I don't like with the ambience. So dark and old. The food is okay but not special. Not make me want to come back again and again.

Last time I was here was like more than 5 years ago, so I wondered whether Dapur Babah could keep its quality after all these years. It didn't disappoint me. The dishes were delicious, the only minor letdown was smaller portion of roasted duck; it seemed bigger last time i was here. But then again it was more than 5... More

First time to visit this restaurant with two business colleagues. There were also two large groups dining. Dimly lighted but spotlights available above tables. Antiques everywhere inside the restaurant. Friendly staff, even addressing me by name, as innovatively my name was written on a piece of leave. A Javanese Dancer entertained the two large groups. Quite a number of variety... More

One of the best that i've been visited so far; cozy and warm ambience, tasty foods, and great services from the staffs. A bit pricey, but definitely worth it. So, the foods were : - Ayam pongteh. Their ayam pongteh was a bit watery compared to what i used to ate and taste a little bit bland. It was ok... More

I visited this excellent restaurant in 2015 and again last Thursday for lunch. On Friday night though, a colleague and I went back for dinner and were treated to an excellent meal in one of the private dining areas - it was a truly memorable experience. I hope other readers will enjoy the images posted here, I would like to... More

I visit Dapur Babah in afternoon around 3pm and need to adjust my eyes a while from sunlight to a low light ancient chinese family house. The restaurant keeps its original design especially wooden flooring which wooden aroma can be smelled. Inside the restaurant there are antiques such as photos of chinese family, chinese vase and historical rock from VOC... More

I always love to visit Dapur Babah Elite. Beside the yummy Indonesian peranakan Cuisine, they present the dishes in a very beautiful and nice way. The service is also satisfying. Amazing details/decorations and amazing food. Every details of this restaurant has its story/history. I always bring my foreign friends and clients while they visit Jakarta.

Thank Adinda D
