There are few options for vegetarians in Jakarta so I was curious to try Dharma Kitchen on the 5th floor of Grand Indonesia. They have branches elsewhere in Jakarta, in Pluit, Central Park and Senayan City.

I was a bit disappointed after looking at the menu, because it features many junk food. I may ask too much, but I was hoping to finally find a place in Jakarta with a focus on fresh, quality ingredients cooked in a healthy way. This is not the concept behind Dharma: Their concept is to serve you all the food you normally have in a restaurant, but to replace the meat by an alternative product (usually made of soybean or mushroom).
Menu Dharma Kitchen
I wanted to see if they had an original way to cook their burgers, so I went for the Chicken one. It was terrible. The taste was not good at all, it was full of sauce and the french fries had a weird taste (according to my friend they use the lowest quality potatoes).
Vegetarian Chicken Burger
The d├ęcor of the restaurant had nothing special and the service was not particularly attentive.

Overall: I would not come back. If you are a vegetarian, the only reason for you to visit Dharma is that they have a wide choice so you'll be sure to find a dish you like (at least on the paper).

  1. They had a special on Mie Kangkung and I thought it was delicious.I loved the broth and it was overall quite well balanced. I would not usually order a burger at a vegetarian place

  2. Yes I was a bit stupid to do that! I'll try again with a different dish then!
