Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 January 2016

We discovered this restaurant by chance as it was only a few doors from where we were staying in Jakarta (Alila hotel). What a find! It serves a mix of padang and Sundanese food - all very delicious and reasonably priced. Our favourite dishes were the sayur nangka (jackfruit curry), gulai cincang kambing (mutton curry) and perkedel (Sundanese style croquettes. All in all, we had 7 dishes, rice and drinks for a grand total of Rp150,000. The only dessert option seemed to be durian icecream so we decided not to have dessert.

For those not familiar with Padang style restaurants, the way it works is that you go up the front and point to any dishes you would like to try and they bring them all to the table for you and you pay for what you eat.

I'm not sure if this restaurant is undergoing a name change but they do have dual signage at present and told us that their name is Istana Ayam Pop.

While our staying at Redtop Hotel, went for walk nearby and then stopped at this restaurant.
Seems nice with many dishes and nice decorations. It has A/C.
We asked for the menu, and instead of that, they brought us 10 plates of different foods. Oh my God, sorry sir... I didn't order yet. Again followed by other 10 different plates and then 5 more. Well, I can't see the table. It's only plates over plates. Other tables were the same. We called the manager, and he said, the policy of this restaurant is: they bring you everything. Eat whatever you want and we'll charge you. Others no charge. At least, we got an idea.
After food, we asked for cocktail juice, and instead they brought us watermelon to eat, followed by opened coconut with fruits and ice cream in.
It is a nice experience. Reasonable price.
You should try it.............
