We tried the saté special on Saturday night for 25ang. The special consists of 6 pieces of saté with no vegetables or rice and therefore not much variety. Also the Staff is slow (had to wait 20 minutes) and brought out a side dish we...More

We loved the peanut sauce and recommend ordering that sauce with fried plantains as a savory dessert. They are known as "Bananas Silvia", Absolutely delicious. We spend much more for less at other places. This atmosphere is casual, but the food is top notch!

The meals are smaller then before and the taste is less. it is still a nice small restaurant with just a few tables. The price are not high for the quality, but they are for the amount of food.

For lunch I choose Sambal. I ate sate with french fries and peanut sauce. Fresh lemon juice this was delicious. So soon I shall return.

Located in a strip mall area. Food was ok but staff was friendly and attentive. Bit expensive for what we got and orders were all mixed up. The do have a vegetarian option though. Pick your own meat and rice/noodles for the wok fried option.

After overspending at a number of tourist places, Sambal was a pleasant surprise. Very good appetizer platter and good main courses. Right next door to a gelato shop. I'd go back.

Not at all disappointed by the food they serve, it's strict Indonesian but more a mix of indonesian, Thai and Surinamese. Perfect ! Overall again a nice experience, and recommendable to people who like to try and are interested in different cultures and food! Ruby,...More

Unfortunately Rubi is not there anymore. This makes a huge difference and not for the good. No the place is not the same as it used to . I used to eat there at least once a month, not anymore

shockingly bad food. Behind the counter was a microwave and all the food came out of the fridge and got a 3 minute microwave treatment before being served. For 4 adults we paid $130!!! We have had Indonesian food in many places and this was simply horrible.
