To provide an intimate atmosphere, Candi Tirto Raharjo and Nanduto Home Cooking arrange the private dinner, #MakanBersama, by reservation only. You won’t find other guests at your table, which adds an exclusive ambiance to your dining space. You need to make a reservation in advance, via WhatsApp, and a minimum of 10 guests are required for a reservation. Many organizations and offices book #MakanBersama to host intimate events and gatherings.

2 | It serves a delectable menu

Nanduto Home Cooking prepares the food for #MakanBersama. For each reservation, Nanduto Home Cooking offers 5 set menus and each menu includes an appetizer, a main course, a dessert, and 2 types of beverages. You can choose one of the 5 set menus or you can combine them according to your own personal preference. The menus consist of Indonesian dishes served in an elegant way. In addition, the food served here is not individually plated but placed in the middle of the table because the main concept of #MakanBersama is eating meals together with close friends or family.

3 | There’s a story behind each dish

Another highlight of Nanduto Home Cooking is the owner and main chef Nanda, who will tell you the stories behind the tasty dishes available on the menu. He will explain how the ingredients are selected and why he cooks these dishes. You can make small talk with him and learn the history or even the recipes of the delicious meals. Sounds great, doesn't it?

4 | You can enjoy your meal with a beautiful view of the temple

The best thing about #MakanBersama is that you can enjoy delicious meals while looking at the Tirto Raharjo Temple in Jalan Kasongan Tirto, Bantul, Yogyakarta. It is the first Meeting, Incentive, Convention, and Exhibition (MICE) venue with a temple. This venue is usually booked for weddings, private dinners, and family gatherings, etc. People can enjoy the wonderful view of the temple, the fresh air, and the tasty food in a nice and intimate atmosphere.

History of Tirto Raharjo Temple

There is a romantic story behind the construction of the Tirto Raharjo Temple complex which consists of three temples. These temples were actually a gift from the owner, Mr. Timbul, to his wife Mrs. Ani Faiqoh for their 25th wedding anniversary.

Mr. Timbul wanted to build a temple that could be used for worship. It took a long process for his wish to come true. Mr. Timbul had to fulfill some requirements, such as building a yoni (a place to put a square phallus), a phallus (statue for worship), and a peripih (grains, beads, or thin gold plates). It is believed that a temple without a peripih is like a body without soul. That's why he gave the temple a gold peripih. Now, people come and worship at the Tirto Raharjo Temple.
