The staff is very unprofessional, treated the local Indonesian differently. They treated the expats waaaaay better. It should not happened! I have tried to call the manager, but the waitress left me without permission while I am still talking. They should learn good manner and treat people the same. Fyi, not all the expats have money. Maybe the local have... More

EP is a classic place within the Jakarta expat community. It's large with several room settings and after 9 it changes into a house-mode music style, for reasons I never really understood. I believe it's managed by a Dutch guy and it is a smooth operation - however, they always cheat on the bill, so double-check it before paying. It... More

Eastern Promise is a very fantastic restaurant. At a glance you might thought that the cuisine would've been a little bit of dutch cuisine because of its "moody" vibe. However the restaurant actually served British-Indian cuisine. The curry was absolutely fantastic as it has a very strong yet subtle flavour in it, not to mention the bread and side dishes... More

We stayed at a nearby hotel and decided to check this place out on our last night there. It was a very typical pub catered to tourists. It was quite happening for a Wednesday, filled with tourists and with a live band playing. There is a separate restaurant if you want a quieter dining experience. Overall great service and happy...

Nice neighborhood pub with decent food. Menu has many choices from curry, burgers, fried rice, etc. Many separate areas in establishment, with sports coverage in one area, live band in back and front bar area which is a little more quiet. Well worth a visit.

With many expats from UK, Australia and New Zealand, you really almost forget the fact that you are in Indonesia. They serve many good bar foods, including Boneless Chicken Tikka and various Indian Curry dishes. Nice service by their very friendly bartender should be noted too.

This place was conveniently next door to my hotel so I wandered in to have a look. When travelling, I often give a wide berth to English themed pubs but I must say they have got this place bang on. There is another review which captures it perfectly. Imagine a British pub before the smoking ban. I went in twice.... More

I used to think this restaurant has the best Indian but I was wrong. It gone down so much and their service is getting worse on my last visit. The waitresses only wanted to served a foreigner and made me wait 10 minutes for a menu. I used to really adore this restaurant, a pity its gone down. 4/10.
