Walking through the restaurant felt like going back in time. Every inch of the place is thoughtfully immersed in history, one of the hostesses even gave us a little tour of the restaurant, explaining the historical significance of the decor and different dining areas. The staff were extremely hospitable and the menu is so extensive that we’ll need quite a few more visits to try everything! We had a selection of starters and for mains tried nasi campur babah and petjel. The food were all well-presented and delicious, I am definitely looking forward to come back and try the nasi kare kepiting. Thank you Reggy for being a great host!

I went here on the recommendation of some friends and it was amazing. I would suggest going as a group so that you can try and share many dishes since there are so many choices.
The restaurant is in an older house and each room is decorated in different ways that are quite interesting and definitely not corporate cookie cutter design. The staff are friendly and gave us a tour of the different rooms, explaining the history behind them.
The food was excellent and definitely one of the best I have had anywhere.
Definitely will go back again.

Good food, pleasant service and the price still in average range.
And you can get a good spot for taking a picture

We've had dinner in this restaurant.
The furniture and decoration are ancient and this makes the place really authentic.
Service was very smart and the food really fine. The mix of different spices was just delicious. We spent an excellent moment with the food.
The only mistake happened when a group of twelve people (local family or close friends) arrived. From this moment on, all the staff forgot we were waiting for the dessert list. We then decided to leave without dessert...
Too bad !

We came as a group of 11 and I asked for a tour inside the restaurant, some of us are coming from different city. There are some interesting artifacts from colonial and peranqkan era. We were seated in the table that were used by President Megawati and US ambassador at that time.
The dinner is nice, with fancy presentation. Service is excellent. I think it is a good place to dine if your guest have interest in some history of Indonesia.
