Indonesian Street Food Vendors

We’ve handpicked a selection of show-stopping street food vendors and restaurants in the UK that offer authentic Indonesian cuisine.

The Garuda

The Garuda opened in June 2000 and is still the only Indonesian restaurant in Wales. The menu has been chosen with great care by the owner and chef to bring you the best of Indonesian cooking – from delicious rice dishes to dishes suitable for vegetarians and vegans. An evening at the Garuda is a chance to sample and enjoy the exotic cooking of Indonesia – the “land of a thousand islands”.

Mama Eti

Mama Eti offers stunning street food in the West Midlands, showcasing the rich cultural diversity of Indonesian cuisine. From rich coconut based Sumatran Pandang curries to national favourites like Nasi Goreng and Gado Gado, Mama Eti offers a diverse choice of Indonesian dishes. You’ll find Mama Eti at Brum Yum Yum’s and Sketts Fine Food Markets.

Krakatoa Indonesian food choice


Krakatoa is Yorkshire’s only Indonesian restaurant. It serves authentic Indonesian dishes from all over the archipelago and is run by a family from the Maluku islands in Indonesia.

Bali Bali

Bali Bali is a truly authentic Indonesian restaurant in the heart of London’s West End and boasts that it offers the best Indonesian experience outside of Indonesia! Over the years it has steadily built a reputation as a venue where you can relax, enjoy excellent food and find yourself in a little part of Indonesia.

Our Indonesian Kicap Tofu, uses the Indonesian sweet, syrupy, spiced soy sauce Kicap Manis and the fresh flavours of root ginger, chillies and coconut typical of an Indonesian market (pictured right).
