A Kantjil is a small deer, and the Tiger, yeah that’s the tiger, but the fairytale talks about this small but extremely smart deer, which remains alive after all. This Indonesian restaurant is located on a busy spot in heart of the city.
Kantjil & de Tijger serve traditional good Indonesian food. Recommendable is the “Rijsttafel” Kantjil, with several small dishes. Rijsttafel is actually a Dutch phenomenon: we introduced this way of having & sharing dinner during the time Indonesia was a Dutch colony.
They serve great Lumpia Semarang. The Kredok, which is a salad but Indonesian style & the Peteh Oedang are among my favorite dishes in this busy and popular restaurant. Just around the corner, they opened an easy take away for servings of mixed rice or mie dishes.
Good food & value for money. Always busy so sometimes you have to wait a while!
