An Indonesian Treat @IR1968

Address: 5/F the L- Place, 139 Queen’s Road, Central   /  IR1968 Facebook

Originally a family-run restaurant in Indonesia, this quaint eatery dishes up authentic Indonesian delights filled with flavors that will tickle your tastebuds. Some might argue that their choice of decor is a bit ‘kitch’, but why not add a few wooden carts and rickshaws to immerse guests in the experience?

Opened in 2011, IR1968 eventually moved from Causeway bay to its newer and current location, L Place. Their menu offers classic favorites like Sour and Spicy Fish Fillet, Rice paper rolls, Nasi Goreng and Ayam Goreng, as well as more modern twists like Iberico Pork satays.

IR1968 is great hang-out space for those who seek authentic flavors. Great service and tasty food all-round in a more modern yet cosy setting, than the traditional roadside diner. They serve both lunch sets, that are of great value, and dinner, and are also available on Foodpanda!


NASI HAINAN AYAM – Hainan chicken rice (boneless)

  • Tender Chicken braised in its own juices, paired with spicy sambal and soy dressing.
  • A classic Asian dish that is common in Indonesia, Malaysia and Hong Kong! Delicious and light option, that isn’t at all spicy (except the sambal)!


Beef Shank Rendang

  • Slow braised beef that is full of spices.
  • Could have been more tender and soft.

SAYAP GORENG PEDAS – Fried indonesian wings with chilli sauce

  • Can’t wrong with fried chicken!
  • De-boned and shaped into lollipops, making it much easier to eat.
  • Crispy batter and tender chicken, arriving hot and freshly fried in front of you. NOM.

1968 LAKSA LAUT– Laksa coconut shrimp soup noodle with seafood

  • Generous seafood and noodle offered in the Laksa, though not as good as ones from Malaysian restaurants.
  • Not spicy and soup could’ve done with more coconut and seasoning. Soup was also a bit thin.

TERONG GORENG –Stir fried eggplant & lady finger with basil

  • Tasty vegetable dish that goes perfectly with a bowl of steamed rice!
  • Tender lady fingers stir fried with eggplants and spices.
