Jakarta Restaurants

Where to Eat in Jakarta

Jakarta’s eateries are as diverse as the many cultures and nationalities living in the sprawling metropolis. As you would expect from any major Asian city, the food and dining options go right across the board, from roadside street vendors to up-scale fine dining restaurants, the beauty being that you can try them all and not necessarily have to break the bank.

Western Jakarta is home to Chinatown which should be the first port of call for those who like Chinese food.  Kemang in South Jakarta has the highest density of fine-dining restaurants, lively nightclubs and entertainment areas.

Jalan Jaksa is the place to head for tasty Indonesian food prepared in the original way. Other food types in this area include, Korean, Thai, Indian, Mexican and American. Jakarta’s mega malls feature food courts where delicacies from around the globe can be tried and tested.
