This is a gem! Get the shrimp “udang”, a nice glass of wine, sit back and enjoy every bite. I drove around until I found a good parking spot. I made a reservation, walked in and felt driven to see all the pictures on the walls. I did not know how to choose a dish so our wait staff Pedro spent time helping us pick our dishes. I also stalked their website to get to know the dishes, without my receipt I would not know what I ate. Therefore, get Bala Bala onion fritters with the sweet sauce, the udang shrimp with onions and peppers and finish with the six feet under dessert of crumbled oreos, fresh mint, and an avocado ice cream/smoothie. This with wine was the best meal a person could go for.

I am from Holland and Indonesia used to be a Dutch colony (The language in many places was Dutch) and we like our Indonesian food with a nice, ice cold, beer. Their selection won’t disappoint you. Domestic, local, Belgian, draft and bottle. Also the wine selection is remarkable, Italian, South African, French, German, Austrian, Australian and (my favorite) South African. White, Red and Rose and…….affordable! We left the restaurant 2 hours later, happy, satisfied, and……warmly thanked by all from the kitchen, the servants and John. If you leave here with a hungry tummy, you have to see a doctor. Or an eye specialist. It won’t break the bank either. Cannot wait for the next time. We drove home enjoying the aftermath of the Krakatoa eruption. Never I felt rushed, every so many minutes one of the waiters passes by to see if all is satisfactory. It’s an experience. This time my wife and I shared the Bala Bala (Crispy Vegetable Fritters with onion, celery, corn and cabbage) with Indonesian Soy sauce and sambal sauce (spicy) as a starter, more than enough for 2 persons. After that, the main course we had the Nasi Goreng and the Sate as a side. We ended with a avocado mousse as desert, very tasteful and originally served.

Authentic feeling Indo-cuisine in the heart of downtown Hollywood. Flavors were mild, and the portions were fair; a good place to stop if you are in the area and hungry for something new. Parking is easy with a choice of street or a convenient garage nearby. You feel welcomed as you walk into a warm environment that transports you instantly to a street food stall in Indonesia. The atmosphere is well appointed with authentic Indo-decorations and personalized pictures of the owners’ trips to Indonesia and the South Pacific. The food tastes homecooked and the smell from the meat topped grill fills the room. We had the 3 meat sampler platter named Rijstaffel that had slow roasted beef, grilled chicken with peanuts, and also simmered lamb. The rice served with the dish was excellent, and classically served in a pyramid on a side plate with the pickled cucumber. Mild flavors compliment the average pallet, but more adventurous diners can request a bit more spice. Portions are on the smaller size, but the prices remain fair for the quality. Unfortunately, we had to pour our own beverages, but that may be due to the server possibly needing a little more training with his wine service, but honestly that wouldn’t deter us from returning.
