Kafé Betawi is a chain of Indonesian food restaurants located in various malls in Jakarta. I tried the one in Plaza Indonesia.

Their concept is to sell typical street food dishes in a clean and cozy atmosphere. The prices are low, especially for malls and they are usually popular venues to eat probably for this reason.

We had a few dishes in Kafe Betawi:
Nasi Ulam Komplit (Rp35,000++)
Babat Goreng (Rp20,000++)

Ayam Goreng Kuning (Rp21,000++)
Nasi Goreng Kambing (Rp35,000++)
Overall: The food is decent, but certainly not the best Indonesian food you will find in Jakarta. Considering the prices and the friendly service though, I will probably come back the next time I need a simple, good-value meal inside a mall.

  1. The only thing I noticed it's the women with veils!! Are we in the 21st century!?!! It's very shcking to see women (espacially indonesian girl who are so pretty) to hide behind this middle-age tradition!!! Shocking!! A girl power from PH

  2. This is to do with religion. Not everyone is Catholic here like PH. Also, please don't openly show your ignorance of peoples religion and beliefs. People from Philippines tend to be arrogant and proud but the fact is its a loser country with nothing much to be proud of.

  3. kafe betawi has a warm and cozy atmosphere. they provide tasty indonesian foods with hmm resoanable price. everything seems nice and i love it. if only they give discount vouchers, i absolutely will be their loyal cust. lol

  4. Honestly, I don't have any good comment about this place. Their services are VERY DISAPPOINTING. I've tried them at Central Park, Pacific Place and Living World. I keep giving them CHANCES haven't I? Pacific Place, they didn't cook the food right. It was wet and taste horrible. Central Park, it took them 30minutes after the food arrive, to give use our spoon and fork sets. The waitress pretended not to see us, calling them. We asked for BILL and they didn't give us. We should have left unpaid. The food turned cold. VERY DISAPPOINTING. Living World, we asked for an empty glass and it took them 20minutes (better than the spoon and fork sets, but still.) and we asked the waitress she went in the kitchen and lost in the kitchen. She didn't come out again. Then we asked for the male server for an empty glass, he went to the cashier and have a fun chit chat with the cashier girl. So we asked for another male server, and he forgot. Oh geez! Then we went into the bar and asked for the glass and wait in front of the bar. Apparently, the table on my left experience a bad service too. Their satay didn't come while the other food arrived and almost done. The man on the table called the server and asked the dish to be cancelled. She went to the kitchen and BAM!!! The satay arrives! The table on my right also experience the same bad service! Their satay didn't come in the correct number and also one of the stick has shorter meat like someone took a bite in the kitchen. Mind you, my Rujak Ulek also has a bad smell.

    I WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT. There are other restaurant with good food and services which worth your money.

    NOTE: The restaurant was kinda empty. Not crowded when I arrived at all the branches.
