We have group dinner last night in this restaurant. Located in busy area of Jakarta, and on 2nd floor of a pharmacy (Apotek Roxy). Price wise acceptable. Food served mostly delicious, we have private room to cater our group (few tables @ 10 persons).

If you wanted a fix of Chinese food in Jakarta, Mei Zhou is as good as it gets. The fish soup which comes in a large glass bowl is just amazing; tasty to the last bit. The salted steam chicken may not be comparable with what you can get in Malaysia or Singapore but still a good try. We tried... More

Been several time with family, relatives and friends. Never tired promoting the garoupa fish soup. It tastes super! Try also "Yam Ha" shrimp, "Pa Cham Kay" steamed chicken, both fried noodle or bee hoon. No surprise to see 3 generations in the family sitting around the dine table. Fantastic.

Not an ordinary Chinese cuisine... lots of specialties that you don't find in other Chinese restaurants. The must try is Gurame Fish Soup. Udang Yam Ha (clear and crunchy shrimp), Sup Sam Kip Tie, Babat Rebus .. just to name a few if their favorite dishes. If you visit Jakarta. especially i fyou are staying in West, Central or North...

I always like when Chinese Food brought to the original level. They serve various menu of classic and original recipe such as lindung cah fumak (deep fried eel stirred fried with vegetables) , soup ikan talas (fish soup), babi hong (pork), etc.

Its an old school chinese food restaurant. Their menu is familiar for most of old chinese people. Their specialty is Fish soup, you can add tofu as compliment on the soup. Beside fish soup, you also have to order yam ha, eel with fumak, and also babat jari (I don't know the name in english).

I ate here with my uncle and he ordered everything for us, and everything was really good. I especially love the fish soup! It's very very tasty and just right. I tend to prefer my soups not made from seafood but this one is an exception. But here, the broth is heavenly. I can even eat the whole thing myself... More

It's a real Hakka cuisine to eat in Jakarta, the food is delicious. You must try the pork with salted vegetable, the fish head soup, the eel with siongmak, and the glass prawn are all very nice. The place was peaked on the dinner time. It's located on Hayam Wuruk street which one of the most popular street in the... More
