Furama is an affordable Chinese restaurant, specializing in Cantonese and Hakka cuisine. Established since 1978, it is very popular among the Chinese community in Jakarta. They also have a ballroom for weddings.
Furama relocated on Jalan Hayam Wuruk a few years ago, and it is now much more modern, probably a bit too much. They have large boards everywhere advertising the restaurant promotions ("all you can eat Dim Sum for Rp53,300++"), making the place look like a fast-food. I wouldn't advise coming there for an intimate dinner, in particular a date.
I visited Furama after midnight, and at that time only Bubur (rice porridge) was available. I had the Bubur Pitan, and added a plate of grilled Pork and grilled Duck. I didn't keep the bill, but I remember the total was approximately Rp100,000. Compared to another Bubur I had in Kamseng restaurant, the one in Furama tasted much better. The Duck and Pork was more average, probably because of the ingredients used.
Overall: Furama is not a must-try restaurant, but if you live or work nearby, I would recommend it to you because it has a good value-for-money, especially for lunch. If you are enjoying Kota's nightlife, it can also be a stop on the way home as it stays open until quite late.
