A great place to start. Whether you have just arrived to Indonesia or are on the way out, Lara Djonggrang will be a great introduction, or a nice last Indonesian meal to remember. Friendly helpful staff, great food, while surrounded by ethnic decor with a dramatic flare.

reat dinner in this visually opulent space. Indonesian art, koi ponds, shadowy nooks, plants and carved demons make this restaurant a feast for the eyes. Cuisine is representative of regions, served on carved wooden platters on green leaves. Lovely and delicious. Highly recommended.
