“Good food. Great attention to details. Perfect for foreigners”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

I went here to take my guest to taste authentic Indonesian food, and it's pretty good actually. My only hope was that Tesate have a restaurant/outlet OUTSIDE a shopping mall, so it have a more "traditional" look and feel to it.

Food is great. But what amazed me the most is the attention to all details. They have a traditional "Gerobak" Surabi at the entrance, a traditional street food, and we order that one (a bit too sweet, actually). All the decor, even the cutlery, is very well picked. Price is somewhat a bit pricey.

Recommended if you're taking a guest for a traditional Indonesian food.

“Delicious traditional Indonesian food and vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

We were invited by an Indonesian couple to meet at Tesate for lunch and what a treat. The restaurant itself is situated in a very upmarket shopping Mall, Plaza Senayan, on the 3rd floor. Decorated in modern style with Indonesian traditional decor, very pleasant, helpful staff and softly playing in the background jazz influenced music from Indonesian singers of the 50s and 60s I suspect just lovely. The menu was a delight to read and everything made my mouth water. Our hosts ordered a variety of meals including fish soup, baked fish, satays in peanut sauce, tempeh (tofu), and various rices. The food was delicious, spicy, lots of amazing local flavours . Go and treat yourself.

“Indonesian Food with class”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

This Restaurant serves authentic and traditional Indonesian food, with high class restaurant style. Taste wise it is good.
The Atmosphere is classy, with the traditional eating utensils like bowls and spoon made of wood.
The price is a bit high, not surprisingly, considering the restaurant's class and the way they cook and serve the food.
There is a lot of traditional Indonesian restaurant, but if you want to try the one with a bit more class then this is the place

“Authentic Indonesian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

The food was authentic and the price is reasonable for the quality of the food. The list of tasty Indonesian dishes is long and you better be careful not to order too much, then the local deserts are a dream.
We know that the service is very slow, so we ordered the food in advance as we were a party of 20. If you're in Jakarta and love Indonesian food, this is definitely a must.
