This eatery is simple and slightly larger than Ayam Penyet Ria, which is located in the same suburb. There is a profusion of traditional Indonesian items on the menu but the range varies each day, meaning the specials representing different parts of the archipelago change daily. The food and decor is quite traditional (so, like its name suggests, a warung) although here and there the place is still undergoing small modifications.

The rendang and green chilli paste were not too spicy but passable; unlike the fish cakes (pempek) which were so hot my daughter almost could not finish it. The service was pretty good, but like most Indonesian places food presentation isn’t a strong point. It seems Indonesian eateries in general could improve in this area, to increase the appetite of potential customers

Restaurant sederhana yg lebih besar sedikit dari Ayam Penyet Ria ini terletak di suburb yg sama. Menu yg bermacam ragam dari beberapa daerah ada disana, tetapi bukan dihari yg sama, maksudnya menu specialnya tiap hari ber-ganti2. Restaurant ini cukup aufhentic walaupun disana-sini masih ada modifikasi yg sedikit sekali atau hampir tak terasa. Rendang & sambal ijonya tidak terlalu pedas tetapi empe- empenya lumayan pedas hampir saja anak perempuanku tidak bisa menghabiskannya. 

Servicenya lumayan baik, cara menata makanan dipiring sama seperti kita makan dirumah. Sepertinya restauran2 indonesia ini harus menambah pengetahuan tentang presentation, hal ini kelihatannya tidak penting padahal ini penting sekali untuk menaikkan selera makan si pembeli. Sebagai contoh mereka bisa menaruh nasi di mangkuk kemudian diletakkan dipiring, jadi seperti dibentuk, lalu menaruh lauknya disekitar nasi. Menambah sedikit efford untuk menaikkan selera.
