Tugu group hotel and restaurant are my top list for indonesian food eversince my teenager day. though they already westernize their recipe. nothing spicy at all.
I always bring my guests to this place and make them amaze with the antiques, but they has closed down their antique stores and the jamu section for sometimes already.
the platter dishes is always my top choice. I get to try the sate nusantara. those with 24 types of satay if Im not wrong, and it was disappointing. they did not put any charcoal and the satay was cold and hard. they said, its because they dont want any smoke around the area. but we was at the private room. well they can use candle or the blue light.

overall its always fantastic as always.

One of the best restaurants i have been to in Indonesia. The ambiance is out of the world. You can step in here to taste some of the famous Indonesian food like Beef Randang etc and its very tasty. Great wine and drinks and it adds to the atmsosphere.
It is a must visit next time your in Jakarta.

Lara Djonggrang is an interesting place to visit for its design but avoid eating.
Being married to an Indonesian I have a bit of an insight into what Indonesian food can and should taste like and this is nothing like it. Have a drink instead.
This restaurant is part of the Tugu group and the quality of their restaurants differs immensely. Their restaurant in Malang is very good for example. They have two more restaurants in Jakarta but I haven't visited since the quality of food at Laura Djonggrang really shocked me.

The decor is phenomenal and the food is excellent ! An ideal place to discover Javanese specialities. Prices are very cheap for international travelers. Great wine card and good service.
