One of the oldest authentic Sundanese West Java restaurant in Bandung, the foods are quite good, try nasi timbel or hot steamed rice as their signature dish (available selection white or red rice) complete with various dishes as salted fish, fried tofu or tahu and fried chicken with salads with sambal.

We love this restaurant. Really tasteful. Amazing spices. Recommend when u love Indonesian food. Our judgement about the food: Five stars. What we didn't like: when we arrived we were served a plate with fish in bamboo leaves. We thought this was a starter from the house. When the bill came they charged us with this starter. We think the... More

Well. There is always biases when it come to food. I have visited this resto since 20 years ago. And I think it us still the best Sundanese food in Bandung. Plus it us conveniently located right after the pasteur toll gate when you enter the city. Still highly recommended!

Went there with some friends only because we didn't want to turn back to the city. The food is still good, the service also very nice and friendly. But I think the facilities required to be refreshed, especially the toilet.

I wonder why people gave good review to this place. Came here on early January 2015 with my family around 20 person. We ate inside at lunch time. First impression was, the place is so dark, it has poor lighting. The furnitures are old and tired. Very slow service, and the employees seems to confused who's ordered first and last.... More

Kabayan is a popular character from Sundanese culture... the food is what sundanese food should taste like...tried the usual dishes of ikan gurame, ayam kampoeng bakar kecap, lalapan, tahu/ tempe, kurupuk aci (if stale just ask to replace at no charge)...always go for the sambel, its part of the dining experience..unfortunately for simple food like this, price is bit steep...but...

We came here for a quick lunch before heading back to Jakarta. The location is perfect for those who want to have meals before entering the toll way to Jakarta. The food is ok, service is good. The place is a bit dark and untidy, but still clean.

Thank Ed-Henry
