A feast of Sundanese food
This is a very popular restaurant whihc gets extremely packed on weekends as many Jakartans visit Bandung in weekends. The location is very good and just walking distance from the Gedung Sate building and also not far from the factory outlets of Jalan Riau. We came her for an early lunch on a weekday so the place was still quite empty. All the food is laid out on long tables and you select whatever food you want and the staff heat up or cook the food and bring it to the table. The selection was really huge. We were ordering for three adults and two children so we ordered many of our favourites like Ayam Bakar, Gurame Goreng, tempe, tahu, veggie dishes and many more. I found that the food is basically good, although not the best. For example, the gurame goreng was not hot and a bit hard. And the steamed rice was not hot and also quite hard probably because it had been cooked a lot earlier and been sitting around for a while. We prefer when rice is served directly out of a rice cooker, steaming hot. However, basically all the dishes were fine and we would eat here again.

Great Sundanese Food
My first time here and the food was good. Service was just okay even though there's many waiter and waitress but service was quite slow. I like that you can choose the food that you want then they will prepare the the dishes.

Good quality and taste for food, but below expectation for service.
In terms of the food quality and taste: I rate Sambara is very good. However, in terms of Service, it is below expectation. Little bit chaotic during peak hour. When I visit, I dont think it is peak since there are still 2-3 empty tables. It is our 1st time coming to this restaurant, and no waiters coming to us to explain how to order. We ask and seems everybody is busy. It is ourselves who guess by seeing other customer, where we need to pick our own raw-food and mention our table to the order picker. You need to remember what you order, since it may not come to your table and you are still being charged. It happens to us, although being settled after we complaint. Anyway, the food quality and taste is very good. So I am still satisfied with Sambara and may come back again next time.
