Once you enter this place, it drawn you back to the Indonesian-old-time-atmosphere where the building's details are old and antique, one room in front has a long table and the wall is full of Malang B/W historical picture from the old days. Few antiques are place around the Rumah Makan such as; various colourful javanese masks, various kind of old radios, various kind of old typewriters, and different sizes of kuda-kudaan (wooden rocking horse).

Friendly service with traditional looks: waitresses wears kebaya and batik (javanese traditional fabric) skirt, waiters wear traditional black suit and blangkon (javanese man headpiece).

Find a comfortable way to suit your way either in lesehan (sitting on the tikar floor) or regular table/chair. The menu offers you variaty of traditional javanese cuisines.

The thing that is not so good about this place is the restroom. There's no toilet paper available, it's in poor condition.

Favorite Dish: Try the eggplant and tempe with spicy peanut dressing serve in stone plate (cobek), never found this in any other place, and it taste so good. The fried chicken is a whole chicken (with head still on) cooked in javanese sweet taste, so tender that the meat and bone seperate easily. It's a must try dish. Also try the rawon (east-java-traditional-soup) serve in the bowl place on the pot with warmer under it to keep it warm.
