Absolutely in love with Mbah Jingkrak! Serves fantastic Javanese food in a place that is so weird that it's good. The restaurant is big with many different areas, both indoor and outdoor, each with their own quirky decorations which is a joy to look at and explore. It even has its own garden and pool with tables on platforms that... More

This place offers lots of spicy and non spicy Indonesian foods. The taste is great and they offer free authentic Indonesian drinks like gula asem as a welcome drink. The place is quite nice for 5-8 people more than that then you'll feel cramped.

If you are looking for local ethnic restaurant then you should try Mbah Jingkrak. They serve javanese food with the jamu for welcome drink. The ambience of the restaurant is a bit spooky at first since they use a lot of wood there. You can choose either outdoor or indoor seating. The best part is the food, you have to... More

when i heard the words of "mbah jingkrak", my mind screaming for spicy and hot chilli sauce. the restaurant is nice but don't choose the outdoor table on night because there's a lot of mosquitoes.

Me and my team went there for our "buka puasa bersama." The place had a garden feel to it with a swimming pool in the middle. The food is great, but be warned that it is quite spicy like how the Javanese likes it. Personally, I wasn't prepared for how spicy the food is, but nevertheless the experience was great... More

Every single time I go back to Indonesia, I always try so hard to make time to visit Mbah Jingkrak. For me, this restaurant is one of must-visit restaurants in Jakarta. The food is an authentic javanese style. You can try the hottest chicken dish called Ayam Rambut Setan and yes, it will make you brush your hair and it... More

One of my favourite local Indonesian restaurants, serving a huge variety of very good, traditional, and often veeeery spicy Javanese food. Located in a big old house, there's a big choice of places. The beautiful garden at the back is great. All over the restaurant are collections of items, baseball caps, hotel key cards, old-style cigarette packs and so on.... More

An exotic array of Javenese mixed with Sundanese couisine to enjoy with friends and families. Be careful with their "sambal iblis" (devil chilly paste) though...other spicy food is safe.
