Cali Deli a hidden gem offering Western style sandwiches

We found this by accident..... They have wonderful sandwiches on the most delicious French bread I have found in Jakarta. Wide variety of choices, mostly geared to Indonesian taste but try the smoked turkey. Fillings are mostly veggies and salad with only a hint of meat, but the bread more than... read more

Decent restaurant with decent Vietnamese stye sandwiches. There is nothing else to order except for their sandwiches. I reckon they have to improve other menus, because I do not think that those menus are worth of ordering (unless you are extremely in an urgent situation). The venue is good though. It's quite private and the garden provides a cool temperature... More

Best Bahn Mi (lemongrass is awesome), but the bread is so fresh (believe it's made on site) that you can't go wrong with any sandwich. There's always a fan blowing mist around the outside which makes it a comfortable shaded outdoor eating area any time of day. Good choice of drinks and excellent Vietnamese iced coffee as well.

There are a few branches of Cali Deli around town. But this is the best outlet considering its homey setting. When eating there, you will have a chance to meet the owner of this restaurant who has a strong tie with Vietnam. A highly recommended for BanhMi (Vietnamese baquette sandwich) in town.

well, basically because I have no idea where I could get Vietnamese sandwich aside from Cali Deli in Jakarta. But I love their sandwich, it's so good. I am a sucker for sandwich, I love how western taste could be good together with eastern spices. Very delicious. The venue in Menteng is the best one amongst other Cali Deli joints.... More

This is the best sandwich that I have had yet in Indonesia. Fresh, crisp French bread, fresh veggies, well seasoned chicken and a bold but not overpowering sauce. Would definitely return!
