Very enjoyable dinner hosted by Wim and his team in his beautiful villa just outside Yogya, visiting the house with him and hearing his stories is half the fun. Go you won't regret it. Thanks for the delightful evening!

I really, really enjoyed dinner at the Sawah. This review is long over due. But the only things that I really miss of Jogja are the Borobodur temple and the Sawah. The food was simple and very tasty. Highly recommended!

The food was very tasty and the host really friendly. The dinner in the nice ambiance of the garden is definitely recommendable. However, as there was way too much food, also the price was on the expensive side.More

Sorry that our special concept (private home cooking after a booking) has one set menu only. I agree, the rijsttafel main course contains many different dishes, more than most people can eat, but every bowl should have sufficient food for everyone in the party. Nevertheless...More

PLEASE NOTE: ADVANCE BOOKING is STRICTLY NECESSARY, minimum 8-12 hours ahead. 'Cooking after booking' is the motto: we are not a normal restaurant but a beautiful private villa. Our ONLY and highly appreciated menu is our RIJSTTAFEL (rice table), with about 10 different Javanese dishes. The name rijsttafel is Dutch, the food is totally Indonesian ;-)
