On the arrival, the staff will greet and escort you to a big layout of ready to eat kind of food. The selection is quite a lot. Most of it with spicy taste which make this restaurant quite popular. The taste is decent and the ambiance of the dining area quite unique with unique kind of decoration.

It's a reasonably good Javanese food in a traditional environment. The selection is quite good but service was a bit slow that night. Parking is also a bit of a problem.
