Indonesian restaurants are rare to find. I had an image of oily and tough-on-stomach toward Indonesian cuisine. But this place was so good and my stomach is feeling still well. Fish Rica Rica and Eggplant in garlic are instant hit. All other dishes were very tasty too. Coconut ice cream with fruit cocktail was awesome finish of the dinner. Highly... More

We ordered a lot of food here and whilst it probably wasn't the tastiest Indonesian we've eaten, some dishes were lovely and it was certainly all fresh and well cooked. It's a busy restaurant but the service was efficient and we weren't left waiting fir our meals. They also seem to have a reasonable take away business. There are lots... More

Nice to find a restaurant with some real ambience when so may have that minimalist, anonymous feel. Jakarta drips with Indonesian artifacts, batik table cloths, art, etc, soft lighting and authentic gamelan music to complete the scene. The menu is extensive with plenty of options including for vegetarian and gluten free, so something for every taste and diet. A decent... More

My Indonesian heritage and long love of this food has drawn me to try out this restaurant for long time. The meal was very satisfactory and the ambience in keeping with the culture. My taste senses however were not titivated as expected with respect to the variety and subtle spiciness that I am accustomed to in this particular cuisine. Service... More

My husband I recently dined at Jakarta. This was our third visit to the restaurant. To make things easy selection-wise, we went with a banquet. It included Spring Rolls, Chicken Satays, Chicken Curry, Beef Rendang, Fried Noodles, Gado-Gado, and Chilli Prawns. The dishes were lovely (the Chilli Prawns possibly the lesser so). The Chicken Curry and Fried Noodles would have... More

I dined at Jakarta with a group of friends for a birthday celebration. We chose one of the banquet menus to save time in ordering. The food was great. The service was a little disappointing. The kitchen apparently couldn't cope on this busy Saturday night. The wait between each course was noticeable. However I could not fault the cuisine.

I expected Indonesian food to an Australian standard, especially considering the prices. Unfortunately this was on par with some of the worst street food I had in Bali.
