“Great Indonesian food in a relaxed but attentive atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

Went to this restaurant last night (May 4) on the recommendation of and accompanied by a local business colleague. Fantastic space, relaxed ambience, staff attentive but not pushy. The menu was broad, full of interesting, well explained dishes with good English translations. We let our local colleague choose and he chose the metre long satay, which, with it's varied grilled treats and accompanying sauces was stunning! Along with a couple of local side dishes and the red rice (instead of white steamed rice) it was a grand feast, and reasonably priced.

The same owners have a tapas bar (Moya) and a French-themed restaurant (Cassis) in the same building. Having experienced their Indonesian style, it will be a hard choice to make between trying their other venues or going back to "Harum Manis".

Absolutely recommended to anyone in search of traditional Indonesian food but not keen to try the street vendors. Wear you best batik shirt on Fridays for a 10% discount (well, when we were there, anyway!)

“Super nice food in such a great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

This restaurant has a very nice food. Should really try their 1 meter satay. It consists of several types of satay that is worth to try. The service are excellent, the waiter are very helpful. The place are very homey and they have a nice furniture and decoration. They also have regular promotion and events on weekly basis. Check them online www.harum-manis.com

“Stylish restaurant serving good local food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2011

We were impressed by the good explanation of the food, with a well designed menu and good english translations. Known Indonesian favourites were complemented with some that would not be known by a first time visitor to Indonesia. The "1 metre" Sate looked and smelt great.

Food prices are very resonable, and a limited wine menu is available, with prices below the normally very high level in Jakarta.

Overall, a good experience, evident with a full house on Tuesday night.

“Excellent Food loved it.. waiting to visit them again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

After a tiring day the visit to Harum Manis was a refreshing one. Went with the recommendation for the drink which was good and the food was recommended by my colleague. An excellent native dish "Nasi Timbel Komplit", just loved it.

Waiting for my upcoming visit to Jakarta to have some more interesting and great dishes at Harum Manis
