Fodor's Review

This busy but relaxed neighborhood restaurant acts as a not-too-adventurous intro to Indonesian cuisine. Since 1969, Sama Sebo has gained nearly institution status by dishing out rijsttafel in an atmosphere enhanced by bamboo walls, miniature wood "spirit houses," and 19th-century-style lamps. At lunch the dishes are simpler: bami goreng (spicy fried noodles with vegetables or meat) and nasi goreng (the same, but with rice instead of noodles). You can wait for your table in the friendly bar area.
