What is your favorite restaurant in Jakarta?

Heading to Jakarta and I'm looking for the best restaurants to try while I'm visiting. Open to all types of food! What are your top places to eat?

Hi Katie,

You should try Bunga Rampai, they provide Indonesian food with really nice place to have lunch. Cafe Batavia has very great dining scene if you don't mind spending more. You should check Tugu Kunstkring Paleis at Menteng for unforgettable Indonesian dining experience.

If you don't mind of less comfortable places to eat, you should try local street foods. Most of them would cost around IDR 10.000 - 25.000. I would argue that you should try Indonesian Fried Rice. I would also suggest to try Martabak Boss, they taste heavenly! :)

I have three favorite restaurants and one favorite coffee shop:

  1. Ikan Bakar Cianjur - Cipete (IBC) - traditional Sundanese food. I recommend trying their signature dish, the gurame goreng (fried fresh water carp) and tahu goreng (fried tofu with sweet chili sauce) - see photo below. IBC has several locations .
  2. Pondok Ikan Bakar Ujung Pandang - Makassar (South Sulawesi) seafood. This restaurant serves the freshest and spiciest seafood in Jakarta. It's located on Jln Gandaria 1 No 5 Kebayoran Baru, Jakarta.
  3. The Café in Hotel Mulia Senayan - the best buffet in Jakarta. There are Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian, Indian and Western cuisines – each in separate stations. Each station has over 20 dishes. There's also a dessert room.
  4. @One Fifteenth Coffee - the place to go if you're craving flat white/latte/espresso, salad, pancakes and toasts.
