Atmosphere : Ambiant is ancient exotic south east asian with many collectible items as showcases. Unique displays and collections are additional selling points. Unique and nostalgically romantic. Quite uncomfy for underage kids. Suggest lunch time is more appropriate for family gathering. Food : fellows were disappointed with the steaks. Beefstoek was a top notch delicacy. Nasi tjampoer babah so far... More

It was my first time visiting Indonesia, and probably this restaurant was such a great introductory of Indonesian cuisine for me. My Indonesian friends invited me to go to this restaurant after such a long flight all the way from Tokyo. I have no Idea what to expect, but i honestly liked what they served me (specially the ox-tail soup).... More

This place is like a scene from the first Matrix film. You can literally spend hours in here investigating teh nooks and crannies, old photos and extraordinary antiques. The menu is extensive and has a superb wine list to match. If you can find it yo will not be disappointed!

This is just an idea from me. Because the menu provided by Dapur Babah has a unique style. It is dominated with Chinese cuisine but also has western taste. So, if you wanna please your foreigner friend, just bring them here. Make sure you choose the right menu. :) To be honest I love the foods but i hate the... More

This was my first time to have my Indonesian cuisine in Jakarta, a wonderful experience. Nice food, good service and unique decoration, very stylish although they serve you with the traditional food. You can enjoy your time there as staying in a lounge bar, because they also serve with good wine and other beverage. This restaurant would be a best... More
