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...

A hidden gem in Jakarta.. the interior is beautifully done, love it. The service is great - friendly staff and very accommodating. Food quality is also good, a bit on the pricey side especially for Indonesia standard.

The restaurant offers an upscale version of authentic Indonesian taste and cuisines; it has a diverse menu that would not disappoint. The staff are very friendly and attentive and very helpful in recommending and explaining the menu. I tried the nasi pindang cumi on their recommendation and it was really good. The portions are just sufficient for one person. The... More

The atmosphere and design are very unique, maybe one of kind in our country. They have very good people and service. My family very enjoyed. The combination of Asian food, place and its decoration will bring you a calm and very warm environment to enjoy your dinner and discussion with family or your lovely one. That what I feel.

This is my favorite restaurant in Jakarta because it serves amazing food and the decor is breathtaking. Prices are reasonable and a wide selection of dishes for any palette. Whether it's for a romantic dinner or with friends, it's cozy and various rooms give it a feeling of intimacy. The antiques and Chinese decor are striking as is the black... More
