Had business gatherings in the Mega Kuningan and Kebon Sirih branches. Food was delicious. The one in Kebon Sirih has rooms for small groups so it is really convenient. The fruit juices are excellent and they are fresh .

We've eaten at the many branches this restaurant now has, including the 1st one in a shop house ("ruko") complex in Pondok Indah once upon a time (no longer there at that original location), if I recall correctly. The restaurant continues to serve its signature menu with consistency in taste, texture & size (although prices have inflated quite a bit since 2002).

The size of the restaurants have continued to expand, along with its menu, & branches. Service have so far been consistent as well, which helps to continue to attract the business, casual & family crowds all days during the week.

If you like Asian cuisines, especially South East Asia, you really should try this one when you come to Jakarta, Indonesia. The price is quite expensive but it's totally worth it! My favorite food are Ayam Mangga and Udang Mayonnaise. For drink, Kedondong Juice is recommended (unless you hate its sourness). Roti Canai Beef Curry and Sweet Roti Canai Tissue are best for dessert. Besides, its interior design is really breathtaking, there are 3 spots and you can choose if you want to see the streets of Jakarta while enjoying the food, or you want some of nature surrounding near a mini waterfall and bamboo, or you can enjoy your food sitting on the side that looks like a classic restaurant. Plus, there's a valet parking and it only costs IDR 5000, it would be the best choice to use valet lunch and dinner time

There are not many reasons to spend time in Jakarta but the food scene is one of them. Do not much about Malaysian Food but it was very good. Chicken with mango, beans, stingray all typically prepared. Guave jelly dessert I liked too. Decent bill for the quality provided, pretty quick service too.

Had dinner with friends at the Oakwood, Mega Kuningan branch. Very nice ambience with real friendly staff. The food was very authentic and yummy - as Malaysians we can attest to it. The portions were reasonable and the deep fried soft shell crabs were great as was the ayam terasi, satay and spring rolls. Also we could take our own wines at a reasonable cost for corkage.
