Nasi Goreng Borobudur was excellent though less spicy than I remember from Amsterdam. The Nasi Padang was redolent of coconut and quite tasty. When I go back the San Francisco, I will return to Borobudur but I will request a much higher heat level.

Dropped by for a dinner while on a business trip. Ordered the coconut rice with some side dishes and enjoyed the meal. A welcome change from the western cuisine and will certainly return when I am next in town.

We don't have access to Indonesian food at home and always seek it out. We really enjoyed our meal here. It compares to anywhere we've been including Amsterdam And we found it it to be an incredibly good value in the city. Go hungry!
