My wife and I lived in Jakarta for many years and visited Sarinah many times. Its an old department store, originally government owned (maybe still is, I don't know). I've had tailor made suits and sports coats made here, ordered prescription eyeglasses, and bought many items of native Indonesia handcrafts. Things are not necessarily cheap, but not too expensive either,... More

We went to this mall after a work colleague suggested that we go, we just loved the shopping place. We got stuck shopping in the souvenirs shops, a great selection, not the cheapest place but you can do all your shopping here to bring home. We would like to come back to check out other floors in detail, it is... More

Sarinah plaza was recommended to me by my hotel's concierge when I asked him directions where to buy souvenirs. The plaza had a money exchange shop with a good rate to begin with. Plenty of brands whether world wide or local. Bought everything I needed then went for dinner at Chili's.

The location, is perfect. The place, is average. The variety, is quite good, especially ethnics Indonesian fashion and souvenir. The fancy store, is not. But if you are happen in the heart of Jakarta it is the right place to stop by, either to shop or dine. Many restos in the complex from Mc Donald, KFC, Starbucks to Chillis, Platinum... More

Relatively easy place to get to, and on the top two floors you will find the local handicrafts, batiks, etc you would want in Jakarta. Yes, touristy, to an extent, but some interesting stuff and worth a stop. The price you pay for this convenience and having all this stuff you might be looking for is...well, the price you pay....

This is a good place to shop for everything Indonesian, from batik to handicrafts. You will find these on the upper levels. The ground floor and maybe the next floor have the normal stuff that you would find in other malls. The batik selection is pretty good, with many attractive designs, ranging from neck ties, ready-to-wear shirts, and cloth to... More

I visited Sarinah the first time, it is a good and affordable shopping mall. The problem of the size persists , I wanted to buy a size 45 shoes, when I tried it it felt like a size 43 to me. They have plenty of local restaurant at the basement, a massage place also, and a cinema theatre right across... More

Located 5 minutes away from my hotel, I used this mall to buy my groceries and cheap foods from the Food Court. Bottle water, snacks, some fruits and baked goods are some of the items I purchased here. Food courts vendors offer various types of foods. For other areas of this mall, I plan to shop there before leaving Jakarta.
