I actually ended up eating here after failing to get waited on at the Nana Manis Restaurant a few doors away. I tried the Karedok and Mie Tek Tek. Both were great. But I especially liked the Karedok. I also had a great Iced Coffee. Highly recommend that you stop in if looking for really good food and great service.... More

Second time eating at Kafe Betawi. Seems to be in most malls. Good place to start trying local food. Have quite a good range of Indonesian dishes though it was not a lucky night for us as most of the items we wanted to order was unavailable at the Senayan City branch, which was a bit disappointing, and especially after...

I must admit the price is high comparing to ketoprak stall near your house. BUT, you get service here, and you can taste that the quality of the ingredients is also different.

This is a good place to start if you're looking for a local food but not sure about the hygiene of those street vendors.

I tried the "Ketoprak", it is not what I expected. I think the street vendor makes a better one. The "Acar" is very good. The "Es Doger" also average. They put too much this and that. I only want a simple es doger with young coconut. I'd been to the one in Alam Sutra, to me the food at that... More
