Food is good and price is reasonable. However, it was understaffed. Need to wait during peak dinner time.

My boyfriend has been here several times, including a couple times with a friend who's very picky about good Indian food, and said we just had to go while we were in town. As his assistant and I had never had Indonesian before, we ordered the Rijsttafel (A Complete Indonesian Rice Table Dinner) for 3 and an order of roti... More

This restaurant was across the street from our hotel. I had never had Indonesian food before, so we thought we would check it out. The first good sign was that almost half of the diners were Indonesian. We had a noddle dish with egg, vegetable, and shrimp. It was excellent with a nice smokey flavor. One of the best Asian...

A long-time favourite when I'm in the mood for Indonesian food. The roti appetizer and Rendang Beef never disappoint. If you're feeling hungry you can't go wrong with the rijsttafel, but be warned it's a lot of deliciousness to take on at once! ;) It can get busy on the weekends, especially after 7pm, so make a reservation. Highly recommend.

My wife and I went on a weeknight, before a show. We asked if they could serve us quickly and were told any menu choices cpuld be quickly served. Restaurant was true to its word - we ordered the prix-fixte menu and plates were delivered quickly. Flavors were interesting...not quite like the 'old country', but interesting, nevertheless. quantities were excellent... More

Borobudur restaurant seems to have ran out of steam. Was here in 2011 and had a good experience. This time around was disappointing. Food was luke warm and bland.
