“Amazing local food at local prices ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I ate at this place twice during our stay in Yogya. The dishes are less than half the price of other restaurants in the same street (20,000-25,000Rp instead of 50,000) and the food is delicious, cooked fresh by the owner.

We tried the gado gado (veggies in peanut sauce), mie goreng (noodles) and nasi goreng (rice) and the serving sizes are really good too. Definitely recommend lunch or dinner at this place!

“Great food and cute atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

We had our best meal in Yogyakarta here. Really good gado-gado and soto ayam. I'd definitely go back. It's laid back with good service and quirky art on the walls.

“So nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Only stopped by for a few beers. I was just sitting on my own and the guy running the bar just sat down with me for a bit for a chat.
Really friendly place and pretty good beer.

“Big portion.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

They don't have big range of menu but they knew how to treat guests with the portion. We ordered Gado-gado (fresh selection of vegetables) and Mie Goreng, all of them taste good with big portion. Definitely will come back.

“Great food and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014 via mobile

Great home made Indonesian food and home of one of the members of the famous Jogja ska band "the shaggy dogs". I had a soar throat and the owner made a special ginger tea for me!
