The food at this unassuming Indonesian eatery is so diverse and remarkable that the Chronicle critics named chef Johanes Mulja Di as one of Austin's two best chefs in Java's first year of business. Traditional Indonesian dishes presented here are perfectly seasoned, spicy, and full-flavored without being too fiery. The $6.95 Sunday brunch buffet has to be one of the city's best bargains, but get there early before all the good stuff is gone. The owners have also opened the new Java Market retail store a couple of doors down from the restaurant.
