The food was very fresh and some of it was excellent. The overall palate was somewhat more limited than I had expected, but I ordered only vegetarian dishes. The service was absolutely fine for this sort of place, and the price was great. We had a wonderful time.

Food awesome, service not!!!
This is not my first time coming here. And, as I always say, food is awesome and delicious. As usual, service has some glitches. I had an open table reservation, but I had to wait for 10mins before someone looked at us, and were seated at a table. We looked into the menu for 5mins, and it took them good 15-20mins to get back to us take our order. We were hungry, and just hoped rest of the dinner would go fine, and it was fine. After we are done with our food, we waited again around 15mins for someone to get to us. Luckily, we were attended, got check and our leftover food was packed. We had to wait 10mins again for someone to take our credit card, and bring back the final bill. It should have been 1hr dinner, instead took 2hrs. Just saying!

The food is good and very plentiful, especially the rijsttafel, its Indonesian tasting menu. Second time we've been there.

Food is good, service can be better
Food is awesome as usual. I wish they recognize loyal patrons, I ordered extra curry for my parata, the hostess didn't seem to note it down, and I haven't got the extra curry. Lucky that, someone else cared for us, and got extra curry on request.

We were late for our reservation, but because the restaurant was quiet, we were seated immediately. The server suggested that we either share one large bowl of soup or order smaller ones. The smaller bowl, plus shared spring rolls was just perfect for a pre-theater lunch. The staff were all very friendly and responded quickly to our requests. We were shocked when the bill came to under $20! So much for so little! We will be returning next visit to the theater district!

San Francisco Indonesian Gem
Found this restaurant doing a web search for something affordable but tasty for our out of town nephew. It was a quick walk, just a few blocks from the Grand Hyatt on Stockton street. Service was a tad bit slow but we were not in a hurry so no problem. Food was excellent and you don't have to worry about the double chili spice designations on the menu... those dishes were not too hot. Generous portions of tasty inexpensive food. What more could you want in the city?

Authentic Indonesian food
No need to dress up, just walk on in. A bit worn down looking. Typical cheap art on the walls, plasticy plants, etc. But you simply go for the food, that's it. Generous portions of authentic Indonesian fare. Roti prata was a great starter. Pleasant wait staff, but limited. Two people servicing a whole restaurant.

We are regulars here, and we always get recognized immediately. Food is awesome, we come here especially for Roti Prata. We tried most of the items, and everything is good.

I've first tasted Indonesian food in the Netherlands and I love it! My Dutch friend recommended this restaurant in SF. And I'm impressed! Celebrated my birthday with good food! I now know where to bring my friends and family....It was worth the experience!

Good food, pleasant place
We always enjoy our meals at Borobudur. The service was again friendly, efficient, and helpful without being intrusive. I went on a Friday and by the time I left the place was (deservedly) full, so be sure to reserve on weekend nights.

Always Good and Consistent
If you like, are curious or even interested in Indonesian food this is the go to place in downtown San Francisco. I had a friend visiting from San Diego and thought he would enjoy the experience of Borobudur's rijsttafel which is their rice-table dinner. It was a good way to sample their many traditional dishes. Reasonably priced for 2 at around $27.00 each which included a choice of appetizer, soup and then a selection of 6 generous dishes and then a choice of dessert. My friend enjoyed his rijsttafel experience and thought the food delicious. I have been going to Borobudur on and off since the mid 1990's and never had a bad meal no matter what I chose to eat. Their Gado Gado salad is one of the best of have had anywhere.

Thanksgiving Indonesian Style
It was great to leave the cooking to Borobudur. The food was good and we are again so glad they were serving but the service was quite slow. We ran out of wine and dishes piled up. Prices were very reasonable and they had an amazing selection of dishes.

Even though the restaurant is not in the best part of town, the food is certainly worth the adventure getting there. Their soto ayam was fragrant, delicious and light. The grilled chicken was wonderfully seasoned, grilled with a nice kick from the heat department. They even have soda gembira (happy soda) which made me very happy. A definite return when we are back in the city!
