“Average food, but excellent place”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

I stayed at Shangri-la Jakarta for about 1 week, and for some reason, the hotel food made me sick... usually, Satoo has a assorted buffet with lots of options... mostly Asian food... but you still can find some western food. I would recommend this restaurant for Breakfast, but not for dinner.. Breakfast is good, lots of food and fruits.... dinner is more restricted.... and prepare your pocket.... the buffet costs around 250,000.00 rupias (approx 25 USD). I also had a huge problem one day, I had my breakfast as usual, and I decided to bring one banana and one small cereal box to my room so I could eat them later... when I was leaving the restaurant, I was chased and asked to leave the food in front of every client in the restaurant... I felt really bad, and I argued explaining how unconfortable was the situation.. paying 25 USD for a breakfast and having this treatment....

“So so buffet”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Went there with colleagues. Try to get a seat in the outdoor area as it is comfy and they have live music. The food selections are wide however I still prefer The Cafe at hotel mulia. The service is good and attentive, they will clear your dirty plate repeatedly without being asked.
Dessert selection was not that much, however i really love their "jamu" counter. It is Indonesian traditional herb drink that not easily found nowadays. And the auntie there really good at making the drinks.

“Great place to have dinner.”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

i was eating at Satoo last year with my friends. This is one of the best restaurant in Jakarta. Its an all u can eat buffet with many great tasty foods from all the world. They have Steak, many kind of pasta, pizza, salad,Chinese food, Indian food, Indonesian food, Arabian food, and all of them taste great. But what make them more special is the restaurant atmosphere that is really beautiful, its cozy, and also romantic at the same time. This restaurant is perfect for couples, business, or for those who having a special occasion. The price is around 300.000 rupiah ++ per person, but i must tell you, its worth every penny of it.This is a restaurant that you must try, highly recommended.
