Indonesian Food at Nusa Dua London


I'm eating around the world without leaving London and this week I had Indonesian food at Nusa Dua. Now Indonesian food is one cuisine I love and can find plenty of back home in Holland. I really miss it being here in London, so I was really happy to hear that this place had opened up in the West End.

It's not a fancy place by no means, but definitely a restaurant you feel comfortable in from the bat. It's decorated in a simple yet modern style with lots of traditional art that you can actually buy. Beats taking home a doggy bag.
I booked a table with 7 of my Dutch friends for the traditional rice table or rijsttafel as we call it in Dutch/ Indonesian. It's a great way to sample lots of mini portions of various Indonesian dishes. Kind of like tapas, but Asia style.

We kicked off with a plate full of lumpias or spring rolls and some chicken and pork satay. I loved the satay sauce and I had to hold myself back for not licking the plate.

Our mains consisted of a Javanese fish curry which consisted of lovely pieces of white fish swimming in a fragrant yellow curry. There were some potato dumplings also known as perdegel. Chilli prawns cooked with pineapple.

We also had a Gado Gado salad, which is made with rice, potatoes, bean sprouts and rice, hidden under a thick layer of peanut suace. And of course, my all time favourite, we had a babi rendang, beef slow cooked in a coconutty sauce.

We finished our meals with pisang goreng or fried banana drizzled with a chocolate sauce.

There was so much food that we struggled to finish it all, so yes, we left with doggy bags after all.

    1. It's not very common to have in the UK I guess. There are loads of restaurants like that in Holland. So really glad there is one here now.

  3. I went to Bali for the first time last year, staying not too far away from Nusa Dua in fact and have been wanting to retry those flavours ever since but as you say, there aren't so many choices for Indonesian food here so I'll definitely try and check this place out and I'm pleased to hear this is a place that's happy to give doggy bags too ☺

    1. I know. London is rubbish when it comes to Indonesian food. There is a catering company called ayam happy that pops up at festivals sometimes. I haven't tried them yet though.
