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.

Nice ambience. Staffs are friendly, funny, a bit cray cray(because I am a cray cray too) Whenever you are in Jakarta, DO... More

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.

Came here with my workmates for our head's birthday. Like another Tugu's, Dapur Babah decorated sophistically with Cina-Peranakan theme. It feels just as authentic as 18th century photo about Chinese family in Glodok, Benteng, or Semarang. I ordered Nasi Kare Kepiting. The curry was great i can't help to spoon it from my plate even though nothing else remains. The... More

The restaurant is in an old Chinese-style house with a gorgeous garden. The food was terrific, we tried four different large dishes which were all outstanding. Their drinks were also great. I would highly recommend a meal there!

This restaurant is a restaurant that offers the authenticity of the food in Indonesia with an artistic touch, just like the ornaments in the entire dining room. food has a good taste and beautiful appearance. the price is a little bit expensive but comparable with the presentation and atmosphere they offered
