Good but quite expensive

The atmosphere is good,felt like you're in the village somewhere in Java

I recommend the nasi goreng payon,lidah goreng and ayam goreng serai and the mix fruit ice

Good place for business or entertaining foreign guest

Ask for a candlelight on the table to repel the flies

This restaurant is a hidden gem right off Kemang Raya. The food here is great and very inexpensive. I love to take friends and family here who are visiting Jakarta. You can order tons of different items to try, all in a beautiful garden setting. The only drawback is that the mosquitoes can get bad in the evening. Make sure you have some repellent.

First thing i love about payon is the ambience, From the moment we enter the place, we will be feeling like we're in central java. They have that big door that is traditionally javanese looks. Also the table and the chairs... I usually dont prefer eating traditional Indonesian food in the big restaurant as I always feel the street food is always give the original taste. But payon gives an original taste as well, it never fail to serve me a good food. Try the spicy foods, its really great.

We first tried Payon over 12 months ago, it was recommended in The Lonely Planet, we had a nice evening. However, I went again last week with a newcomer to Jakarta, the service was very poor, food and ambiance were sadly lacking. All of this despite only one other table of guests. We do not plan on returning.
