A group of four, we recently dined at Sendok Garpu Indooroopilly for the first time. We ordered the banquet, and were not disappointed. Lovely authentic Indonesian dishes, full of flavour, and made with fresh ingredients. The staff were friendly and attentive, and the prices seemed reasonable. We will be back!

There are two Sendok Garpu Indonesian restaurants and we went to the Indooroopilly one recently. I had previously been there and had heard it wasn't as good but we didn't find this the case. We arrived just after 6.30pm on a Saturday night before it got too busy so service was fairly efficient. It was also very friendly. We started... More

Amazing authentic food, good service and interesting drinks - decor could do with a polish up but the food here makes you forget everything else - in love!

Authentic Indonesian food from mild to spicy! Try some of the different dishes and you won't be disappointed! The staff are lovely and very attentive and helpful without being intrusive. There was a group of 10 of us and everyone loved the food. This was at the Indooroopilly restaurant.

The food was really very ordinary. Rice dishes lukewarm with sparse meat while the curries were very basic and far too hot for their description of mild. Quite pleasant, simple decor but better value and food on offer at most food courts.

Went to this restaurant this evening since I miss the Indonesian food so much. I could say this is one of the closest to the real one I used to have at home when I still lived in Jakarta. When it is busy the food could take a bit longer

Not finding the restaurant we were looking for we decided to try something different. The atmosphere was not overwhelming, but the service was friendly and good. Being in a group of six we were able to sample various dishes, some of them very good and some below our standard.

I just ate at this wonderful restaurant with friends tonight and we all agreed the food was excellent. It is very tasty and good value for money. The staff are extremely friendly and the service is great. Not sure if the last person who wrote their comment two years ago was at the same Sendok Garpu restaurant as we were... More

Think traditional Indonesian street food mixed with authentic local and family favourites & recipes passed down through generations. This restaurant feels like Indonesia, tastes like Indonesia, with welcoming Indonesian hospitality. The Beef Rendang was so tasty but I must admit the lamb curry had a wonderful balance of flavours that I hadn't expected. The stand-out' culinary surprise for me was... More

There has not been a good Indonesian restaurant in Indooroopilly for years - so Sendok Garpu is most welcome! We went for lunch and they have a great, well priced lunch menu. We ordered several dishes to share and enjoyed everyone! The martabak was especially good and the tilapia. The test for me was the beef rendang and it was... More
