Low End Gado Gado
Gado Gado Boplo is a chain serving variants of its eponymous meal along with other Indonesian options. The Menteng restaurant is on Jl Gereja Theresia and is a large and popular eatery. Given that Gado Gado is its specialty, the eating just is not that great. The location is pretty easy to find on Gereja Theresia. There is parking in front but not enough space for a busy weekday lunchtime. The building is large with dozens of tables but it still seems pretty busy at lunchtime. The exterior is imposing rather than attractive and inside it has the feel of a canteen rather than somewhere particularly appealing. The place is quite clean but not exactly spotless. Service was run off its feet by having so many customers. There was too much to track and there were not enough menus to go around. Limited English was spoken but much easier to use Bahasa Indonesia. The food was a disappointment. The plating was terrible with the food clearly having slipped all over the place before landing which made it look poor. A Gado Gado itself was uninspiring. It had a little spice in it but the same amount of spice was in a meal ordered spicy as one ordered normally. Given this is a Gado Gado specialty it was just like other Gado Gados. There was nothing about it that was unique or interesting. Given this is the name of the place, the dish was not up to expectations. The menu is pretty extensive and of course Gado Gado itself is a vegetarian dish so that means there is something to eat here for veggies. Drinks come in quite a wide range and a good recommendation was made by one of the staff. Given that Gado Gado is available in many Indonesian restaurants, there was nothing about Gado Gado Boplo that stood out at all. This is just another low end Indonesian restaurant that competes on price rather than flavour.

Indonesian style salad
I like gado-gado. Gado-gado Boplo is one of the restaurant that serves gado-gado besides other food. The restaurant is clean and the price is acceptable.

Not the best...
A strange restaurant devoid of any atmosphere and frankly not worth going to unless part of a group and you have little or no choice. Local satay dishes are ok but invariably everything is served lukewarm and therefore rather bland and lacking any real excitement or punch. Prices good but for those wanting a beer you will be disappointed as this is a dry restaurant.
