Bandung has great food, with some of the best Pad Thai I've ever had. They also have a "happy hour" of sorts, during which they offer some great dishes for $5 if you sit in the bar or on the outside patio. The only thing keeping it from five stars is the slow service. I have been there many times and the service can be very good. However, they often seem understaffed, even during non-peak times, which has led to some long waits. But the food is worth it. Highly recommended.

I've been living in Madison for a year and this restaurant has always been my first choice for a tasty feast. My favorite is beef mango curry, which is sweet with a touch of spiciness. Definitely a hidden gem.

I had sate, gulai kambing (coconut lamb curry) and sambal goreng tempe (fried tofu in spicy sauce). Sate was ok as was the lamb but the tofu really was without merit. Nothing was spiced to the extent I like (OK, I like a lot of spiciness and heat, but even so this was tepid).

We've eaten here several times and it is always excellent. While in a small strip mall, the inside is very nice with a comfortable, warm dining rooms. The servers are all very nice, although things can slow down a bit at times. We always go the vegetarian route, although on my last visit I had a mahi mahi dish that was excellent. The portion of fish was quite large and tender, not a bit overcooked. The sauce was excellent with good flavors and the right amount of heat.

As parents of a 2 year od, sometimes eating out is not in the cards. Bandung is a great choice for carry out. If you order online you get a pretty substantial discount.
