Excellent food especially fried gurame fish ( crunchy skin and bones but tender meat ) with super tasty sambal ( indonesian traditional chili sauce). Ambience is very unique, heavily loaded with typically Indonesian, Chinese art and culture stuffs. Staff service is great with customized excellent service delivery. So, Dapur Babah is not just a great restaurant, highly recommended.

if you live 'peranakan (tiongkok meet melayu)' culture, this is the perfect place to eat. You will feel like having meals in the private museum. The food, for me, is quite nice but for Indonesian, could be more spicy. Overall, it's a great experience.

This place is quite unique. Lovely colonial ambience, it's decorated with old Chinese/Indonesian antiques & photos of bygone days, dark, heavy furniture. The staff were great, attentive & polite. An extensive menu, interesting food of the "babah" stye (fusion of Javanese/Chinese). We had a lovely time, disappointed that we couldn't stay longer (we were there for lunch & were on... More

It was my first visit to this restaurant and I could feel "Tugu Group" hospitality since we walked in through the front door. The interior and hospitality really support our family dinner. On top of that, the food are excellent. The staff are open for any suggestion to improve the quality.

If you wish to submerge and relive the old colonial era, then this restaurant will most definitively help you to get in the mood. The decorations contain a fusion of Chinese, Indonesian, and south-east Asian styles, and is definitely one of the best looking... More
