Comfortable Indonesia-Themed Restaurant
LOCATION: The place is literally in city center. FOOD: The buffet area is quite small but the variety of the food was good enough. The best dish for Indonesian food was the oxtail soup and Gayo Coffee Ice Cream (My favorite), the western food was just ok, it was just like in another five-star western buffet. The lack of their buffet is the Japanese food, the sushi selections were very limited, the taste was so so but fresh. They also don't provide salmon sashimi like in other five-star hotels but the good thing is they have seafood station and all of them are very fresh (such; prawn, clams). SERVICE: Overall was great but I was a little bit disappointed by one male server (I can't mention his name) because I saw him seeing his friend who was being given a tip by us and and he hurriedly came to our table whereas he wasn't around before, taking up our finished-food plate like he was expecting a tip from us too :( CLEANLINESS: 10/10 ATMOSPHERE: 9/10 - They just refurbished the restaurant and I love it! I love the lighting, interior, and they enrich Indonesian culture and it was cozy. The bar area is beautiful. VALUE FOR MONEY: 8/10

Seriously *5 hotel buffet breakfast?
I just wonder , how great is buffet breakfast experience at grand cafe, after renovated. I am mesmerized by the interior design. Looks very luxury , just like luxury restaurant around menteng. Smoking area with thamrin view also perfect. If there is room only package, absolutely will buy it. Room rate for weekend above 2 mio and weekday 3 mio, but not as good as other 5 star hotel. Yoghurt just yummy brand, cheap. Compared to shangrila / kempinski or even le meridien use elle n vire. Not many fruit choices compared to kempinski. If you try to be 100% indonesian buffet restaurant. Not many Food choices also. Your main course only Lontong sayur, ayam hainan, ayam goreng, nasi uduk, bakso, bubur, egg station, omelet, waffle / pancake. Honestly, i like the room, but not the food. Maybe im just over expected. Hope there is improvement in food also after renovated. Not only freshly made, but quality. Thanks for reading.

Newly renovated... well designed and neatly executed interior.
Went here after dinner time, so I did not take the buffet like the rest of the crowd. But the newly renovated interior amazed me.I found this place is well designed. Its spacious, color coordinated, well placed furniture (blocking arrangement) and well executed finishes. No overdo and gives us a break from the overhyped industrialized-ish interior. Surely it delivers the ambiance of cozy spot for hangouts, the one you want to spend your night chit chatting with friends in calm music and not-that dim-not-that-bright lighting scheme.
