“Worth a visit if you are close by”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2012

Ive eaten at the location in Jakarta and both are very similar. If you like Soto ayam but want more flavor give this a try.

“Ikon Surabaya”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2012

Soto Ambengan/Cak Sadi asli sudah menjadi salah satu ikon kota Surabaya. A must try if you're from out of town. The original location is best otherwise the one across JW Marriot on Jl. Embong Malang is nice.

“Hmmmm...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

Not to special... but still it's a nice Soto...
That makes it special is the seasoning which is more daring, but also worth the price compared to other "Warung Soto"

“The Best Soto Ayam there is !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2011

A small stall started selling Soto Ayam (traditional,Indonesian-style Chicken Broth Soup) on Ambengan Road in Surabaya, that's how it got its name. Now Pak Sadi, the owner, opens many Soto Ambengan branches in major cities in Indonesia, including in Jakarta. The restaurant sells no ambiance, just simply focuses on the food. It offers other stuffs in the menu as well, but why bother choosing anything else? Soto Ambengan is the best Soto Ayam in Indonesia!
