I've heard the hype of this place and been wanting to come here. Long story short year-end team dinner was well organized to take place here. Unexpectedly it turned out to be an extremely disappointing experience with service from the staff. First they asked us to search the menu from their website, when we submitted our choices on midday, they... More

Dear Pak Wido It's very unfortunate that a misunderstanding by our generally Indonesian Speaking staff brought our esteemed customers to this situation, while owners and management instructions are very candidly specific to send a la carte menu to prospective customers without hesitation once the customers contacts are genuinely established and they wish to have the same. We feel truly apologetic... More

It took me more than a year to come back to this brilliant place at the Lippo Mall, Kemang Village. It looks awesome with the addition of awnings which prompted us to sit outside on the terrace not to be afraid of the rains etc. It was a lovely evening: a bit of breeze and a clouds lurking in the...

We have been here many times and every time we hope it will get better. The food is good, it has some really nice touches on each dish although sometimes this can end up giving you something unexpected (either good or bad). The problem is ... The service is really bad. The waiters are on total autopilot. Ask what beer... More

After a recommendation of an expat friend, visited last week with my Girl Friend. We both loved food, ambience, service (Considering we are in Jakarta where it needs a major uplift in service levels) and after the start of street side parking since last week past 9 pm, it's like visiting any road side evidence. Craved to return next evening... More

My friends and I went here for dinner one evening, and we were very disappointed. We sat ourselves and were never once offered menus. After ordering drinks we were never offered food menus. The food was just alright (extremely fishy caesar salad and extremely spicy pasta arrabiata). Our final round of drinks was forgotten about apparently - we waited 30... More
