I flew to Jakarta and my boyfriend decided to suprise me with an anniversary dinner here upon hearing the great reviews he read online. I was pleasantly suprised when we reached as the interior was totally rustic & beautiful, a little cross between an asian civilisation museum and a restaurant. In addition, the space was big too! Now when it... More

Dear Stoufensen, What a lovely review and very kind words. We truly appreciate your review and the time spent with us. The restaurant itself has a completely different atmosphere during the evenings so if you do get the chance to try a dinner time you will see almost a different restaurant but with the same traditions.

From the lovely old hanging tree vines out the front, to the fish ponds inside, this place is just a pleasure to go to. You wont see a bigger menu anywhere in my opinion. Its like a Tome.

I regularly take business guests from abroad to Lara for a taste of Indonesia. It has always been as much about the location as the food. The service has always been slow and relaxed. Tonight not only was the service much faster and more attentive but also the food was finally as good as the surroundings. It is clear that... More

After traveling for two weeks through Indonesia this restaurant at our last evening in Jakarta was a disappointment compared to the experiences we had during our trip. Decoration and ambience are nice, but service and food quality are far below what we expected for this price. Especially the prawns and beef were not fresh and didn't taste very delicious.

As usual with the Tunggu group, the atmosphere is relaxing and lovely. Our food was quite good. In the past it was more fair+ , but I hope the improvement isn't temporary. There's a happy hour, and the drinks are 2 for 1...but they have a strict policy of the same drink..so even if your drink is terrible they won't... More

Upon entering the restaurant one would already enjoyed how amazing the ambience they put up with. It was beautifully decorated with mixed influence of Indonesian, Chinese, Indian and a bit of Dutch colony. However at some corner probably too much that would scare off kids when you drag them here for dinner, well I don't think this is a kids-friendly... More
