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.

We went here on our first night in Jakarta being a bit too shy to try street food and really enjoyed ourselves. The restaurant is very grand but the food we thought very reasonably priced. It's more expensive than street food but we had two mains and two drinks for 170 000. You can spend a lot more if you... More

We were having casual dinner hosted by one of DG in Indonesia ministry. The dinner was also attended by our church leaders. After dinner we had small discussions and ended after the restaurant closing hours. As we walked down the stairs, the lift was broken, we found that main entrance had already locked. We thought it would be opened immediately... More

I hosted a corporate event (dinner) last week at the Oakwood location. They provided a private room as requested, but our event was scheduled to start at 6:00. We asked for wine and beer to be served 6:00-7:00. Despite our persistant requests, they did not bring the wine until 6:45. We never could figure out what was taking so long.... More

I have never tried Penang culinary before and this place gave me a good impression for delicious food. Their service was also quite nice, attentive staff and quick serve of food. There was live music with a singer and a pianist which gave the place a decent atmosphere. Nice place for romantic dinner or who wants to dine in tranquility.

I got brought to the Penang Bistro on a business lunch with 10 other people. Dispute the large party, service was still excellent and very prompt. We started with some Roti Canai and dipping sauces which were lovely. The roti was done to perfection, flakey and melted in the mouth. We at the rest of the meal family style with... More

I went early for lunch at the Grand Indonesia branch for fearing a crowd rush. The place was very nicely decorated. I would give the food a 6 of 10. It has Penang taste but like everywhere else, if you desire the real taste, you have to fly to the city of origin. Even at the origin, the original taste... More
