Rachel and I discovered this Indonesian restaurant by accident when we walk passed it a few months back and were immediately arrested by the sweet aroma of their rendang. We were headed for another restaurant then, but we made an effort to return to the area to try out Sari Indo within the next few days.
The nasi padang dishes are served “chap chai peng” style; orderly displaced with price tags beside each of the dishes, behind a glass panel.
Rachel and I were quite famished that day and picked out quite a few dishes to try. All were good, save for the brinjals which cold and rubbery. Maybe they would have tasted better if we ordered them fresh, earlier in the day.
As Rachel cannot take spicy food, she was pretty glad most of the curry and chili dishes were more sweet and flavourful rather than just strong on the hot factor. We particularly love their rendang.
If you are interested to try out the place, here’s the address:

I’m eD, from Indonesia. I’ve been a fan of your blog for quite some time now, but never give a single comment on your postings.
You know, I always wait for your food review, it makes me “happy” to see you & Rachel eat A LOT of food, yes, a resto reviewer that actually eats. LOL. Just kidding.
BTW, so you’ve tried some Indonesian cuisine huh? Nasi Padang. FYI, back here, you can find that kind of food, like everywhere.It’s easy to find, cheap, spicy & they always served it in a very big portion, that’s why lots of Indonesian people love Nasi Padang *yeah, me too*.
Can’t wait for your another restaurant review. Yay!
P.S. I don’t like brinjals (or we called it Terong), too icky. LOL.
Hi eD! 🙂
Thanks for the kind comments. Glad you like our food reviews. You know any good Indonesian restaurants in Singapore to recommend? Or any must-try dishes?
You’re so welcome. Yay!
Since I’ve never been to Singapore, I don’t think I can give you any recommendation.
But, if I can make a suggestion, you (and Rachel off course) should try to find some Satay (chicken barbecue), Indonesian style, with the peanut sauce.
or some Es Teler 77 (tradtional mixed ice with toppings). There’s one outlet in S’Pore.
If you try some Sundanese, please be careful with the chilly, usually it was spicy.
Ah, just google it, and you can find a lot of Indonesian restaurant in Singapore.
Not helping enough heh? Sorry…. ;p
Thanks eD. 🙂
Has the management of this restaurant changed hands? I am a nasi padang fan, always go to Garuda (Jakarta and Vivo City) and Sari Bunduh whenever I am on business trips to Jakarata.
We have just left the restaurant a while ago, and we don’t see the food display as shown in photo #1 above, and the food is more peranakan rather than nasi padang. Price is reasonable, taste is average, but we suspect they use frozen meat (chicken rendang and asam fish). Quite a disappointment.
