Restaurants in Jakarta

Influences come from the Dutch colonial days at Café Batavia, in Kota, where the 300-year-old dining room hosts guests feasting on brunch and homemade ice-creams. There's sizzling Asian food on sale at the Mangga Besar Night Market in West Jakarta's Chinatown and Pure serves both international and Asian cuisine in a revolving dining-room with city views. Tipping is not expected, but if the service is good a tip is always welcome.
