Awesome place to eat. If you like modern Indonesian food, this is the place to go. I recommend the Pesmol and Nasi Goreng Jawa.

very popular to the customer, the location was superb before the airport, the food needed improvement especially the baked fish (ikan bakar), the bakery served very good old-style bread (worth to bring home in Jakarta) ...
