Good examples of classic Malaysian dishes. Roti canai, nasi lemak, and satay. Very nicely cooked and beatifully presented. Quickly prepared and served. All tasted excellent. There were several types of laksa that looked interesting. There will be a next time.

Go-to lunch spot in central Jakarta. Try the roti canai and bistro chicken. I actually haven't found anything I didn't like here, but few exceptional dishes.

The best in the area, food is good! Range of offers is quite wide, there is sea food offers, fish, prawns etc. Besides prices are not high, lower than you can typically get in your hotel.

The service is great, food is great, what can I say more? They got private rooms for private gatherings, say you want to dine in with colleagues or family.
