Garut Restaurants

  • Lunch at Candi Cangkuang

    Near the parking of Candi Cangkuang (see tip) is an attractive and cheap lesehan restaurant, serving Sundanese food as well as the common mi and nasi goreng.Nice for a bite when you happen to be here at lunch-time.

  • Quiet courtyard, good food

    When we pass through Garut, this is our favourite restaurant. We take a table in the courtyard behind the restaurant building, and enjoy the green plants and the fish in the pond. The service is very friendly and attentive. The food is good an cheap, a lot of small items on the menu, from which you can assemble your own combination.

    Nice shop, but sometimes too much Indian stuff..
    however, you still find some local craft with reasonable price.
    Lots of accessories as well.

    What to buy: Leather things.

    What to pay: Make sure you bargain, because it's bargain-able.
