Unreal traditional Indonesian food, prepared for a king (or at least Sultan). Original and interesting in so many ways, each taste is a delight. Something different with service that makes you wished a couple of hundred years ago!

The grand historical building originally housed the Fine Arts Circle of the Dutch East Indies and was opened in 1914.In April 2013, this legendary building of Bataviasche Kunstkring has been reopened under the name TUGU KUNSTKRING PALEIS, and brought back to life by Tugu Hotels & Restaurants Group. Without changing the beautiful palatial architecture.
