“REASONABLY PRICED AND DELICIOUS INDIAN IN JAKARTA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Why spend a lot of money for regal overly elegant places when you can visit this place? Jakarta has so many places that serve decent Indian and Pakistani but this one must be tried to be believed. A little hard to find so don't miss it.

There are only a few good Indian and Pakistani restaurant in Jakarta, but Kinara may be the only one who combines good food and great interior.

“People said not original, but for me it's just right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

I've tried Ganesha but for me, Kinara is just right.
When you got Indian colleagues coming and they are vegetarian, this place can solve your problem.

I love the Mango lassi, and all the Naan. The portion is small so we could try a lot of dishes. Every time I went here, the place were never overcrowded which make the service is much quicker. Don't go for lunch here, you will end up return to the office at 2 o'clock. :-D I think they need time to prepare the food. That's why I prefer to go here for dinner.

You could say the price is quite expensive, but I think it's worth it. Considering the interior, the location and of course the food.

Overall, I will come back definitely for Kinara.

Especially the sweet naan with fruits! Ambiance is dark but authentic enough

“Tasty food, great service and colorful atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

As with any South Asian restaurant, my Indian and Pakistani friends will be happy to tell me why the food isn't genuine, not as good as the way they prepare it at home, or at another restaurant (frequently these recommendations will directly contradict that of another friend!). We like Kinara. They have a nice variety of South Asian, whether or not the flavors and mode of preparation are genuine, I can't tell you. But the food is delicious. Especially don't miss the dal. And the service is helpful and accommodating. I've had group events here, and the organizers were very diligent through endless changes in numbers and food allergies. And the atmosphere is lovely. If you book, and have fewer than four people, ask for a booth.
