“Good, but Way Overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

We saw the good reviews and wanted to give this place a try. We were told that we needed to eat quickly because of a reservation coming, so we got served pretty quickly. The fried rice was alright, and the shrimp was very good. The thing is, prices are pretty ridiculous in this place. The tab came to over 120 francs, way more than at any other Indonesian restaurant we've ever been to. There are better options out there.

“Great Indonesian food in cozy atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

There are not that many high-end Asian restaurants in Zurich. Dapur is one of them and according to their website the only Indonesian one. The restaurant is usually busy and quite small, thus I recommend a reservation. During the summer they have garden seating in the back. The menu offers about 8-10 different Indonesian specialties. We have tried the Rendang, Ayam rica-rica and Sayur lodeh (vegeterian). All were great. Since it is Indonesian it is great to go a couple of people and share the dishes. Dapur is located just by Oerlikon Train Station.

The food was really good, standard Zurich prices (which is to say pretty expensive), but the staff were great and the food was good.

“Wonderful Experience and Delicious Rice Table”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

We splurged for the last night of our European trip to get the Rice Table at this restaurant and we were thrilled we did. It was absolutely delicious, and our children were eating foods they have never tried before with gusto and enthusiasm. Dish after dish came from the kitchen, and they were great with accommodating our request for description of spice level of each dish. The duck, fish, and eggplant were particularly delicious, though we did not receive a dish we didn't enjoy. We sat outside in their back garden, and it was beautiful and comfortable. The servers were helpful and knowledgeable. This is highly recommended restaurant!

“Excellent food, super friendly owners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

Our friend recommended this restaurant and what a good surprise! The owners welcomed us warmly. We were able to seat outside in a nicely decorated garden. The food is really tasty and fresh. The Chef came to our table and explained the different spices used for our dishes. I recommend the duck if you love lemongrass.
The wine list is not extended but the selection is great.
Not many street parking places around but there's a paid covered parking right across the street.
