Krakatoa Indonesian Cuisine serves some of the most flavorful foods from Indonesia. We specialize in flavors from the area of Sumbawa Island Indonesia. Many dishes are inspired by the chef's memories and experiences as a child. Flavors of lemon grass, kaffir lime, coconut milk, coriander, and cumin meander through the menu. Krakatoa offers a variety of dishes, including vegetarian dishes exploding with flavor. All of our dishes are unique and cooked to order so they are the freshest possible when they arrive to your table. If you are looking for something new and different come join us in our cozy little restaurant. Experience a little bit of Indonesia not only in our food but our atmosphere where we have brought some items from our travels with many pictures to see and a big map of Indonesia that is sure to spark a conversation. We look forward to serving you.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
