately go back. Its a bit tucked away from the main stretch of restaurants etc but only 5 mins from the centre. Go you'll love it!!
