My brother said the place is really crowded during lunch time; today we went there around 10.30am plus heavy rain so plenty of seat. Soto Betawi is a rich soto from coconut milk and you can top up with lots of meats but mostly beef organs & meat. We believe that how much you pay is how many meats you... More

Located in the south of Jakarta, the place is not too big. Soto Betawi best I've ever tried, the price is still affordable ..

The original Betawi Soto where locals go to satisfy their gastronomic delights. Original taste, affordable. No air con and fancy tables. Traditional style. Do nit come during lunch time (12.00). Come earlier or later if you do not want to wait. One of the best of Jakarta soto.

Usually i went here monthly but sometimes the soto was ran out so it's better you come in "brunch" tine to avoid it. Soto is good but IMHO the good taste is degrading compared to few years back

This place is located on a small road in the back of Pasaraya Manggarai.. the place is also small but you know they have history just by taking the first bite. Personally, i love the Soto Betawi with "Paru" and meat (usually i ordered 1,5 to 2 portions), if you don't know what that is, then you should try it..

I live at the northern part of Jakarta, so it's quite far for me to reach this Soto Betawi place. Since I am a soto Betawi lovers, distance is not a matter. From November to todate, I already visited 2 times, so you could imagine how crazy I am? Soto Betawi is typical dishes orginated from Jakarta, The word "Betawi"... More

Oh My God! Best soto betawi in town with really really affordable price! 5 USD per bowl (jumbo size). Don't be fooled with its humble appearance from outside. Indonesian who's who visits this place! Plus, it doesn't burn your pocket with the cost!
