Bamboo Village
Cuisines: Indonesian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 October 2008

I lived in Indonesia for 2 years and my wife is Indonesian so I think that qualifies us. We feel that this is one of the best Indo restaurants we've been to in the US in terms of food quality and quantity. Paula just kept the plates coming. We liked this place so much on the first nite that we went there again the next nite. We happened on Bamboo Village by accident as our GPS took us to another restaurant that was closed. The 2nd Indonesian restaurant was out of business so we tried this one. Serendipity!

A little pricey but you did get what you paid for, we tried the Rendang, seasoned to perfection. The Gado-Gado had all the right ingredients and the peanut sauce was authentic. The Sop Buntut actually had meat in it instead of bones and gristle we've found in other restaurants.

The fried Gurame fish had the meat peeled forward from the tail like Dumbo's ears and it was delicious. The Soto Betawi and plate of Tempe and Tahu was very flavorful (great things done with soy). Price was about $60 for each night for the 2 of us. Parking was on the street, decor average. In a word Lezat (delicious).

Not bad but not the best Indonesian food I've had in the bay area and it's a bit pricy too.

Most authentic in the City but nothing compares to home.

The fried noodle is much beyond my expectation, it was ggrrreeeaattt!!! Seriously, i was just passed by with my friends and kinda hungry, we decided to gave it a shot, and we never regret it. Bamboo Village has been our favourite rest. ever since.
