This restaurant was recommended to us. Anja provided excellent service. We had the buffet. Chicken Pork Beef and vegetables. Everything was fabulous and well priced. A small restaurant but a must try while visiting in Curacao

We loved the peanut sauce and recommend ordering that sauce with fried plantains as a savory dessert. They are known as "Bananas Silvia", Absolutely delicious. We spend much more for less at other places. This atmosphere is casual, but the food is top notch!

The meals are smaller then before and the taste is less. it is still a nice small restaurant with just a few tables. The price are not high for the quality, but they are for the amount of food.

We ordered the Bami and Nasi Goering meals. They came with all sorts of Indonesian sides. Very nice... ate outside. Price was very reasonable.

For lunch I choose Sambal. I ate sate with french fries and peanut sauce. Fresh lemon juice this was delicious. So soon I shall return.

Located in a strip mall area. Food was ok but staff was friendly and attentive. Bit expensive for what we got and orders were all mixed up. The do have a vegetarian option though. Pick your own meat and rice/noodles for the wok fried option.

Unfortunately Rubi is not there anymore. This makes a huge difference and not for the good. No the place is not the same as it used to . I used to eat there at least once a month, not anymore

shockingly bad food. Behind the counter was a microwave and all the food came out of the fridge and got a 3 minute microwave treatment before being served. For 4 adults we paid $130!!! We have had Indonesian food in many places and this was simply horrible.
