It was a pleasure and an experience eating here. I've eaten here before and its very consistently great. Service, quality and the menu are all top notch. I really like this place and cant wait to go back again.

We had business partners coming and our numbers were not good. As they really appreciated food, this Resto saved us.

It was a bit of a trek for us but well worth it primarily for the charm of the place. Lovely. Surrounded with Indonesian artefacts, (would actually be nice if there were some brief explanations of the pieces. The menu is filled with an extensive...list of regional dishes. I have no idea how authentic they are but they were very tasty and eye-wateringly spicy. Definitely worth a visit and will return.More

I have visited twice in the last week. On both occasions it was early, before 7pm. The restaurant had only a few diners. Seating at the table was okay, but they leave you with the menu and no drink until i had to ask for...my order to be taken. On both occasions not once did a waiter return to the table to ask how my food was or if i want something else. The waiters walk around in a dreamland.More

Went to Lara Djonggrang on a Thursday night with no reservations. Grabbed a ride to the restaurant which was easy from my hotel in the Kemayoran area. There were three of us. The place is really nice. Met my expectations. Has a bit of a...mysterious air about it, service was friendly and food was good. The wine was good too. I love the bubur sumsum. Price is on the higher end but I do think it is worth it because of the ambience. I like the background music too. Everything is nicely put together. Most importantly we had a nice evening there. Would I return? Yes.More

A fantastic experience with a real local feel. Everything was delicious, in particular the Chicken Satay.

We found a mouse inside the restaurant... We order at the end a little shot of Amaretto Disaronno and we had to pay 140 rupie (9 euro!!) for each one.

We were a group of 30 people and they reserved a bad treatment. There were mice in restaurant. We asked no spicy food but all the dishes were spicy. Not recommended.

This was our first time at a Tugu restaurant. We absolutely loved the ambience, the service and the food. The food was really delicious. As a vegetarian, I had many choices and got hot food really hot (temperature wise) the way it should be and...not tepid or veering towards cold. Each of us enjoyed our meal, our wine, our dessert and the service.More
