Indonesian in Philly

  • 5

Is there any good Indonesian restaurant in Philly? I really like the rijstoffel in Amsterdam, but any Indonesian place would be awesome.

  1. It's Malaysian not Indonesian, but have you tried Penang in Chinatown? I wouldn't call it fine dining, but I have had a few decent meals there.

          I ate there last year and thought the food was insipid. Run don't walk to Hardena (see above), both the food AND the folks are fantastic. Be sure to ask for their home made sambal to go with your food.

        2. Yes, Indonesa Restaurant is good and definitely worth trying. Some dishes are *extremeley spicy and all the dishes I've tried there have been really tasty. Excellent prices too
