We have eaten at Borobudur on numerous occasions. It is perfect for a pre-Theater meal, and it’s always good. Service is usually pretty quick, although it can bog down slightly if the restaurant is busy. The decor is also interesting, with a lot of eye-catching wood carvings and other Indonesian art work.

Both my parents were born and raised in Indonesia. Consequently, Indonesian cuisine was the food of my youth. Its flavors and aromas are highly evocative of countless fond memories of family gatherings and celebrations throughout my life. Borobudur hits that nail on the head every single time. Delicious food, friendly service. Love this place.

The rijstafel was the best way to taste 10 different items/dishes. Suprising was the price difference between internet sites, and even the outside menu. But the requested, and highest price, was on the table menu.

Borobudur is a great spot in the Tendernob. I'm a vegetarian and there are lots of vegetarian options to choose from. We loved the roti prata, a noodle dish with peanut sauce, and a tofu and spinach dish. Lots of great different tastes!

It's menu on OpenTable was very outdated. We did Rijsttafel. OpenTable menu had the price as $27.50 for one; $26.50 per person when there're 2+ people. The restaurant menu hasnit as $32 formone and $31 for 2+. A big difference.

The food was delicious, and amble the service was good. Rijsttafle gives you a chance to sample all dishes.

Besides the price the other item worth noticing was Rijsttafle comes with the choice of dessert or tea or coffee, not and tea or coffee. It's kind of rare, my own opinion that you get either dessert or tea or coffee instead of dessert and tea or coffee. We were charged for an extra hot tea.

Surprisingly good Indonesian food, with great service. We thoroughly enjoyed lumpia, chicken satay skewers with great peanut sauce, and bakhmi goreng
