We were a little early for the Saturday night bbq, but we're still able to sample the chicken, beef and pork Sate. Also tried the Indonesian food and it was good, but ask for the hot pepper sauce and it's then great. Owner was more...More

Local place in a square with tables set up and three restaurants right around it and a few others nearby. In the "suburbs" so definitely not on the usual tourist locations. The food seems to be authentic Indonesian and is fine.

Great food and ambiance! Service with a smile, You will leave a happier person for sure, just watch out with the amount of Sambal you put in your food. You will feel it the next day!

We returned to "Sambal" because we enjoyed the food tremendously. We ordered a vegetarian meal, and asked the cook to prepare it to her taste and especially spicy. We were not disappointed, it ended up with a multi taste of Thailand, Surinam and Indonesian. Since...More

I didn't particularly enjoy the food as I thought it was mediocre at best and the service is terribly slow. It appears to be a family restaurant and the teens serving us seemed like they'd rather be out with friends than working. However, the outdoor...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.
