How about the food? Maybe bevause I came there for the breakfasting, then it's not tasted so special for me. But the ambiance, the place is magnificent.

The food was so well prepared and presented and service was so attentive, polite and friendly! The only negative was the ice-cream came out of the machine without the ice and was just running cream but perhaps that was telling me that it was fattening and I shouldn't be having it anyway!

Bengawan is one of those buffet restaurant that makes you linger as long as you could. They serve most of the dish raw so that we could choose what they are going to cook for us - personally. They even take breakfast buffet to the next level by providing à la carte menu with amazing produce such as Wagyu Beef,... More

In Jakarta, I have tried most of the weekend brunches. The Keraton has one of the best! It is more lunch then breakfast oriented (although they do offer an eggs benedict). The seafood was amazing--king crab legs the size of my arm, lobster claws, oysters, sushi, scallop, caviar, grilled lobster, lobster thermidor, branzino and many more. Kobe beef, Australian tenderloin,... More

Why 1-star? - Simply because they served under cooked nasi goreng. Even the chicken satay that comes with it was under cooked. - See the attached pictures. Other feedback - Dine at this restaurant a number of times. Staff is always very polite and helpful. Reasonable prices and decent ambiance.

for a restaurant in so premium a property, this is dirt cheap. They have a preset Mexican menu for dinner which is for only 150k and includes soups/ salad, main course and dessert. Options for main course are plenty. We ordered soup, chicken fajita, chicken quesadilla, guacamole and chocolate flan. Best - guacamole with chips...it was chips as the chips... More
