The ambiance is fantastic!
First of all, I would like to give a credit to the restaurant in giving the ambiance of Jakarta (Batavia, then) in 1920. I enjoyed the old photos and antiques decorated inside the restaurant. I came here with a friend to have a drink and it did not disappoint. I ordered the Meikwei Meikwei mocktail with plenty real strawberries! Refreshing after a walk around Jakarta and the price is still reasonable. Do make time to walk around and appreciate the decorations to understand better why they have the 1920 theme and absorb the feeling of being in Batavia in 1920.

Great ambiance for Chinese food
I ate here with a group of friends. This restaurant is part of a well-known chain (Tugu group) that does a great job with interior artwork, etc. to make you feel like you are eating in China (or Indonesia). I went expecting peranakan food, but the food is more chinese - as others have written it is not particularly spicy, etc. But it is really good chinese, and the setting is both formal but also fairly cozy - you don't need to dress up and the prices are reasonable. I would definitely go here again for meals if I am in the area and looking for a break from Indonesian food.

Fusion Chinese-Indonesian Fine-dining
Nomen est omen, the place didn‘t steel its name, the 1920 promisses what you get. The restaurant is a time machine, bringing you back to Shanghai in the 20ies of last century. Beautiful interior with genuine antique furniture in very pleasing surroundings. The food is delicious and of high quality. The serviceteam is discrete though is there when you need it and is very helpful e.g. to organize transport back to the hotel. This comes with a price though compared wirh western rates this still is good value for money. We felt very well here- already twice - and will certainly come back, the next time we visit Jakarta again.
