 (Chicago)·Dined on July 7, 2017

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.

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

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.

My husband loved the sizzling shrimp & my lamb satay was excellent. Our waiter was friendly, helpful & available. We felt well taken care of & comfortably full.

Delicious food, spicy but not too hot. The flavors are different from Indian, Thai, or Chinese, and are very pleasing. Service is friendly and helpful when the dishes are unfamiliar. The setting is fairly dark and cozy, and is quiet enough for comfortable conversation. We have eater here several times and always enjoyed it.

This was my second visit to Bandung, and I wish that I lived closer to frequent the place more often! The staff is very friendly and bends over backwards to be accommodating. The food is a delight for the taste buds and any questions about the menu are deftly answered. I have yet to make a selection that I haven't licked my plate clean on. My dining companion was also very impressed with her selections. The price is unbelievably reasonable for what you get. We shared a starter (a tapioca shrimp cracker plate--so generous we couldn't finish it!), ordered 2 entrees (hers featured shrimp and mine was a lamb/potato curry--no complaints from either of us!) , had 3 glasses of wine plus a Thai Iced tea (too yummy!) and the bill was under $55. Service was fast, efficient, and attentive. We never felt like we were lacking for anything . Kudos to the staff and chef(s) for such outstanding customer service and food.

Ive been coming here for years and I love it. The food is extremely tasty. They have a wide variety of items and many are vegan/vegetarian friendly. They have some good Indonesian beers and a decent wine list. I always get the keju (cream cheese wontons) as an appetizer- they are so good! They only come with four. I recommend one per person. Daging Redang is a really good dish, same with the Satay and the pad thai is amazing. The opor ayam is good too. You really cant go wrong with anything. If going on the weekend, definitely make a reservation.

Absolutely loved our experience at Bandung! We decided to try it for lunch and boy, what a find! Indonesian food seems to be a fusion of Chinese and Thai. Lunch entrees include 1 of 3 appetizers, so we tried 2--the spring rolls and the cream cheese filled wontons. Both were excellent and came with a spicy (but not overly so) sauce. I ordered the sizzling shrimp (somewhat akin to the way in which fajitas are served) over vegetables and loved the bright flavors in the sauce. Hubby had Krakatau chicken over vegetables in a sweet and spicy garlic sauce. Both came with rice. We ordered the Nutella filled wontons for dessert, which came with a scoop of ice cream -- nothing was left on the plate :-) Our total bill (including 2, alcoholic drinks) was less than $40. Service was speedy, friendly, and efficient. Definitely going to find some excuse to go back in the near future!
