Krakatoa Indonesian Cuisine serves some of the most flavorful foods from Indonesia. We specialize in flavors from the area of Sumbawa Island Indonesia. Many dishes are inspired by the chef's memories and experiences as a child. Flavors of lemon grass, kaffir lime, coconut milk, coriander, and cumin meander through the menu. Krakatoa offers a variety of dishes, including vegetarian dishes exploding with flavor. All of our dishes are unique and cooked to order so they are the freshest possible when they arrive to your table. If you are looking for something new and different come join us in our cozy little restaurant. Experience a little bit of Indonesia not only in our food but our atmosphere where we have brought some items from our travels with many pictures to see and a big map of Indonesia that is sure to spark a conversation. We look forward to serving you.

It’s not everyday you walk into a restaurant and just know you are about to have a great experience. Everything about this restaurant is amazing. The food is exceptional and the staff and owner are extremely attentive. It’s great to find a neighborhood feel in a big city and that’s what they have here. It’s a true gem.

We had been looking forward to visiting Krakatoa for a while and all of our expectations were met and exceeded. The staff was open, friendly, attentive and happy to make menu suggestions since it was our first visit. The menu was varied enough to satisfy our family's varied tastes. You could easily make a meal with just their appetizer selection. I loved the Rendang Tofu and I can't wait to go back again to try other dishes, but may be tempted to have the same dish. We'll be back!!!

This is a hidden gem in Hollywood. The service staff was excellent and attentive without being intrusive. And the food was wonderful! Such a delicious and innovative menu is geared to please the most discriminating palate. Enjoy an exceptional meal now; I’m certain this restaurant is on its way up!

If you are not afraid of exotic-sounding dishes, then a visit to Krakatoa should be on your calendar. No one in our party of four had experienced Indonesian cuisine before, but everyone loved their fod, starting with the bala-bala (fried vegetable) appetizer -- we were going to order another before the waiter warned us the entrees were large. A wide range of entrees -- beef, lamb, chicken fish or vegetarian -- prepared with a delicious blend of spices (you can chose your level of heat) should please any diner. We live in north Broward County, but plan to return soon.

Delicious fresh food every time I have been to Krakatoa! The owner comes to your table to see what type of spice you like. He makes recommendations that will suit your palate! For an adventurous meal I highly recommend Krakatoa!!!

Service was great and the food was outstanding! They were really careful to protect two of us with food allergies and dietary restrictions, which they made very easy to navigate and our group of 12 was a very happy dozen when we left. We are still talking about it several days later.

Tap water needs to be filtered when served. Friendly waiters. Food was ok.

if you had asked anyone working in our restaurant you would have found that all drinking water and water to make ice is filtered. Making a comment such as this without verification is not appropriate and absolutely incorrect.

The food was flavorful with exotic spices that is different but reminiscent of Thai or Indian food. The value was good. Bottles of wine were reasonably priced.
Our first time there but will return.

We had a reservation for 2 and sat at a small table near the entrance nut was very comfortable.
The staff is very friendly and efficient. They came by the table several times to be sure every thing was going well. The food was delicious ! It was our second time at Krakatoa and we will be going back regularly.

If you have never been to Indonesia you might think this is the real thing
The owners try very hard, service very attentive
The food just does not look too appealing
Why is it served in a tagine?
I wish them luck and maybe over time it will improve

The location was easily accessible and the restaurant’s decor funky and fun. What was most impressive was the spectacular flavor profiles. The food was meticulously prepared and the flavors were amazing. One of the owners came to greet us and he was very friendly and welcoming. Overall, it was a great experience. We will definitely be back!

I was unfamiliar with Indonesian cuisine, and it was excellent. Somewhat similar to Thai, although a bit spicier. We arrived a few minutes late due to Hollywood's "fun run" and extra crowds for to spring break. The staff was very friendly. We had to wait a short while for a table. The restaurant is very small and we were offered an outdoor table which I generally prefer, but at 9:00, the music from next door was blaring. Anyway, the food was delish. We had the house special for 2. The rice was great, served in a cone shape like the volcano, Krakatoa. The beef, lamb, and chicken were each tender and flavorful. One in our group had the Seafood Mei, seafood with noodles, which was also a winner. All in all, it was a great dinner!

The food was absolutely phenomenal. One of the gals in our group walked passed the open kitchen and commented that "This place is the real deal - they are grinding their own spices!" Service was a bit spotty, but extraordinarily friendly and helpful. They just needed one more server.
