Fodor's Review

This busy but relaxed neighborhood restaurant acts as a not-too-adventurous "Intro to Indo" course. Since 1969, Sama Sebo has gained nearly institution status by dishing out rijsttafel, a feast with myriad exotically spiced small dishes, in an atmosphere characteristically enhanced by bamboo walls, miniature wood "spirit houses," and 19th-century-style lamps. During lunch they serve simpler dishes: bami goreng (spicy fried noodles with vegetables or meat) and nasi goreng (the same, but with rice instead of noodles). At the bar, you can wait for your table while having a beer and getting to know the regulars.
