One of famous local Indonesian restaurant. Services was great, price is ok. Crowd people during peak time, but we didnt wait that long for cooking. A must is fried fish. You can eat all even fish bone. Worth for fighting with traffic in Jakarta, if you want to come here.

We had one whole fish, squid ....and fried tofu and vegetables....all for 350,000 rupiah. These back.home would have cost us 350,000 rupiah just for the fish. Definitely come here when in Jakarta. It's Indonesian food at its best and it's full of locals and not tourists so you can be sure the food is good and the pricing is reasonable... More

Stick to Gurame and you will be fine here. If you go for seafood such as crab and prawn, the price is a little bit at the high end. But the service is undoubtful good.

Very crowded restaurant. You will find that other reviews were not faked. It was the best Pesmol I have ever had. No wonder there almost fully filled every night. Just try it, and you'll want to go there again... Really worth the wait, worth the traffic, worth the money...

Thank Faisal R
