Fabulous authentic Indonesian food

If you are staying in one of the international hotels nearby, don't eat in your hotel, go here. Relaxed atmosphere and fabulous food. Extensive menu too, so you could eat here more than once...

Harum Manis is worth a visit: the food is well presented and reflects a superior understanding of Indonesian cuisine. We had fish, various sate, nasi liwet and a selection of starters - all well prepared and tasty. The service was attentive and flawless, and the atmosphere is nice. To be recommended.

Supposedly Bill Clinton came here for his Indonesian food-and if that isn't true- it should be,, because this is the place for a fine hand on the spices and creativity possible in traditional dishes. There are nice private rooms here- or a big boisterous dining room that can have singing and dancing in it, with everyone joining in the fun.... More

Had a really good bebek (duck) panggang dish where the duck was cooked on a bed of rice. The lamb sate was also really excellent. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

We brought our Senior Leader from Head Office to the Restaurant as we wish him experience a good Indonesian food and great ambience. Thank God, Harum Manis has saved our face. The food we ordered came in time with attractive presentation and just-right-taste for him and of course us. The ambience is also very warm and friendly. The live music... More

Average taste, expensive price. Not value for money. Nice ambiance, average service. The taste of the food is just OK, nothing really special.

Harum Manis is easily my favourite restaurant in Jakarta. The food is absolutely delicious! We had mie goreng jawa and nasi goreng laut, both of which were truly excellent, and for desert Daeng Es Podeng, which was light, beautifully presented, and extremely tasty. The place itself is beautifully decorated, and the table setting spotless. What really sets this place apart... More
