“Good Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

Food was well executed and prepared with good ingredients. They came well presented and was delicious and is one of those restaurant that take their cooking seriously and careful in their quality control. The food may had done to suit foreigner taste bud and slightly lack authenticity for me. Service was prompt and professional. This place is good for business meal or entertaining foreign guest for its reliability, good service, good food, cleanliness and nice setting.

“Smells Good, Tastes Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

I like the smell of this place. Mixture between traditional fragrance and, good food! My unforgettable dishes was One Meter Satay in which we were served around 32 sticks of satay ranging from chicken, fish, beef, and tongue! It was wonderful and delicious.

Also, there was a great mix of traditional-jazz-keroncong band and they were awesome!

“Quite good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013 via mobile

Went there for business dinner, the surrounding reflects the Javanese setting. Ordered satay and fish patties which are good.
Main dishes ordered were fried beancurd, gado-gado, grilled gurame fish, rendang fish which is good and the fried squid .
Will go back again .

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

We were invited here by local friend.
We were really surprised by the quality here. We wished we could have known this place before.
Menu with variety of selection. The service was quick and efficient. The staff was very friendly and attentive.
We ordered crispy beef, grilled duck and Balinese grilled chicken. We loved them. Tasty and delightful.
However it was rather pricey compared to other restaurant according to Indonesia standards.
Anyway, the quality and atmosphere could make it up.
I do recommend

“Bit Pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013 via mobile

An excellent ambient - Javanese style restaurant with pretty ornament all over the place.

The taste is fair. We ordered aneka sate, sate lidah, sop iga asam pedas, dendeng kering. My favourite was the sup iga asam pedas.

The price was quite high especially when you compared to other Indonesian restaurant. However, the quantity and the food portion were relatively large.

I recommend harum manis for anyone want to try a fine dining of Indonesian food.
