Went for a private family party. First of all, the food was ok, can't complain about it but wouldn't go out of my way to run back there. The restaurant was tiny, which I know is expected on the LES, however, the single bathroom was literally inches from where food was being served. This was a complete turnoff. This gathering had adults as well as small children and we were dumbfounded by the negligence exhibited by the personnel in leaving the sidewalk basement access doors wide open DURING the party while young children were playing about!! We asked repeatedly to close the doors but minutes later, much to our disbelief would find them reopened and totally unsupervised. Well guess what??!! I fell down the very steep, steel stairwell, OUCH!!! After emerging bloodied and bruised I declined my relatives persistance to get medical attention in that I didn't want to make a scene. However, soon thereafter when I tried to get in touch with the owner (Rudy) to get compensation on some damaged clothing, I was totally blown off!! I've had my own business for some 30 years and would never treat a customer with such disregard, especially if physical harm was done. I personally cannot support an establishment in which the owner is void of principles and lacks any common courtesy. This guy is a creep!

You can almost miss Kuta as it is unassumingly tucked away just West of the corner of Rivington and Allen, but rest assured that a stop to this Indonesian Satay house will not disapoint. Order a glass of Verdecchio to start, it will go perfectly with the chicken or shrimp satays. Don't miss the Curry Puff which is a light, crispy delight. My fav is the Jakarta Mei Go Reng and my friend's is the Cashew Chicken, but whatever you order you will be pleased.
With a reasonable pre-fixe you can have a great date night and still have enough left over for brunch the next day.

Whenever my Indonesian girlfriend starts missing home, Kuta is always the answer. The creative take on southeast asian flavors leaves you wanting more. Combine this with down home friendly service and music reminiscent of Bali beaches, Kuta is a great reason to make your way down to Rivington. Make sure to have the Batavia and the Indonesian Madura, and indulge in the Chocolate Explosion, which clearly deserves its name. Highly recommend for a casual destination dinner and group events.

I took my boyfriend to Kuta and we weere a bit disappointed. We love satays and ordered a variety of them. The satays were on the expensive side and did not have alot of flavor. We thought the service was a little slow and the entrees were nothing special.

I went to this place for the first time recommended by some friends. It was excellent. I used to live in Asia so can be very critical of asian food but this was excellent. The atmosphere was great as well - very relaxed. Definitely recommend this to people looking for an unpretentious place with very tasty and interseting food.
If you're looking for a nice, small place to eat great food without any attitude, Kuta is a good choice. We went as a group of 4 on a Tuesday night, so we got right in. Service was excellent - we found out at the end of our meal that our ""waiter"" was also one of the owners and a former chef from Rain! He did a superb job of recommending items after we told him our various likes (seafood, meat, not too spicy, etc.). Very reasonably priced, which is also a plus! We'll definitely go back.
We ate at Kutu Satay our last trip to NYC which was recommended from a good friend, and the food was awesome!!! The service was excellent! The atmosphere is intimate and cozy, the perfect place to meet up with friends, or to go out on a first date! I highly recommend this restaurant!
