Very humble and small restaurant located within an old mall in the middle of town. Great spot if you're looking for authentic Indonesian dishes. The food here is great albeit the long waiting time when there is crowd. Their murtabak manis is totally worth the calories and their teh sosro is super good too. Tip: Highly recommended to make reservations if you wish to dine in, or order in advance if you wish to takeaway. It can get really really busy especially during weekday afternoons and weekends.

The chicken tasted so good, crispy on the outside while tender in the inside. The chicken was also well seasoned. The noodles were springy. Would highly recommend this place and come back again.

Cheaper food option with good quality in Orchard. (About $7-$8/main course) Bakmi’s chilli is very shiok. The noodles itself a bit soft to me. Batagor is a bit special to me. I don’t think I could find the “tofu” 😅 But taste not that bad actually.

Indonesian snack noodle. Not bad and cheap. Just not for daily meal. Noodle and others range from 6.50 to 12. Drinks as Low as 1.20.

Visited on a Thursday late afternoon and the place was quite busy. A fairly large hole in the wall kinda establishment, the ambience is cozy. I ordered the Bakmie Ayam Cabe Ijo ($5.90) and Keju Martabak ($6.20). The noodles were topped with this fragrant mix of chicken and scallions. Personally I felt that the noodles were a bit too hard, will definitely opt for softer noodles the next time I visit. The cabe ijo (green chili) mix was savory and spicy which really lifted the entire bowl. The keju martabak was thick, fluffy and rich. It was the perfect balance between salty and sweet as the cheese and condensed milk melted together. It can get a bit heavy, so do get it to share! Overall a really good meal, this is the closest I can get to Indonesian food. Definitely can't compare to the food I have in Medan, but this will have to do in a pinch for now. Will recommend to my family and friends.

Introduced to this Indonesian Bakmie (noodles) by an ex-colleague years ago and I’m happy to know that it’s still operating! Good quality chicken and noodles used to make their dishes and flavour is authentic too! Today’s noodles were a little over cooked and the flavour is still there. They offer sweet black sauce for the true blue Indonesians who love them with their bakmie!

If you are in town and craving for some Bakmi and Martabak? Drop by Jtown cafe! They serve rather authentic Indonesian food prepared with Indonesian ingredients and spices. Of course, you need to complete your experience with Teh Botol. 😋 #sedap The only downside is the ventilation within the building or the area outside the shop. You may not feel comfortable while walking into the building but once you stepped into the shop. You will be greeted by their warm and welcoming staff as well as the fragrance of the spices emitted from the food preparation. The poor ventilation will not be bothersome nor an issue. 🥹 Do give them a visit! 🙏👍

It is said that money can’t buy happiness, but at JTown, it costs me less than $10. The crispy chicken and aromatic sambal belado that pairs in perfect harmony, the warm fluffy murtabak, the fried dumplings that remind you of home, and the warm Indonesian hospitality that almost always grants me an extra bowl of their addictive soup. Money can’t buy happiness, but JTown sure puts a smile on my face.

Sedap martabak manis! Not the healthiest I know, but once in a while OK lah. Just take black tea after, without sugar. Smaller in size than others in the vicinity, but priced accordingly. More buttery, and equally messy. Lezat! Have yet to try their other food dishes.

No nonsense. Excellent Bakmie Ayam! Noodle was al dente, sauce was flavourful. The sauce coated the noodles well and very complimentary! Expecting the soup to be a filler soup but NO! So flavourful too! The green tea was sweet but cuts through the salty noodles so well. Quiet little corner in Mid Point Orchard, gives me old school diner vibes. A cheap and good eat in Orchard Road! Must visit! Wow! Recommend!

Underrated authentic Indonesian eatery in the Orchard area. First time here but enjoyed the signature Bakmie Ayam! 🐓 noodles were handmade and super QQ, texture’s just amazing! 🤩 there was also enough minced chicken to go around! Highly recommend! 😀😀

$10.30 for noodle and drink. The staff is very friendly and patient to explain to me the menu, and also help me carry the food and no need to return tray.

Extremely appetising noodles with excellent sauce. There was a queue when we visited around 19:00 on weekdays, while the waiting time wasn’t too long.

They have kept prices pretty much the same since before covid, although i have yet to go since 2019. Taste wise has changed so much, not for the better unfortunately. Beef bakso was just chewing powdered mould of flour, noodles lack the taste as compared to years ago overly sweet in fact and the belachan was bitter not spicy. Good thing is the portion are huge, really can keep a hungry man happy. Hope something can be done about the taste standards though.

The fried chicken was a bit dry, but the chili was pretty good and spicy.

The food here is really good! It’s a small eatery at the basement of midtown orchard. Their noodles are nice and “bouncy” and the meat is tender. They have different types of noodle dishes with different spice levels to cater to all. I would recommend their fried chicken noodle - really good!!!

Nice and light chicken (?) broth and good amount of noodles. The dumplings were fried fresh, crunchy, and nice. Simple interior but perfect as street food eatery. Service was great! Must come again.

Located in Somerset, the store is easily spotted on the basement level. It's big, spacious, and has many seats available. They offer a wide variety of Indonesian noodles (bakmi), mostly spicy. Bakmi ayam popcorn is a good choice if you don't like spicy food. Complement your meal with crackers and teh botol Sosro. The staff provides good service. Highly recommended!

Popular lunch place in the basement of Midpoint Orchard. Come early to avoid waiting for a table. Bakmie Ayam Balado is very spicy, while Bakmie Ayam Cabe Ijo is not spicy enough. If they can come out with something with the spiciness level in between will be great. Very sweet Martabak Manis is also available here

This place has been around forever and this is the first time I’m trying it after more than 10 years in Singapore. Located within Midpoint Orchard in the basement area opposite the food court. The fried crispy chicken with rice was divine. Served with a thick sweet sauce and some crunchy onions, it really ties everything together. The Green chili bak mie was quite spicy even though it doesn’t look like it. Noodles were bouncy and delicious. The minced chicken was seasoned very well in the sauce as well. As recommended by many people, I decided to try the meat balls as well. I’m happy to say I’m not disappointed. Delicious meal with wallet friendly prices in the heart of Orchard

I quite like the Bakmie, it reminds me of kolo mee. The noodles is springy and tasty. 6.90 is quite ex but still ok. maybe the rental cost is high. I might come here for the bakmie again if I don’t know what to eat in orchard or crave for it. But wont order the teh tarik, tasted instant and sweet…
