I've been to this restaurant 3 times now and on each occasion the food has been of good quaility, well presented and with excellent service. The decor is sumptuous, the lighting is ideal and, due to a variety of seating options, suited to a night with friends as well as for a more romantic experience.
It's not particularly cheap, but neither is it outrageously expensive and more to the point I believe that I have always experienced value for money.
The menu is varied and the staff will do their utmost to accomodate any personal preferences.

Beware: The pointer on google map is wrong and will take you 20 kms away from actual place. We were staying in Central Jakarta and google map showed that this place is only 1.2 kms away so choose to walk down and we landed up in a small alley. Then we called up restaurant and because of language problem (most of the people do not know English) we had to give our phone to taxi driver to know exactly where the place is and here we go.... 11 kms towards South Jakarta.

The place is haunted by more than 1000+ restaurants and each restaurant seems to be inviting with such a galore ambience. The area is though very crowdy and full of traffic snarls because of small roads but worth a visit. Kinara is next to Pizza Hut restaurant.

The ambience, the decor, the artifacts are too inviting. We ordered cocktail "Wet Dreams" and grilled chicken with Hara Bhara Kebab. One of the best drinks (though very strong) and non-veg. Chicken was too tender (great taste).

In main meal we had potato naan (flat bread) and a paneer dish. The taste was too good. I wish to return to this restaurant. For 3 of us the bill with this menu came a little above 600,000 IDR i.e. about USD 52+.

A must visit if you happen to be in South Jakarta.

Although I have been here several times, and think it's an average restaurant in general, the Sunday brunch is so disappointing! Hardly a variety, and then you have to wait a long time for them to refill the servings, and when they finally did refill, the amount was just enough for 3 or 4 people. The day we were there in May, there were two large groups, with lots of children running around. The staff at the restaurant let these children run havoc in the restaurant. They were walking around the buffet and picking up food with their hands! When we complained, they just smiled and said sorry, but did nothing about it. The staff were completely ignorant of what's happening in the restaurant, showing very little professionalism. The restaurant is also getting old and tired. It needs a serious refurbishment. It's not very clean, and after this brunch experience, I will not be returning to Kinara anymore. When I first tried this restaurant 4 years ago, I thought the food was quite good, but time has taken its' toll on this restaurant... time for a serious change!

A group of us arranged a farewell party for a friend and his family who will shortly be leaving Jakarta. The buffet brunch had very limited selection and topping was rather slow/nil. The desserts too were very limited. The thosai counter was good and well worth the visit. Have been here several times before now and have always enjoyed the ambience, food and service.

I have been there many times and sometimes I ordered delivery.
Food is very good I like a lot ... bread very good.
Of course it is expensive as most of the restaurant in Jakarta.
You can have a totally vegetarian dinner.
I will visit the place again for sure!!!
