I wish I could celebrate my birthday with my family in a restaurant that has a unique atmosphere, after searching for half an hour I found Dapur Babah, and I read the review, observe all the picture and menu from the website. So we decided to dine in this restaurant. When I enter the restaurant the waitress welcome us warmly,... More

This is an amazing place - don't miss it if you can possibly get a reservation. The decor of the restaurant is stunning, a totally wonderful surprise from the moment you step inside. The food is absolutely delicious with many choices well laid out in the menu. If you are like us and rather inexperienced at assembling a great Indonesian... More

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
