Few good Middle East restaurants around, but this is excellent and has stood the test of time. Divine houmous, great lamb shanks. In fact all is good.

Nice breads and dips eg hummus and baba ganoush Ordered the bbg lamb kebab and the meat was well seasoned, though a tad dry. The spiced rice was good as well. Finished the meal with a warm moroccan mint tea Attentive service, good decor

Al Nafoura is a Lebanese restaurant at Le Meridient on Jl Sudirman, Jakarta. It is tucked away at the back of the ground floor of the hotel so is not the easiest to find. The hotel looks really good with a nice water feature and reasonable surrounds. The tables are elegant and seating comfortable. While al Nafoura styles itself as... More

This restaurant has a very stunning Middle Eastern setup which gives you a feel like you are in one of the restaurants in Middle East.. Very romantic for couples and very casual for those who would love to have some shisha after meal on the outdoor section. For the food, the presentation and taste were good. The only downside is...

Had a dinner... 3 of us. Was recommended by concierge of Pullman as there's no other middle east restaurant around. Probably they're the best but without the presence of Mandy.. Haneeth.. Kabsa.. Madghout Lamb... hmm.. i can't put this as Lebanese or Yemeni restaurant indeed. Taste wise.. nice! But i need something that reminiscence Hadramawt valley... hmmm...hmmm.... & expensive.

New chef this year, so if you haven't been in a while or if older reviews have put you off, give it a(nother) go. We had chicken, seafood, several mezzes, couscous and freshly baked Lebanese bread. A simple selection of food that was well prepared, tasty and nicely presented. Service was attentive. Well, there were 16 of us so I... More

Saturday day evening, decided to have dinner at the once weekly buffet at Al Nafoura and it was an amazing feast. Food that was mouth watering and the presentation wonderful. The only disappointment was the most expensive, mediocre wine in the world. What you would pay for a bottle the charge for a very small glass. Suggestion come for the... More

The food is just great. The atmosphere is a bit dark, and they have a belly-dancer that I would like to avoid. Saturday night they have a buffet (I believe they don't let you order a la carte)...if you go save up your appetite.

Jakarta is not vegetarian paradise but considering that Lebanese food has a lot vegetarian options I was disappointed. The spices were seriously toned down to suit the western palate. The service is fine but they are not the best people to advise on choice - the setting is al fresco dining area is great to sit and chill at night...... More
