Datang kesini minimal itu 4 orang, jd bisa makan nasi kebuli kambing bareng2 sepiring ber4. Nikmat bgt ditambah iga bakarnya dan sop sum2nya, semua enak, dagingnya lembut. Iganya lembut tp masih agak susah dilepas dr tulangnya, pasti bisa lbh lembut lg kok... Sayangnya minuman disini tdk ada yg istimewa, tapi makanannya juara Tempatnya sendiri jg agak kurang terawat, dinding sdh luntur catnya dan terkesan agak kotor

Cheap, Trendy but not Arabic Food
It was my wife's birthday and she's not been well. So unwell that she has only eaten a limited range of Javanese food and craved western junk food. We took her to Jogja to buy a Pizza Hut Pizza and some donuts, both of which were as awful as I remember them. After some shopping on Malioboro we were exhausted and decided to find a restaurant then retreat to our home in Gunung Kidul. Our eldest daughter was with us and is always searching for trendy restaurants to be seen in and Kamung Arab seemed the perfect choice. My wife and I love all kinds of Arabic Food and Kampung Arab being near the Universities certainly is trendy. The shabby chic décor fit the bill, but even in Jakarta or Manchester's Northern Quarter the shabby is a little more tasteful, maybe it would better to simply describe this as shabby. My sister-in-law and her husband who wanted Nasi Padang were unimpressed. There were lots of areas to chose to eat in, none particularly suited to our needs but we chose the upstairs terrace. I was a little taken aback when the menu arrived, no mezzes, no humus, no olives and bizarrely the only kebab was encased in the bread and fried like a samosa which they also had. The only meat was chicken or goat, now I am willing to forgive them for using goat and not lamb. But what is inexcusable was all the meat was fried and not grilled, serving sate would have been much more authentic. I chose chicken biryani with curry and spent my time trying to locate the biryani and the curry. What I did get was a small piece of fried chicken, nasi kuning and a sambal. Now it was actually quite nice and did have something of a middle eastern flavour to it. But after three months of Javanese food the last thing we wanted was a slametan meal. The Arab coffee was authentic with cardamom, but I forgot to ask to hold the sugar and it came authentically very sweet. I cannot rave about the service, but its what you expect in trendy restaurants in south Jakarta, so no reason to complain in Jogja. I'll bet its a great place for students to meet at night, but I could not recommend any tourists making a trip out of town for this, unless of course you want to mix with students at night. However, if your hotel is on the north ring road and you want somewhere local and cheap, I do recommend it, as long as your expectations are not too high. The price was very reasonable, about same for six as I would pay for one or two in south Jakarta, so even by Jogja standards cheap.

Varian menunya banyak, harga dan porsi mahasiswa. Yahut....meskipun nasi yg dipakai bukan beras arab tapi beras lokal. Ya sesuailah dgn harga. Potongan kambingnya gede, lembut, bumbu meresap. Pokoknya top
