I had dinner at Boka Buka last night. It is hard to talk about food quality when a restaurant is this overpriced. I had 4 glasses of white wine. Yes, four. Four glasses at Boka Buka equal 2 in a normal restaurant. They charge the usual high price for one so you end up paying double for what you would... More

Really enjoyed our dinner here. Nicely decorated and friendly staff. Steak cooked just right. Reasonable price and no bad after effects. Will return on next visit to Jakarta.

If you crave for French Cuisine, try escargot at BOKA BUKA restaurant and your palate will be satisfied. I visited their outlet at Street Gallery, Pondok Indah Mall and the cozy ambience that this outlet offered suited me. Overlooking the pool facilities of the Mall, this provides seating with a nice view and an option to the open terrace adjacent... More

They have moved into a brand new building now, more space and nicer decor. But I couldn't say the same with the food. We ordered salmon white wine sauce and grilled lamb cooked with red wine, appetizer : escargot 12 pcs. Maybe we picked the wrong specialties but none of them are as good as it used to be, except...

This used to be one of my favorites, at least up until earlier this year. The menu choices have dried up leaving the standard fare. Salad choice down to one. The bold savoury sweetness of the pumpkin soup ran away. The beef borguignone came out to cloying with too much cream. As the title says, not the same anymore. Don't... More

So I wanted a nice French food for an (early) Valentine's dinner. Hubby hates french food with all the trimmings.. posh, pretentious, steel-y feel you get from a fine dining establishment. Well, that is not the case with BokaBuka. The minute we arrived at the restaurant, we knew it was going to be a good dining experience. The building is... More
