Favorite Bandung Restaurants

One of the big attractions to Bandung is the variety of interesting restaurants, cafes, and coffee houses tucked into the hills around Bandung. Every weekend, Jakartans escape the chaos and congestion of the capital to relax in the quiet Bandung hills.

Here are some of my favorite places.


Dago Atas Area


Cloud 9 Restaurant Bandung
Cloud 9 Restaurant

A bar / restaurant / night club designed in sort of a ski lodge theme – it’s very cozy sitting by the fireplace on a cool evening in the mountains above Bandung, while enjoying the company of good friends. It’s one of Bandung’s most popular night spots. Various activities are separated by levels – dining, dancing, and bar. The pizza is the best, but all the food is good, and the ambiance is unparalleled.

Kopi Ireng Restaurant Bandung
Starry Nights....

Think spectacular view, great coffee and Beef Wellington – Kopi Ireng is one of Bandung’s favorite places. They usually offer live entertainment on weekends. This is where I had my first cup of Kopi Luwak Tubruk – the most expensive coffee in the world. It is processed from the intestines of the Musang (weasel). That’s right, the Musang eats the coffee beans, passes them through their digestive system, and then deposits the finished product for us coffee lovers to enjoy. Rp.75,000 per cup.

Eastern Shark Fin Restaurant Bandung
Eastern Shark Fin Restaurant

On Saturday and Sunday mornings, Eastern Shark Fin Restaurant has an excellent Dim Sum breakfast that includes a huge variety. Get there before 8:00 a.m. to avoid long lines. The price depends on what you eat, but a good meal for me was Rp.50,000.

The Chinese take their Dim Sum very seriously as a culinary art. It was interesting to learn Dim Sum has three categories. Fried Dim Sum is likened to a leather jacket in that it’s hard on the outside. Then, there are two varieties of steamed Dim Sum: the “wool sweater,” and the “silk blouse.” The wool sweater also has a fairly dense outer layer, but the silk blouse has a fragile, sheer skin. Both the leather jacket, and the wool sweater varieties were originally peasant food, but the silk blouse variety was reserved for royalty.

He relies on his customer spreading the word after they have been served a great product, and given good service. It must work, because this place in Dago was overflowing for Sunday brunch.

Because there are no signs, it’s kind of hard to find – look for it diagonally across from Santo Borromeus Hospital.

Eating in Traditional Sundanese Style in Bandung

Traditional Sundanese Dining Bandung
She could be the farmers wife, but today she's our waitress.

Traditional Sudanese dining is outdoors in a shelter called a Saung. There is usually a Saung in every rice field for the farmers to eat their meals in. At mealtime, the farmer’s wife brings the food out to the Saung for her husband.

Bandung is the center of Sundanese culture, so there are many restaurants that offer a traditional dining experience. Tops on my list is Sindang Reret Hotel and Restaurant in Ciwidey, a suburb of Bandung.

At Sindang Reret (Sundanese for “please stop by and see us”), you can choose to eat in a tropical garden, a rice field, or indoors on tables and chairs.

We chose the rice field.

One thing you can always count on with Sundanese food is rich flavor. It can be very spicy, but usually not overly so. They use a variety of spices that balance the flavors very nicely.


After you’ve worked very hard to learn enough Bahasa Indonesian to order a meal, some Sundanese restaurants will throw you a curve by writing their menu in Bahasa Sundanese. Don’t worry though, they’re happy to explain.

Favorite Jakarta Restaurants

The challenge is not finding something good to eat in Jakarta – it’s deciding what to eat. Jakarta restaurants are as diverse as Indonesia itself. From basic, traditional food served by street vendors to 5-star luxury hotels, Jakarta has it all. As you spend some time here, I’m sure you’ll develop your own favorites, but in the meantime, here are some of my favorite places to eat in Jakarta to get you started.


Everfresh Fish Market - Jakarta
Everfresh Fish Market - Jakarta

If you love fresh seafood, head over to Everfresh Fish Market. They have a wide range of fresh seafood, both on ice and in their live aquariums. You begin your dining experience by selecting what you want from the aquariums, or from the displays. Then, they ask you how you want it prepared. After that, it’s just a short wait at your table until your fresh seafood arrives, cooked just the way you wanted it. Be careful though, sometimes one’s eyes can be bigger than their stomach.

The bill usually runs from Rp.50,000 to Rp.100,000 per person.

Locations: Jl. Penjernihan 1 No. 8, Jakarta Pusat. Phone: +62 21 5790 5524 Fax: +62 21 5723 802
Email: everfresh_fish@yahoo.com
It’s easy to find – just head west on Jl. Karet Pasar Baru Timur; about one km. past the Shangri-la Hotel you’ll see a big sign on the right that says, “Polisi.” You’ll have to pass it and make a u-turn – they’re right next to the police station. There’s plenty of parking.

Mall Artha Gading, Ground Floor – Lobby China, Kelapa Gading – Jakarta. Phone: +62 21 3300 1468
Fax: +62 21 4584 3493 Email: everfresh_fish@yahoo.com
I’ve not been to this location, but being in a major mall makes it easy to find.

Traditional Javanese Food

For Traditional Javanese food, it’s hard to beat Warung Mbah Jingkrak. Their slogan is: “When great taste and exotic ambiance meet,” something I think they achieve quite well. Your table is in a traditional Javanese garden, complete with pools and wooded bridges. It’s a bit dark, traditional music is playing, along with the sound of the water fountain – a very nice atmosphere.

Try the Rawon Klewung – a spicy beef stew with a broth created from sautéing a variety of spices in oil and blending them into the simmering soup. The rich black color comes from the main spice – keluak, which is a black nut. Price: Rp.18,000

Traditional Sundanese Food

Dapur Sunda,jakarta restaurant,gurame
Dapur Sunda - Gurame Cobek Bakar - Grilled Gurame fish smothered in chili sauce. Shown with Tahu/Tempe Tepung.

Gurame (Gourami) is a freshwater fish native to South East Asia. Tahu/Tempe Tepung is tofu and tempeh rolled in flour and deep fried.


Dapur Sunda - Tahu Telor
Dapur Sunda - Tahu Telor - stir fried eggs with tofu, tomatoes, and chili. Shown with La Lap, a traditional Sundanese salad, Sambal (chili sauce), and red rice.

Dapur Sunda is my favorite for traditional Sundanese food. The Sundanese people are from what is now West Java. Their food is the spiciest of all Javanese food. They mix many more varieties of spices into their food, than do their Javanese neighbors. The Sundanese have traditionally eaten lots of salads and fish.

Dapur Sunda is a chain restaurant, so it’s not much on ambiance, but the food is great, and the price is reasonable.

The location I have eaten at is on the second floor of Setia Budi One (the middle building of a three building office and restaurant complex) on Jl. HR Rasuna Said. Any Taxi driver will know where it is.

Chinese Indonesian Food

Ta Wan,jakarta restaurant,kakap tausi
Ta Wan - Kakap (Sea Bass) Tausi (Black Pepper Sauce)

Another great choice, also on the second floor of Setia Budi One on Jl. HR Rasuna Said, is Ta Wan – A Chinese Indonesian restaurant that specializes in porridge. It not only porridge though – everything is fantastic, and reasonably priced.

If you’d like to explore the village (kampung) near Setia Budi, Matahari Restaurant has very authentic Chinese Indonesian food, at very reasonable prices. It’s a bit tricky to find, but if you’re adventurous, and in the mood for a 10 minute walk, go out the back of Setia Budi past the fountains. When you get to the street, turn left, walk to the curve in the road, and go up the hill to the first intersection – turn right, walk to the next intersection, and turn left, walk to the next intersection, and turn left again. Follow that road about 200 meters and Matahari will be on your right. If you get lost, just ask. Everyone will be happy to point the way.

One of my Matahari favorites - Ayam Kung Pau, Tumis Kacang Panjang + Tempe. and Juice Jambu.



If you get tired of the local food, it’s hard to beat Ya-Udah Bistro. Their food is really good, and reasonably priced. They have steaks, pasta, sandwiches, salads, burgers, and some Indonesian food too. The restaurant is open on the front – there’s no air conditioning so it can be hot during the day, but mornings and evenings it’s a comfortable place to eat, or hang out while taking advantage of their free wi-fi.

Traditional Food Courts

If you want to eat a bit cheaper, have the flavor of street food, but eat it in a more hygienic environment than on the street, all the malls have food courts serving every traditional dish imaginable.

The food court at Ambassador Mall has nearly 50 food outlets at prices similar to what you would find at street level. It’s good, basic, and cheap eating. Ambassador Mall is on Jl. Prof. Dr. Satrio, in Kuningan.

If you’d like a great view of Jakarta while enjoying some pretty average food, Plaza Semanggi has a food court on an outdoor patio on the 10th floor. There is often live entertainment in the evening. It’s located at Jl. Jenderal Sudirman 50.

Street Food

The best place I have found to eat street food in Jakarta is set-up every evening in Menteng Plaza, next to the Hotel Formula 1, on Jl. Cikini Raya. It draws a huge crowd of Indonesians every night of the week, so it must be good. I’ve always had a great meal there. Just tell the taxi driver, “Plaza Menteng.”

Enjoy your Jakarta food experience!
