I've never been to Indonesian restaurant before. I didn't know what to expect. Starting with a warm welcome and family like dining setting, I fell in love with this quaint place. The Soto Ayam soup and the Satay combo were so delicious. I loved the tea. It's the place for family and friends getting together to spend quality time and enjoy great food.

I have been to every Indonesian restaurant in L.A, and Ramayani is the best. Try the Nasi Goreng special with satay. The gado gado salad is also very good. The otak otak and corn fritters are very good appetizers.Take a trip up to west l.a to enjoy some good cuisine and warm hospitality.
I was very disappointed, food is all over price, the service is not that good.
I order my food togo and when I get back home, the portion is not deserved the price they charged!! food teat okay but not great.
Compare with the Samping Asia, this is nothing, Samping asia food is freshly made, good portion and price is reasonable. ...view more
I will never again go back to Ramayani, even though I live just down the street.view less
I am Dutch/Indo and I have to say that Ramayani's is the best Indonesian restaurant I have ever eaten at. The family that own it are very sweet people. I work at UCLA and it is so nice to have Ramayani's to go and have a delicious lunch. I have told all my family and friends to go to Ramayani's if they want the best Indonesian food.
This is simply one of the best eating experiences I've had in LA. As a non-local who's used to great Asian food on every corner I have been starved! for great flavours and have found the food at Ramayani to be very authentic. Definitely recommend it if Real Indonesian food is what you are after!
I am Dutch-Indonesian and have not had the opportunity to have an Indonesian home-cooked meal in quite some time, so I was beginning to get desperate. I had previously tried an Indonesian restaurant in Alhambra and to my dismay, I was very disappointed. So I have to be honest and say I went to Ramayani with some doubts. I was however, very surprised at how authentic the food is. The flavors were amazing, the portion was generous and they were very nice. I have gone back twice and plan ...view moreon going back more in the future, it helps that I only work a couple blocks away. How Convenient! : P\r
I would definitely give this restaurant a try as you will be very impressed!! The Food rocks, parking is a little tough directly near the restaurant but a Ross parking lot is a little bit up the street and there is plenty of space. I've always ordered to go, but the restaurant is nice and clean and it has an ""A"" which is super important.\rview less
I've never been to an Indonesian restaurant before this one, but I think it was very authentic and charming. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes, listed in Indonesian and English. The chicken dish I ordered was delicious, and I had a green jelly drink that nicely offset the saltiness of my entree. The restaurant is family owned and operated - our servers were a softspoken 60-something-year-old man and a middle-aged woman who was probably his daughter. I was surprised by the shelve...view mores of Indonesian canned foods for sale and the family pictures at the back, but they really just added to the mom-and-pop feel.view less
Had another amazing meal at Ramayani today. After reading complaints about slow service, we decided to bring something to read while we waited. We didn't get very far, though - the service was quick!\r
The decor is bright and colorful, obviously well thought-out. The hosts are warm and friendly.\r
As for the food - today we tried ayam bakar (chicken in sweet soy sauce) instead of our usual ayam bumbu rujak ramayani (sweet bell pepper sauce) - and we always request white me...view moreat. Both are flavorful and we'd order them again, although we're leaning toward the ayam bumbu.... We always order beef rendang and it did not disappoint! We have enjoyed gado gado and rujak salads here, but skipped them today to try the tumis udang dan pete - a zesty shrimp dish in a sweet tomato & onion sauce. And we allllways order frekedel jagung (corn fritters). You get four, so if there are two of you, be sure to save one each for your meal (it is an appetizer and will come first) - they taste so good with the various sauces of other dishes!\r
I almost forgot - got black rice pudding for dessert - perfection!view less
I love this restaurant so much, I decided to eat my birthday lunch there. I've liked everything I've had--the noodles are tender but not mushy, and the spices are flavorful but not overwhelming. I'm not an expert in Indonesian cuisine, but I do know that this is good food! The family that manages the restaurant is friendly, but they don't hover. It's an attractive, comfortable, low-key place to hang out with friends or read a book by yourself. Try the lumpia!
