Careto

Reviewed By Rahman_Priyono - Jakarta, Indonesia

I came late Friday evening. Not many customers dine in that time but the restaurant staff gave warm welcome to our group. The environment is cozy and relaxing. There are several separated dining rooms suitable for lunch/dinner meeting or small party. Taste of the food is average.

Rumah Makan Heni Putri Kaili

Reviewed By Yefta a

When Festival Teluk Palu 2014 was held, I invited by the Head of Tourism Department of Central Sulawesi Province to do a coverage about the event. Right after I am landed on Palu, I was picked up by the Tourism Department's staffs and they brought me to this restaurant to get some bite to eat. The meals provided here was looks and tastes good. One thing that make this restaurant different is they had Kaili's (one of the local tribes in Palu) menu.

Reviewed By Endah_Jakarta - Jakarta, Indonesia

Banyak restoran Kaledo di Palu dan umumnya pemiliknya masih bersaudara satu sama lain. Resto Kaledo Abadi dikelola oleh ibu dari resto-resto kaledo yang lain seperti Stereo. Rasanya lezat. Kaledo atau kaki lembu donggala adalah menu wajib ketika berkunjung ke Palu.

Coffee Toffee

Reviewed By Radimdim - Prague

Maybe I just had a really bad luck, however when I came for a coffee and a dessert I was told that the coffee machine doesn't work plus I can't get the pancake with banana which I wanted to order for unknown reason. Anyway, I was offered iced black coffee instead of my espresso and pancake with ice cream,but the overall experience wasn't anything too exciting. But they offer some fried food,even a burger I believe if you feel like that.

Kaledo Stereo

Reviewed By WordsRNotEnuff - Jakarta, Indonesia

If you are meat-eater and happens to be in Palu, you definitely have to visit this place. The kaledo (kaki lembu donggala) beef bone soup is so delicious with spices, the meat so tender. You can request the soup with or without bones. Arrive early evening before it gets packed.

Killiney Kopitiam Palu

Reviewed By Jasmin S - Malang, Indonesia

It has captured the spirit of the same KillineyKopitiam in Singapore, but with a better view plus an additiional nightlife possibility.
It is spacious, comfy and have enough food variety just like the one in Singapore. The decor reflects the nostalgic kopitiams in Singapore, complete with the road signs and facade photo spread over the focal wall.
It is near the airport, so I would recommend those who are too early when approaching the airport to stop by and have a nice meal. Or for new arrivals to Palu.

Resto TABE (Tarasa Bedanya)

Reviewed By Geby A - Tangerang, Indonesia

me and my cousin was longing for crab when we traveled in Palu! we wonder how difficult it could be, and we cant find it anywhere! that was quiet night enough 10.00 PM, and we decide to jump to these resto. we ordered Rica Fish (grilled), its delicious! Beansprout and daun kelor. and of course we ordered crab! before i ordered, i asked the waitress, how many crab that we will get? and she said 2 crab! so thats enough for 5 of us. but when it served on our table, the crab is just half of big crab and a quarter of small crab. I asked the same waitress why its just 2, and she said that is the big crab. yes thats just half of big crab. make sure that they dont cheat on you!

Rumah Makan Ketupat Uta Dada

Reviewed By Ed-Henry - Indonesia

Uta Dada is a specialty dish of Palu, Central Sulawesi. It's made of rice cooked in a pouch made form weaving coconut leaves. It's usually eaten with a spicy, herbal (curry & others), chicken broth. This restaurant was situated on top of a hill overlooking the city of Palu and the bay - a very scenic eating place. The place itself is very modest and simple, but don't let this fools you. The restaurant was featured in the President magazine.
I tried the Uta Dada and also some grilled chicken. They were so yummy I went for a second helping.
