Prestigious restaurant with Indonesian and Chinese fusion cuisine. The moment you enter "Dapur Babah" , a mystical and elegant vibrant environment show in every detail of the restaurant. Interior design and food serving are outstanding and give completely different experiences. The food taste is way above average, we recommend some signature menus which can be tailored to our needs as... More

I came here with work colleagues. I loved the decor, it was so quirky. The service was very good and friendly, the food was good but not great. The ambience is what makes this restaurant worth visiting. Perfect for groups. The only bad thing is it does smell a bit fusty like a museum.

Overall I liked it and hated it .. Talk about confusion! Went there for a company dinner and we had exclusive use of the private dinner area next to the bar. The plus points were that the service was impeccable. Food was delicious and well presented. The unique traditional oriental Asian decoration which overcrowded the place was interesting to look...

We had brunch in Dapoer Babah. I ordered Nasi Goerih Bebek and my wife had Petjel Pintjoek. My meal was a tasty rice with several condiments, all in the right portion. I was satisfied with it. But my wife complained that her meal was a bit spicy. I also ordered Kembang Tahoe as a dessert. The sauce was supposed to... More

Having enjoyed much of the Tugu brand restaurants and hotels, must say this restaurant is not on par with the brand name at all. As per usual, great decor and a nice setting in line with Tugu restaurants. However, the service made this a terrible experience. Came in with a group of 10+ and had a reservation made prior, thus...
