Description: KESUMA Restaurant, previously housed in a Limasan (a wooden Javanese House), shown on Tripadvisor through several Guests' pictures ... waits for the move of his house. It does not mean that KR is closed ... Bu Lilies offers to welcome you, in the comfort and the familiarity of a typical house (50m far from the previous location) for discovering "KESUMA - makan di Rumah" (eating at home), where Guests can enjoy her local cuisine. Lunch & Dinner are only available for reservations, one day before by telephone.

Delicious food for the reasonable price. Cozy interior. The personality of the customer oriented owner is an additional value. General remark: "The best Indonesian Kitchen I have ever experienced".

Get your hotel to make a reservation, the place only has 9 tables and they fill up quickly.
This place is run by a lovely couple, one French guy and his Indonesian wife, who is the chef. She cooks all the food from scratch to order, which is very hard with indonesian food. Expect a wait for each course. Food as good as Kesuma's needs time. Fill the space with the Lilie's Suggestion juice - a juice cocktail made from whatever is freshest that day. We got some sort of magical coconut pineapple thing.
Kesuma's is the best in yogya. Cannot be missed. Might be a bit too fancy for kids though.

Pengalaman makan malam di sini sangat menakjubkan. Restoran kecil yang terletak di gang di Jl. Sartono ini mengutamakan kualitas, sehingga pesanan anda baru akan dimasak setelah kita mengkonfirmasikan pesanan tersebut. Waktu yang dibuat untuk menunggu pesanan kita akan kita habiskan untuk berbincang-bincang dengan pasangan pemilik restoran ini, yang ramah dan selalu siap dengan segala pertanyaan anda, dan beberapa ibu yang membantu memasak di dapur, karena mereka membuka jendela dapur untuk dapat melihat siapa saja yang masuk ke restoran ini. It's a small yet classy restaurant, and I would be back for more.

You want to be out of the crowd and move yourself back in the past this is the place to be. Enjoy the real fresh home cooked food in a romantic traditional ambiance. Book your table in time since we noticed a few disappointed people turning around due to the few tables available.

We had a lovely meal here and found it to be the nicest restaurant during our stay in jogya.
The food was homecooked and full of flavour. Even though the tuna, wasn't on the menu, I was offered barracuda instead, which was absolutely delicious. The spring rolls were amazing, I wish I could get some nearly as good back in London. My wife's food was full of lemongrass and chilli flavour, even though when asked if it had chilli, she was told no. I would definitely recommend the banana in coconut sauce, which was delicious and different from anything else I've eaten.
overall, this is a beautiful restaurant with lots of atmosphere and delicious food, especially if you like strong flavours
