Im surprised nobody had taken any action to write a review of this restaurant.
I will leave it all to the audiences for this particular review smile

There are already at least two YUB threads on JakChat, though they provide scant information about the place. Sometimes there's good stuff on the Specials Menu, though often the entire menu is a lucky dip. The roast chickens aint bad. Sandwiches tend to be awful. The large bottles of Bintang are cold. Sometimes you get a damp and stained yellow face cloth. Some folk dislike the atmosphere of aloof Teutonic arrogance that pervades the place. I like the Johnny Cash tunes played there and the sexy outfits worn by the waitresses.

Here's the upshot of the two YUB threads here:

Wallet, Ya Udah is definitely not a sports bar. It's more like an open-air version of one of those American family restaurants like Red Robin or Denny's. They put up a special big screen for the World Cup...

I love this Bistro, because they have a selection of German style Wurst available, which you can buy to cook at home. It was a nice alternative to Kem Chicks since I live in the Central part of Jakarta. (Going to Kemang can be a pain sometimes! The traffic jam)... Being half German, even though in this "organic cuisine trend", still ocassionaly you miss a nice meal which includes Knackwurst or a Frankfurter and some Sauerkraut....!

Ya udah's forte is it's german offerings ... i eat there very regularly, despite my gripes about the place. but i just wish Pedro would buy a new CD! he's been playing the same one over and over for more than 3 years now, i think. maybe we should all band together to buy him a new CD, with new music.

well, standards have certainly been slipping at Ya Udah these past few months. more and more menu items are "kosong" -- something that has *never* happened in all the years I have been going there. i just now ordered take away goulash, and the usually-nice hunk of real bread was clearly and visibly mouldy ... maybe pedro's starting to lose interest ...

ya udah bistro, just place for eat. not too bad lol. when i lived in Jakarta sometime i came to jl.jaksa with my family and friends. actualy not too bad. alot cheaper than anywhere else in jakarta for hotels and foods. Good for tourist holiday and bacpacker.

Breaking News: Ya Udah buys new CD...

Who got banned you ask? Geez this list could run into the millions:
T-Rex banned for breaking EVERY rule in the "NO-NO" list,
Piss Salon banned for urinating,

For the price that they charge for large Bitangs, why would anyone order coffee?

the service was certainly slow. much slower than normal. that's not normally the case when i go there by myself for dinner, about 3 times per week. i think maybe they were kewalahan banyaknya orang ...
