Traditional Java food
The food here is really traditional and this little restaurant chain successfully offers tasty authentic dishes that are beautifully presented. Fish, meat, chicken and colourful vegetable offerings. Surprisingly there is even a Bumbu Desa airside in Jakarta airport which offers a delightful change from the standard international food.

Hardcore Java style. Beef and fish is pretty good, as is the Tempe beware, some is very spicy hot peppers.

.. REGIONAL SUNDANESE CUISINE - In a Neighborhood Restaurant Atmosphere
Business colleagues and I made a quick stop for lunch .. selections are made from a buffet line with many. many choices, and then served at our table by the wait staff, so the service was quick. The selections included many vegetables, salads, chicken and fish dishes .. more than enough to interest everyone's taste, as long as they have a pallette for this Indonesian regional cuisine .. Sundanese cuisine is all within the range of traditional Indonesian cuisines, nothing crazy. The interior decor is modern Asia, tastefully using a lot of natural materials, textures and colors. The furnishings are comfortable and solid, and the table settings of good quality. Some here complain of the prices, which we felt were very fair and moderate .. these might be long time patrons, wistful for the Bambu Desa of old .. I sense this place has a long history as a local's neighborhood restaurant, which has found success and is migrating upward from its roots. I would not drive across Jakarta to get here again, but would return for lunch or dinner if I was in the neighborhood.
