Rinjani has garnered rave reviews thus far, with a 4.5-star rating out of nine reviews on Yelp.

Mark R., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on January 1st, said: "If you're tired of eating in restaurants where every dish tastes the same, give Rinjani a try! Every item has its own unique (delicious) flavor and the presentation is as good as it tastes."

Yelper Sean B. added: "To be fair, this is the first time I've tried Indonesian food, so I thought the flavors might be akin to southeast Asian. I ordered the crispy noodles with chicken, and thought it was good."

And Deden P. said: "The most authentic Indonesian restaurant in Glendale and LA area. It's affordable and great ambiance with beautiful decor that allows you to know more about Indonesian culture."

Head on over to check it out: Rinjani is open weekdays from 11am-3:30pm, Monday-Thursday from 5pm-9:30pm, Saturday from noon-3:30pm and Friday, and Saturday from 5pm-10pm.
