This place has never disappointed me. The same agreeable people, good food, reasonable prices, and good quick service. We're lucky it's there, among the plethora of here today, gone tomorrow eateries in this area.

I dropped in for a quick lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The service was good and friendly. The meal was prompt, well prepared and fresh, and was not overpriced. The meal (photo below) was classic Indonesian, not too spicy and tasty.

Needed a quick lunch so popped in, and what a pleasant surprise it was. The perfect latte and the rice paper rolls were as authentic as it gets.
