I came here with my friends, expecting nothing more than just another ordinary Chinese fusion restaurant with decent ambience and mediocre taste, instead, I found this place surprisingly amazing. The ambience was amazing, the decoration is retro yet so catchy. The most surprising part was when the menus came, which honestly taste a lot better than I had expected. Lastly,... More

Great ambiance and decor, great food and very pleasant service. The menu is not over extensive as Chinese style restaurants often are, but a nice tight selection of "tapas" style and main dishes of both Chinese and fusion Indonesian, Shanghai food. Great restaurant.

Came on a reccommendation with a group of friends. attentive, genuinely happy staff helped make the night. Great cocktails, food portions were a bit small however prices reflected this. Order a heap of dishes then pick your way through, nothing dissappointed us. The "sleeping prawn in a nest" had us scratching our heads lol... Unusually rice was an extra to... More

I am no stranger to Shanghai Blue. I first discovered this restaurant more than six years ago. I fell in love with the genre, the whole concept and level that restaurant ambiance had been taken to in Jakarta, or anywhere, for that matter. The space and ambiance created by the Tugu group is inspired. The collection of historical artifacts that... More

Place: location is at the city center. an old oriental/chinese design dominated with red shading, shady lights, very romantic. you can smell incense aroma inside (well, sometimes it comes too strong :). It's main menu are indonesians and chineses. Somehow, I find its scallops are good(? but scallops are not chinese food, rite?) Not a very high-end quality cooking, but... More

one thing that amazed me first time i've been here is the decoration, it doesnt look like a restaurant for me, more like a gallery, but still this place is amazing, all the collections that they have just to make this restaurant look so elegant, bravo for that. so, we tried the food, it was ok for chinese food.

Just had a dinner at Shanghai Blue 1920 with my fiance and we really love it! The place is incredibly nice, an ambience you barely can find in Jakarta's restaurant. The food is also great, the size of a portion is quite big (I'm really full!). I would like to recommend Ice Shanghai Blue (i kinda forget the name) for... More

The restaurant serves Indonesian food with a modern spin. The decor is interesting, with many vintage furniture and antique pieces.

For Jakarta the prices were pretty reasonable. Good atmosphere and fun to go with coworkers for dinner and drinks. Next door to Samara, nice decor with a different style. Lots of antiques. Staff was very nice and friendly. Portions were okay, not big but the fish we had was very good.
