The first Malioboro Restaurant was opened in January, 2000 at Jalan Kediri 50, Kuta, Bali in January 2000 and shortly followed by the opening of another restaurant named Hayam Wuruk on June 24, 2000 located at Jalan Hayam Wuruk 88, Denpasar, Bali, taking the street’s name as its brand. We provided our customers with delicious soft bone chickens as our unique signature dish. The chicken was marinated with our special recipe and pressure-cooked to ensure that the whole chicken, including the bones, was soft and edible. The soft bone chicken turned out to be a favourite cuisine among residents and since Bali is a hugely popular holiday destination, it was also a hit among tourists, thus attracting many loyal customers worldwide.

Our unique products, combined with its special taste, creates a strong product differentiation strategy for our restaurants that is unlike other regular fried chicken with hard, inedible bones. At this moment, Malioboro and Hayam Wuruk restaurant chain has twenty outlets in Bali, Jakarta, Surabaya, Bekasi, Tangerang, Depok, Padang, Pekanbaru, and Yogyakarta. The growth of Malioboro and Hayam Wuruk restaurants in the past thirteen years is a great testimony of public acceptance of the excellent taste, warm atmosphere, and reasonable price of our restaurants.

Due to popular demands from our customers that come from around the worlds, starting 2007, we started to plan for expanding our business beyond Indonesia. In 2012, we decided to open our first international outlet in Singapore and we carefully prepare for everything down to every last bit of ingredients to make sure we can deliver the same quality of food to our Singapore’s customers. Our efforts become fruitful in 8 November 2012 when finally our restaurant was open in Feast @ Jurong Point Shopping Centre. We commit in delivering high quality food with unique taste and reasonable price to our customers.

Soft bone will melt your heart!

I was walking around jurong point when I chance upon this very difficult to pronounce food outlet name , sophisticatedly called the MALIOBORO soft boned chicken Singapore. I was wondering to myself, should I or should I not take the chance and try something that i have never heard of before in Singapore, I might be a hit, or I might be a miss, but gladly, I wasn't disappointed at all, in fact I was very very glad and proud that I found myself a go to place in the west to satisfy my craving for Ayam penyet but cooked in a very unique style. The chicken bones are very soft and its edible and tastes incredible and the best part is the salted egg sauce poured on top of the chicken to complete the dish, its so scrumptious and the presentation of the dish already satisfies the hunger in my eyes even before I started eating. The sambal wasn't that spicy but who needs that when the dish on its own is complete. It is a must try for those who are tired of conventional and cliche foods. This is located at jurong point, just beside boon lay mrt. The soft bone chicken dish will soften your heart most probably!

Tucked away at the 3rd level of Jurong Point new wing, This restaurant is not easy to find. A friend introduced me to try the soft bone chicken rice. Acceptable array of menu and I ordered the soft bone chicken rice with mango salad. Presentation of food is good but the serving may be a tad too little for the price. (see picture below)The only good thing is that the chicken served lived up to its name.. It's really soft and tender and really easy to eat especially for the kids!

After hearing the rave about this "awesome" food restaurant, I went ahead to find Where it was located. So the one I went to was at Jurong point.
 Price wise it was a little pricy for the amount of food I received on the plate. The food and presentation on the menu was amazing and appetizing but when it was served it felt like I was deceived and cheated from.
 I ordered the salted chicken meal set. And I was so disappointed. The rice was not even enough for me, a few bites of the rice and It's all gone. The lettuce and cucumber was so small even my rabbit wouldn't want to eat it. And oh my, the cherry tomato was a shock. The cherry tomato was as small as 5 cents coin.
 I asked for extra rice and I received a small amount of it for $1.00, very pricy.
 I also wanted to ask for extra chilli, but for the amount they are serving, $1.50 is too much.
 This was the worst among all, I peeped into the kitchen and.. everything was a mess. They weren't even wearing gloves! My God.
 So the verdict is, don't eat here.
 Presentation is c***, It's super pricy for the amount you are receiving. And It's not worth your money

Dear N.Hans Bmz, Thank you for reviewing our restaurant. There are 2 parts of the chicken that customers can opt for: breast or thigh. The breast is always much bigger than the thigh. If there is no special request, the part being served will be at random. Based on your description, we believe that you were being served with the thigh and hence, smaller portion. Please don't hesitate to inform us your special request. Also, our chicken is pressured cooked. So, our chicken will look smaller than normal ayam penyet after the process. We hope this clarifies. We will highlight your experience to our team to prevent such issues from happening again. We will ensure that our team keeps maintaining proper hygiene and providing a good dining experience. As a gesture of goodwill, we are pleased to extend complimentary dining vouchers to you. Please write to us at for the vouchers. Yours sincerely, Fanny Manager Malioboro Soft Bone Chicken

Having seen the good reviews here, I decided to give it a try. Staff is indeed helpful and cheerful. They quickly set me down in a seat and wasted no time introducing their signature salted egg chicken set to me. Interesting! Never tried anything like it before so I decided to go with their recommendations without looking at the menu. Food eventually came and it didn't really look like those in the pictures taken by Mr Runningman in his blog. Firstly the sauce was not a lot. The rice was a bit too little for me. The chicken was dry on the inside but tasted pretty decent when paired with the delicious salted egg sauce. But less than halfway through the sauce ran out and I wanted to ask for more sauce. Turns out they charge $2 for extra sauce; I hadn't looked at the menu previously. The helpful staff offered some sweet sauce to go with the chicken when I commented it was too dry. In any case, I soldiered on and continued with the meal. The chicken skin still retains it's crispness and as claimed, the bones are really soft. Nothing is wasted. The sambal is average. Maybe standards have dropped since the sterling reviews a couple of years ago, as evidenced by the near empty restaurant. For the price paid perhaps you're better off eating something else.
