Must try. The most authentic Indonesian food

This is one of my favorite restaurant. Good ambience, very authentic Indonesian food and delicious. There are wide selection of menus and they keep refresh it. Many menus here you hardly find in another restaurant. Must try!

Great decor and interesting rooms throughout. And the food presented beautifully and exceedingly tasty. And none of the patronizing 'tuts' when I ask for it not to be spicy - just good service. Expensive for Jakarta but still good value for foreigners.

Went for a birthday meal with my friend. It's a great place to enjoy the decor and food presentation. The only thing is its a pity the food is always too salty. Otherwise a place that all should visit.

That sounds very patronizing but it's the way it is; not many locals will come here. It is very expensive, but it does give a good flavor of the traditional Indonesian cuisine. And the atmosphere is nice as well (although the music can drive you crazy after some time and the rooms are rather bright). Nowadays I take visitors to... More

Insisted my Indonesian colleague took us somewhere representing local cuisine This place grabs you as you step out of the cab and holds you with surprises in decor and food until you leave Great selection by waiters meant we truly had a memorable meal at a very reasonable price

Interesting Indonesian menu is impressive and well executed but the highlight is the decor, particularly out the back. Visitors to Jakarta will love it and not far from central Jakarta hotels. Easy to get taxis.

This is the restaurant where I often invite my colleagues to dine here. All of them were satisfied. There are many dishes you can choose. The presentation is very amazing. I would love to eat single dish package since it includes variety of small dish with special rice. Recommended to try. Dont forget to book, especially on the weekend.

Our hosts said the food was good, but the décor sold the place. Granted, I loved the décor - but I also loved the food. Yes, it is overpriced by local standards. But if you are a foreign traveler and don't know the ins and outs of the back streets of Jakarta to find a good "local" place, Lara Djonggrang... More
