Always a joy to be back here! Still in business!
Don't be fooled by other review websites. This Jakarta culinary "evergreen" is still in business. Classic 1970s style décor. The only thing that changed over the last fifteen years that I have come here are - regrettably - the prices. Definitely in the $$-$$$ category but absolutely worth it for the quality of the food. Labeling itself as a Lebanese restaurant it definitely has a strong grounding in food from the Yemen as well. I won't name all the dishes except that the vegetables are fresh, the hummous is sublime but insufficient and the lamb melts on the tongue. Top marks for the date juice which tastes like a desert but is a new taste acquisition. Service is not the most friendly but is attentive and we are here for the food and not to make friends. Open late as a restaurant catering to mainly Middle East patrons should be. تَمَتَّعْ!

The best nasi mandi!
Best Nasi mandi I ever tried, the portion is big, even for me "rice" eater, i still need to share with my friend for one portion nasi mandi. I recommend you to book / reserve to secure the place, especially if you will come at meal time (lunch, dinner etc.,) I went there for breakfasting time at ramadhan, and it was packed! fortunately i did make a reservation. I ordered nasi mandi, they said nasi mandi is their very recommended food, and the dessert is OM ALI. The lamb is so moist and tasty and i love to come back just for their nasi mandi. The Om Ali dessert is mixed from fresh milk and bread and raisin, unique taste and i love it. You will get kurma, and a glass zam zam water for free and because i went there at ramadhan, they served me tajil for free too! (it is kolak pisang and is was sooo nice) This is family restaurant, casual outfit is very recommended to come here. and please note that the portion is quite big.

New Sindbad restaurant
This is an Arab restaurant. Their fried rice, rotti and mutton curry preparations are delicious. The price is reasonable
