Nice ambiance and I would love to recommend this restaurant to international tourists. However, I think the food is a litte bit overpriced

I came here bringing group of other country guests. The place, the layout, and the setting really kept the guests enjoying their stay. Please keep in mind of the portion of their food. The taste is good and they do a fusion of traditional indonesian food to works really well with international guest palate. Do reservation.

This is the first time I visited Lara Djongrang. Having been to its sister Kunstkring Paleis, Honestly I had set the bar quite low for the food, I had come here just for the restorant historical ambience. But they surprised me when my ginger drink came, they used blocks of fresh ginger in a big glass, it was fresh. Then... More

We went there in the evening and the place was half full. 95% where bus-group-tourists in retirement age. This place looks very nice and traditional/folkloristic but prices are very high for Jakarta. Food was terrible in our opinion. Starters where ok and dessert also, but the rest only looked good and tasted terrible. In our opinion the food was far... More

Wonderful place for dinner, this is my favourite restaurant in Jakarta. The decoration and ambiance are memorable and the food takes you on a culinary journey through the archipelago. You could come here every night for a month and still not run out of different dishes to try. The bar area at the back is my favourite place to sit,... More

A unik place, sutable for every occasion. It has a variety of halls - for buisiness meetings, family gatherings, for a romantic dinner, there is a table even in the patio. Lots of artifacts exhibited, statues ( some of them sadly removed from original locations in central Jawa), in the patio there is a pond with goldfishes. Traditional jawanese cuisine... More
