Restaurant located in central Jakarta with great view and architecture, white table cloths, very attentive and friendly staff, the atmosphere feels like at home with moderate price, consider expensive for local people but overall is great value for money.

White table cloths, very attentive staff, three piece string band - not too loud. This was the first time we went there. We had a quick dinner as my wife was tired. The dishes were of a reasonable serving size. We ordered a Grouper fish which was whole. The waiter offered to cut it and serve it. Initially I declined but after struggling with it I asked for assistance. The waiter then rolled over a serving table, cut the fish meat off the bones and presented the fish back on the plate. That's good service.
For those who like cocktails/mocktails the selection is comprehensive.

I have to say that this is one of the best customer service in a restaurant I have ever experienced. The staff were friendly and very attentive to our needs. The food was served beautifully and very delicious. If you want to try Peranakan food, I highly recommend this restaurant. I also really like the place, the restaurant looks like an old traditional Dutch House in early 1900s and it had this Peranakan feels.

To sum up, great food + great place + great customer service!

Since this is a review of a restaurant, and I tend to believe that a restaurant's first and essentially ONLY deliverable is the food, let me give Bungarampai my very highest recommendation based on the "konro".

This is a deceptively simple dish of what appears to be grilled beef ribs. The flavoring accentuates every single one of the many-layered thing that is the flavor of hot beef fat exploding over your tongue, filling your pharynx and immediately inundating your olfactory and gustatory centers. When you recover from the near swoon of the initial impression, you start to notice the textural nuances of fall-off the bone tenderness of the beef.

Short of creating food porn while trying to adequately describe the experience, let me just recommend Bungarampai, which by the way is the name of a small white local water lilly variant, as a restaurant worth visiting as much for the food as the ambience. Make no mistake, I would recommend Bungarampai as highly were it a dive by a canal or a pushcart operation by a smogged out Jakarta bus terminal, just for the konro alone.

Ok, the ambience is nice, its a sit-down joint in an old colonial house. It has a portico with a chandelier, that should tell you all you need to know.

Finally, when in Jakarta, modulate your expectations with regards to service, please, and just enjoy the awesome food.
