Good food, great ambiance
Samarra is one of the most unique restaurants available in Jakarta. It's my absolute must-take guests venue as it's interior is totally fantastic, one feels like stepping into a different world. The furnitures, eating cutleries, decorations all contribute to a sensuous, mystical middle eastern vibe, paired with the intoxicating smell of jasmine. The menu is unique, consisting of things not commonly found in other dining establishments, and The Samarra Sate collection is a must-have. A selection of different kinds of Indonesian sates, all cooked to perfection. As Samarra has a sister restaurant next door (literally), called Shanghai Blue, we can order from both places and I would like to recommend their fried lychee filled with crabmeat dish which is absolutely divine. There are many more great dishes to try such as the bedouin kambing (lamb) which is succulent and tender. Their middle eastern desserts are also tasty especially the silky rosewater pudding, which is just divine. I've been there many times and am never disappointed, plus their service is the best I've experienced ever. Very knowledgeable, accomodating, friendly and just overall superb, so pls tip the waiter generously because they're very deserving.

Hartelijke ontvangst waarna we naar boven werden begeleid. Verrassende inrichting, Arabische sferen. We bestelden sate met bijgerechten en nasi met lamsvlees. Allemaal heerlijk! Uiterst vriendelijk geholpen door Frangky! Aanrader bij een bezoek aan Jakarta.
