When you see the venue, at glance this doesn't look like fine dining restaurant, rather old dull house. But meat selections were very good, eventhough some were not available. Parking space are very narrow. While parking outside is not that safe area. One of the...very pricey fine dine - steak in the city. But very good and prompt service by the staff. Owner is very knowledgeable.More

The overall atmosphere was great and quiet, the staffs are friendly, well trained in courteous and attentive service. Make me feel like home. Tried the 8-course dinner at Citrus Lee, the food was great, 6 course of appetisers (cherry tomatoes, corn soup with poached egg,...wagyu quick bite, escargot, risotto with ham & mango sorbet), main course (Angus beef striploin) and dessert (strawberry cheesecake). All the servings were nice and with the right portion. Love the escargot! The beef was juicy and perfectly cooked as per ordered (medium rare!!!) Unfortunately, this round no chance to try their Omakase menu as it required min 2 persons. Will definitely visit again if I have a chance to visit Surabaya :)More

Every plate was a work of art and tasty. I wish the portions though were a bit larger for the price point here. The owner/chef was quite personable and really enjoyed pleasing his customers. The food was delicious and the set menues are the way...to go.More

I had planned for this place and came there by taxi. On entering, We were repelled by the smell of urinal cakes. We tried the table as offered but the smell was all around and intensive. The place was nicely arranged and I realize there...are positive recommendations, however, the personnel seemed to know about the problem very well when we mentioned why we were leaving without having anything. Sorry, this is not about the food - but I cannot recommend any food under those conditionsMore

This restaurant blew me away. The menu is basically set with appetisers x 5 (you get each one), main of your choice and dessert (choice of 4-5). The presentation is amazing. You would expect this quality from some of the best restaurants around the world....The US prime rib eye which we shared was cooked to perfection and had a fantastic jus to compliment it. I have had some amazing steaks around the world including what I thought was the best I could find in Argentina but this was absolutely the equal of it. The cheesecake dessert was magnificent. We could not fault this place. Service was also very very good. I like that the waitress said at payment time that they are not allowed to accept tips which I really hope means that they are well looked after. I'd be disappointed if they are not. All in all a great restaurant which should not be missed. Shame we didn't try it until the end of our 6 month stay in SurabayaMore

I have an anniversary dinner with my gf, and we order angus prime steak include with appetiser and dessert. The appetiser was good, and the steak was superb. I really enjoyed the steak. But i think the price is a little bit to high. In...the same price i would recommend platinum grill for the better dinning experienceMore

We were recommended to try this restaurant run by owner-chef Hendry Sedjahterah. Having lived 8 years in Surabaya we thought we had tried very good place. What a surprise. The food was great, the starters were fantastic and then steak was melt in the mouth...delicious. My wife had te white fish and it was very tasty and delicate. Hendry came out practically after every course to ask it was and if we were doing OK. Very caring chef and wonderful host... Price is a bit on the steep side but worth the price for a very special ocasion.More

Great restaurant... And I guess the only place in surabaya where the owner is the cook himself. Experienced in European with a touch of Asian!! Absolute the best fine dining option in town.

We stopped off in Surabaya, and happened to stumble onto Citrus Lee. It was a highlight of our trip through Java. True fine dining experience, like nothing else we have experienced in Indonesia. Modern fusion food, with the care for detail that makes a meal...truly delicious. We had starters, mains and dessert - and everything that was put before us was of a very high standard. We wish there were more restaurants like this one throughout Java - especially with such reasonable prices. Thanks for a FANTASTIC dining experience. :)More
