We’ve been fans since their humble beginning at Yellow Green market, and were thrilled when they moved to downtown Hollywood. The food is authentic, full of flavor and served with attentive service. We will continue to go back, and you should too.
This place doesn’t look like much. Very small
with more outdoor seating than indoor. I think beer and wine only. My daughter had beer, a nice mango IPA. I had wine and I think there was a whole bottle in the three glasses I had - very generous pours! We started with the corn fritters, which were awesome. It was a huge portion - more than enough for an appetizer for two. I had shrimp satay which came with a spinach salad (very fresh) and a beautiful pyramid of fragrant rice. It made a perfect meal and the peanut sauce was delicious.
What really made this place special was the outstanding service. The waiter and the manager were very attentive, fixing our table that was a bit wobbly, making sure we had the correct sauces for the fritters, discussing portion sizes and heat levels. They really were wonderful, without being the least bit pretentious. If you’re looking for something in Hollywood other than grouper sandwiches or burgers, this is the place!
John is a joy and dining at Krakatoa is always a pleasure and never disappoints.
I like everything in that restaurant.
Excellent service and delicious food! We will definitely be back!
An explosion of flavors! First time here and cannot wait to return to try different menu offerings. Highly recommend.
Charming restaurant. Food was excellent and cooked as we ordered.
Our server was polite and professional.
I would go back
I just finished my "Leftovers." So sad. I can't wait to return. The spice blend of cardamon, star anise, cinnamon, and clove on the sauteed beef with my glass of Chateauneuf de Pape was beyond description. Just ............perfect. The "rice bali" is just as phenomenal. Like I said, I CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN.
So delicious! Our second time there was even better than the first. We never had Indonesian food before, but this will be one of our "go-to" places!
It was our first time there, and we tried the meal for two which included an appetizer and everything was great. Next time we will go with the mild, and we will be going back as there were other things we wanted to try
We were looking for a dining adventure and decided to try Indonesian cuisine. The restaurant is cozy with nice Southeast Asia accents. Mike one of the owners welcomed us and explained the cuisine. Our server gave us some good recommendations and we decided to try the lamb and beef platter for two people. The flavors were a fantastic blend of sweet, aromatic and heat. The beef was specially tender. Overall great experience and can’t wait to return and sample more dishes. Do not forget to try their desert.
das zweite Mal und wiederum sehr gutes und geschmackvolles und reichliches Essen
obwohl der arme Kellner beide Hände ( viel zu viel als einziger mit über 20 Gästen ) voll zu tun hatte, blieb er ruhig und freundlich, aufmerksam und lächeönd!
Loved the place! We're visiting from Dallas and found this on Google. We are a vegetarian/meat-eater couple and there were plenty of options for both of us (and they took special care to ensure they met the dietary preferences for each course). Presentation was beautiful. Food was delicious. Ingredients and flavors came through wonderfully with each dish. A nice atmosphere with lots of traditional decorations. Service was excellent. Would definitely come back again.
excellent food and service every time I eat here. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone
Every dish was a home run. What sounds simple on the menu is anything but that once tasted. Complex and satisfying flavor pallets are hidden in every bite. We recommended Krakatoa Indonesian to our chef friend even before our meal was through. Absolutely want to go back!
We love Kratatoa. The owner and servers make you feel at home and will help explain the menu if you're unfamiliar with Indonesian cuisine. The food is delicious and the staff is very accommodating - both in terms of preparing your meal (spice level) and making sure your party is comfortable. We've been here several times and unfortunately this last time there was a small issue with our waiter (which was very unusual). The owner noticed immediately and stepped in before we even had a chance to flag the issue. He bent over backwards to remedy the issue and make our dinner memorable. It was a great example of how wonderful customer service can really make an evening!
Can't say enough wonderful things about Krakatoa!! Just be sure to make a reservation, especially on the busy weekend nights... It can get crowded and it's a small establishment.
Everything was so great! We ordered what the waiter recommended because this was our first time eating Indonesian food. Wonderful. The avocado and oreo dessert is a must!
It is fairly new spot to Hollywood but I’ve been there at least 5 times for dinner in less than 4months food is magnificent
The six of us enjoyed a wonder creative meal at Krakatoa Friday night. We ordered two riscestaphles dinners which were composed of three main dishes, lamb, beef and chicken skewers plus rice, Salad, and rice wafers. All with different sauces. Each dish was delicious. Our appetizers were Bali Bali, fried vegetable pancakes and fried tofu in tamarind sauce. The meal was inexpensive.
Service was great, and the room was quiet. We all plan to return.
This restaurant is fabulous! Very interesting flavors and delicious combinations. I highly recommend Krakatoa! You will love this restaurant!!!
Indonesian food is my new favorite food. It’s fresh and flavorful. We enjoyed meat, fish and vegetarian dishes that all had subtle fragrances and surprising blends of spices that were delightful. The staff is warm and knowledgable . We found an inexpensive parking garage just around the corner so parking was cheap and easy. We are planning to go back frequently.
What an absolute delight, the flavors and textures were perfection. The owner John and our server O’Ryan(sp?) were kind, attentive but not suffocating and extremely knowledgeable. This was my best dining experience in south Florida for 2019!
Excellent food and service. The food was both flavorful and beautifully presented. Went with a group of 8 and everyone truly enjoyed their dishes.
You would be pleasantly surprised with the food quality and flavor. Its awesome
The food is fresh and delicious! They spice the food to your likings. Krakatoa is my go to restaurant with all my visiting guests. The service is over the top! I recommend Krakatoa to anyone looking for a unique tasty food experience with an ambiance to enjoy your company and your meal.
I lived in Indonesia for 11 years, and the food at Krakatoa was like HEAVEN. We will definitely be back. Plus, who knew Hollywood FL had such an adorable historic downtown area???
This restaurant is delicious. The corn fritter appetizer is a must try. The chicken satay is also an excellent dish.
Love this place! The food is amazing and the service is great. The flavors of the food are like nothing else.
Excellent food and service. The dessert was amazing (six feet under).
Great food and reasonably priced. Certainly one of the best restaurants in Broward County. The only drawbacks are it is small and it does not have a full bar. Even with those limits, it is worth a visit and we plan to return again and again!
Great food, great service, good location! A must try.
Food excellent and different. Very good
Great food with great flavor.Service was on point.Just a great little place.
First time at this restaurant and will definitely go back. Good is flavorful and cooked to perfection. Our server was attentive and helpful with food selection.
This was the 3rd time at this restaurant the food, the service is always on point. I will be returning.
Wow!!! The flavors were amazing. So lovely to get authentic Indonesian food by only going to the next zip code!! ;) Would recommend for anytime. I will return to keep tasting everything on the menu! :)
The service was friendly, attentive, and timely. It was so easy to converse and enjoy ourselves. It’s a happy and relaxing atmosphere to dine in and the food was terrific.
Had a great experience with wonderful food and service.
