The Best Indian Restaurants in Jakarta

By Jakarta100bars →
Indian restaurants are relatively easy to find in Jakarta, and their overall quality is decent. The most authentic and cheapest options are usually located where the Indian community lives (mainly in Sunter and Pasar Baru), while in the the Center and in the South, where expatriates live, you have some more expensive and stylish restaurants.  Here is my list of Jakarta's best Indian restaurants, by category: - Indian restaurants with both excellent food and atmosphere (Fine Dining): 1) Kinara (Kemang Raya No. 78-B, Phone number: +62 21-719 2677) 2) Hazara (click to read my review on this blog) 3) Ganesha Ek Sanskriti (BRI II Building, Jl Jend Sudirman Kav 44-46., Phone number: +62-21 5719415 / 5713567) 4) Ganesha Ek Sanskriti (Kemang Square Lt 2, Jl Kemang Raya No 5., Phone number: +62-21 7196837).

By The Jakarta Team →
Eastern Promise is a friendly, laid-back expat pub with several rooms, each with a particular atmosphere. You have a quiet bar in the entrance, then a dining room for eating British and Indian food , and in the back a beer garden with live music for partying. Also on the side, a billiard/darts room, and a sports-watching room. Eastern Promise is usually very crowded, especially on weekends, with a lot of expatriates mostly above 35.

They all belong to the Face group, which owns a few other venues in Asia (Bangkok, Shanghai, Beijing, Pudong), each with a distinctive "ethnic" atmosphere. Hazara was their first restaurant to open, in 1992, and it has remained very popular ever since among expats, travellers and locals. Its excellent reputation comes from both the quality of the food served and from its stylish design/decoration. There are actually two different rooms, quite different: The one inside is dark, with antiques and candles creating a mystical vibe. The one outside (in the veranda) is more ordinary, with large windows and a small garden. For dinner, I advise you to stay inside, and vice-versa for lunch. The menu in Hazara is a mix of North Indian and Middle-eastern dishes. I didn't keep the bill when I last ate there, but from the photo I took I think it was
