I was in awe before I entered with kaleidoscopic lanterns hanging in the trees. As you enter you are wowwed with its decor, colour, design and artefacts. Serving Imperial Indonesian cuisine, I was made to feel like a king by the friendly and courteous waiting staff. The menu has much to offer and will easily satisfy anyone no matter how... More

In one word: YUM! I wish I had the patience to stay in Jakarta longer, just so I could try all of the different dishes at this restaurant. Definitely get the beef rendang. I could have licked the banana leaf it was served on. Eat it with the coconut rice, and you won’t be disappointed. My friends and I ordered... More

I would come here for the visual experience alone - gorgeous, rich colors, wonderful objets and artwork - a maze of rooms that are each a feast for the eyes. And private spaces for small groups where you can soak in the atmosphere in relative privacy. Make sure you arrive with tie to enjoy a drink in the beautiful bar,... More

A restaurant spread over 4 -5 rooms with a vivid colorful and striking decor with Buddhist - Oriental roots which grips the eyes and ones imagination. Even the restrooms are done up beautifully. The food is authentic Indonesian served exquisitely on a bed of sea shells and good for the gourmet or the gourmand. Loved the place and the food

I would say the food here is a little bit expensive, but they are all worth every penny. While you might find bunch of overpriced restaurants in town, this place offers you a very authentic taste in a mystique but soothing atmosphere. The staffs are extremely friendly and easy to talk with (I was once organizing a farewell party there).... More

You will feel the mysterious atmosphere, not just when you walk into the restaurant, but it stars when you park ur car in the parking lot under the ancient big tree. Get inside you will find amazing decoration and unique artsy thematic room, such as Soekarno, Buddha, kind of Chinese/Peranakan Kingdom, Retro Indonesia, etc. They blended perfectly into one undescribable...

The big trees on the parking lot are daunting, which adds to the mystery of what lies inside. Walk into the front door, any of them, and you will find yourself in another world, Indonesia circa one hundred years ago. Everything from what you see, the floor that you walk on, the aroma that you smell, the tables and chairs... More

The food was fantastic, ranging from a very tasty and mild prawn sate to a spicy tuna fish dish. I really loved how the dishes in the menu were labelled with their origins as they helped us to get a feeling for the vast diversity of Indonesian cuisine. The presentation of the dishes was also very innovative, using beautiful shells... More
