Waroeong Kopikoe, Jakarta


Waroeng Kopikoe is one of  authentic Indonesian Restauranta located in Central Park Shopping Mall. The concept of the restaurant is more on traditional design where the chair, table and floor made of wood. I would comment on poor customer service such as no smile, no greeting, no response when we inquired a seat.



The choices of the beverages more on Indonesia (Java) food. Perhaps introduce “chef” in once a while.

The taste of crispy mushroom is fair enough. Why? It’s because the mushroom’s quiet crispy but not really salty. For me, I do not really know how to fried crispy mushroom well. When I looked at the menu and picture, I saw quiet unique food that I never try before which is chilly padi fried rice. The smell of the fried rice quiet weird and the taste is not really delicious compare to normal fried rice. The most famous rice when we came to Java restaurant is “Nasi Uduk”. Nasi Uduk complete that waroeng kopikoe serve quiet satisfying for us.

The value of this restaurant is acceptable compare to other Indonesia restaurant.




Despite indoor ambiance, they have outdoor ambiance where you may enjoy central park garden view. This restaurant is suitable for chill out with friends, best friends, and couple.
