Nusa

Top choice Indonesian

in South Jakarta

Inside this grand old 1920s colonial house is one of Jakarta's best upmarket Indonesian restaurants. The menu changes nightly depending on what the chefs source from the best local markets and suppliers. Expect creative inspiration and nuanced flavours. Note that as the restaurant is halal, no alcohol is served. Food styling is elegant; many tables overlook the back garden.

Traditional stoves with firewood plus traditional clay pots are used to cook many of the dishes. Menu items range from six-hour slow-braised organic local duck with pelawan mushroom to braised grass-fed Balinese beef served with chilli paste.
