Impressed when we walked in the door and our table was set and ready for us. It was down hill from there. Service was especially slow concerning there were not many diners. My wife's meal though she ordered a small portion was more like an appetizer. I ordered the BoPo chicken (based on the server's recommendation) and it was very bland. Tried it, but once was enough.

Love this place! It's usually on my list for birthdays, dates, nights out with friends, etc. Service has always been good, and food is excellent. Curries are a good portion sizes and interesting combinations, and the noodle dishes are delicious and HUGE.

This was our first visit to Bandung and we thoroughly enjoyed the dinner. The ambiance is nothing special, but the service was excellent. Our waitress was very personable and knowledgable about the menu. I had the Pad Thai which was excellent. My wife had the Mahi mahi which she enjoyed; however, she thought it had a bit too much sauce on it. The meals and wine were very reasonably priced. Definitely will return

Great food. My expectations were limited, but the reality exceeded my expectations by a lot. The server suggested the dishes, which we really liked. I will definitely come again when visit Madison next time.

Always dependable. Excellent food. Very careful about allergies, etc. I'm allergic to fish, so being able to get Pad Thai and other Asian foods without worry is a real treat.

My friends and I went to this restaurant on a Thursday for dinner, it was very quiet, we were the only table. The local beer selection was good, we tried many appetizers and enjoyed them all. Each person's entree was delicious, although the small portion was a bit small for one of the men in our group. The waitress was very helpful and attentive.

About 2 years ago, Bandung used to be one of our go-to restaurants in Madison - quick evening dinner, celebration dinners, friends get-to-together. We've noticed that the food quality (and portion size) has declined. The Pad Thai was all heat and so terribly bland that I actually had to ask for fish sauce to amp up the flavor. The Lele Kemangi was so-so but the portion was small. The Eggplant Curry (which used to be my favorite) was again, terribly bland. They must have changed cooks which is unfortunate. I will sadly not be coming back nor will I be recommending this restaurant to others. Terribly disappointed.

I went here with some family visiting out of town and everyone very much enjoyed their dish. Most of the menu is spicy dishes (indicated by a flame on the menu) and while the waitress said you could pick the spice level several of my companions commented that even low spice on a dish labelled spicy was a bit hot. I have a very low spice tolerance and ordered a dish not labelled spicy and it was great and not spicy at all. I would definitely go back and try more dishes.
