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 décor 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!
