Sweet date spot on a chilly night – My fiance and I love this neighborhood spot. While it may not be the ultimate foodie destination of the universe, we love to go here for its warm, casual charm and interesting, tasty food. Jean-Georges it is not, BUT it has a certain kind of warm charm which is reliably perfect on a cold, blustery day. We always get the feast for two, which includes some wonderful soup to start, two different little salads and a hot plate of different kinds of meat and seafood dishes, as well as dessert with coffee or tea. I highly recommend it!
Very Pleasant Surprise - a gem – I've been walking by this place for several years and have always been curious to try it. I finally tried Java tonight and was glad I did. The place is small and cozy, has tapestry-like tablecloths and plants in the front--sort of hippie decor but not in a bad way. My husband and I ordered the dish for two (Rijsttafel) and it was $35.95 with all sorts of small dishes to share--lamb, beef, chicken, shrimp, cod, and veggies PLUS our own soup appetizer and dessert and coffee/tea. We really enjoyed all of it. The sauces for the dishes were curry, peanut, tamarind and some others. Some dishes were spicier than others, but nothing was super spicy. The service was very nice and mellow, not hurried and the food came out fairly quickly. We came in with no expectations and were really happy with everything. We plan to go back a lot now that we know it's so good and very reasonable. Definitely try it!!
From the service to the decorations to the warm greeting that you receive when you walk through the door, Java makes you feel like youre at home. The food is incredible and prices are even better. Being an Indo girl and raised in an Indonesians kitchen, I know good from bad and this is defiantly good!!! Salam!
Soooooo good! – The Indonesian food is slightly toned down for Yankee palates, but delicious and very reasonable.
The staff are friendly and helpful and never rush you, and while your date's in the loo you can enjoy looking at all the interesting Indonesian artwork.
Great spot! – We got the Rijstaffel for 2 last Saturday night and it was delicious - a great deal as well - soup, salads, 12 dishes to share, rice, dessert, coffee or tea, etc. for $29.50!
The service was great - our waiter was just lovely. He described all the dishes to us and was very attentive. Looking forward to going back again soon.
Try the lunch special – The lunch special is a great deal. The soup you get is so cool -- tasty and all kinds of interesting ingredients. I got a fish dish (I think it may have been red snapper) with a peppery sauce and it was delicious. The waitstaff (owners?) are really nice and friendly.
Great Food – Great Home Style Indonesian Cooking. Reminds me of how my mother used to cook me dinner when i was younger. Cozy atmosphere .. Nice place to take a date out for a romantic evening. Try the Rijstaffel for 2. It's like a 3 course me from soup to salad to a main course and dessert or coffee or tea at the end. This place is Great. 10 Stars !!!
