We went to this hotel with some friends. The decor was awe inspiring with a lot of antique looking art. There was a lot of water and lanterns to help set the mood. we were definitely impressed when we walked in. The service we received was equally as good as the ambiance. There was a very wide range of Indonesian... More

This restaurant is just lovely, it tries to be very authentic Indonesian (and does quite well in my opinion). It is owned by some hotel group who have a nice story about the background of the place in the front of the menu. The food was exquisite, I'd recommend getting a rice platter, as it's a bit like tapas and... More

An Indonesian friend of mine took me to this place because she knew that I wanted to go somewhere that is authentic Indonesian cooking. I was not disappointed. The food was excellent. And the ambience was even better. This would be a romantic place for a couple. Also, this would be a good place for a quiet, intimate dinner for... More

The restaurant offers original Indonesian fare in a setting that is surrounded with historical artifacts and antiques. The menu is diverse and the food is beautifully cooked and presented. I would reccomend the seafood - soft shell crab, prawns in a delicious sambal and squid were stunning. The decor and furniture is reminiscent of a grand old house and certainly... More

This is an excellent spot to have dinner as a couple or in a group. There are two key areas of the building, one a more formal dining room and the other an open-air bar/lounge area. The food and service were very good!

This restaurant has many foreigners visitor that would like to experience Indonesian food.

The food here do not taste like the original one, but become very mild compare to the original Indonesian food. However for the ambience and decoration, the concept is... More

An interesting and historical ambience for a great meal. Quite enough for a intimate get-together with your spouse, friends or business meeting. Management should do something about the mosquitos - who seem to be voracious there, Good service and overall a pleasant experience!!!
