I have been travelling to Darwin for six years and feel cheated I was only introduced to Sari Rasa today. A colleague took me there for lunch. It was fabulous. I am vegetarian but this posed no issue for the "choose from the variety of pre-made pots" scenario. The flavours were distinct and everything tasted super fresh. Can't wait to... More

haven't been here in years but the menu is still the same which is Ok as the food is good. $12 for the small plate and $13 for the large so you may as well go large for the extra dollar

Worth the hunt, it's really not too hard to find but not so in the open, but it will be all worth it once you place any of their delicious food on your tastebuds

This shop doesn't look like much but when you step inside you can see that it is usually packed around lunch time. And with good reason. The food here is absolutely amazing. Full of flavor and very reasonably priced. If you are looking for authentic Indonesian food you should definitely visit Sari Rasa.

Sari Rasa is my most frequented lunch venue. I highly recommend the chilli beans, dried beef and potato and the eggplant with steamed rice.

Great Indonesian selection for lunch. Doesn't look like much and is at the back of an arcade but is a popular spot with locals looking for a bit of spice at lunchtime. About $15 a plate of various selections.

Very casual and bit tired but it is a very popular spot and the food is tops and value is very good. Bit hard to find, but decent feed. Lunch hours on weekdays only.

This place is not much to look at and you definitely would eat here if you never heard about it before. But it is Darwin favourite and many locals come here because of the authentic Indonesian cuisine and generous servings. There little old ladies serve you and they may not be the most bubbliest but they are adorable. Just looking... More
