We were the only guests on our first night in Kalimantan. Ordered simple chicken and later prawns. Not bally cooked but for far less you have better food in a warung as we found out later.

Don't look too hard in the kitchen on the way to the shabby toilet, ignore some Shabby decor and fittings, don't look at the table to see if it has been cleaned well and ignore the suspect cutlery hygiene. BECAUSE THE FOOD IS FANTASTIC AND I LOVED THE SPICY LOCAL DISHES.

Had a dinner in this restaurant as its one of the few in Pangkalanbun. Since the town is really not turistic havent even thought of checking prices before entering. Local rest, local prices right? Well big mistake. Paid about 3 times the prices i paid anywhere in Indonesia for a similar dish/restaurant. Felt like back in Europe. For fried chicken,... More

The restaurant is old fashioned but it's well kept and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. We had chicken soup and noodles which were both good.

The restaurant looks very bad from outside. Almost no one was eating and it's not charming at all. BUT...once you get your food you'll get fantastic seafood and river fish. All is freshly cooked and really really tasty. I suggest the big river prawn! Also is one of the few restaurant in Pangkalan Bun!

The restaurant is not really favorite to local people I guess, because when I were there there were no other visitor. We ordered "udang Galah" the giant freshwater shrimp, fresh water fish (BELIDA). The way they cook is average.. (or under?) but the shrimp and fish were really fresh... and because this things are depend on the freshness... so you... More
