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

The reviews prior to my visit had been really positive so I felt this had to be my next stop after Lara Djonggrang. ( which for the record was a wonderful experience ) First of all, finding the shop was a little tricky but the taxi driver managed to get there without a hitch. To sum up an overall description...

Enjoyed a very nice lunch in the heart of old Jakarta, near Monas. Interior was from a bygone era and menu had many, many choices of Indonesian and Dutch cuisine. Yummy food at very reasonable prices and very nice staff. Make sure your taxi has directions as not the easiest place to find.

Wonderfully decorated place that has a wide selection of food. The staff has great attention to all your needs and serves great food too. Very tasty and not too expensive. For two we spend something like 35 euro. If you are going to drink wine this will double the price. Highly recommended if you are in the neighborhood.
