Sun going down, see another evening and lights getting turned on. A wide of green space laid on at front of one restaurant with ancient structural building theme. In moment, i immediately stunned with it where i just love the building picturing one of the heritage of the Dutch colonial era.

Through the glass door, come inside, i welcomed by very warm and friendly satff also smiley. Just got inside, i already been amazed by the interior and all properties at there. The colorful pattern are blending together beautiful pull out the classic and exclusive ambiance from past era.

Indeed, Tugu Kunstkring just running on since couple years ago, but this building have been stand right here since long time ago as the house of arts to promote the practice or performances of arts. Also it has been many historical stories that had been happening on here. Getting inside the dining room, it has a huge space, dimly lights, and the tables, chairs, paintings also pillars just looks stunning decorating the restaurant. 

All over the dining room showed up the classic architecture that brought us to past era of Ducth colonial. Other than that, we able to see the paintings around the wall those illustrated how the story when the Dutch colonialism happened in here and how the Bataviasche Kunstkring has been a silent witness for over 100 year. Of course, this restaurant has offering a menu just exactly following the concept, most all foods are consisted by Asia, Western and Indonesian surely.

But in here we are not only invited to enjoy the typical Indonesian food, we are going to try how the classic food from the Batavia old time era. Food with two mixed cultures between the Indonesian and Dutch, so even the menu using a netherlands language on it.

I can tell that each food have a good presentation and interesting. With prepared concept, they do sure served a perfection of ingredients to create an awesome cuisines. I ordered two special dishes typical of Batavia and one of recommended dish you have to try is Indonesische Biefstuk van Mevrouw Sonya Lee, a tenderloin steak served along with potato gratin, long beans, carrot and baby tomato. Once ready on table, it is really has good aroma and tempting alot.

The perfect red color and texture also super juicy. Each slice sure give an amazing sensation in my mouth. Along with well done seasoning give a perfect taste. I can assure you, all foods here are made of good quality of ingredients and the high standard of taste. Other than that, it also has good presentation that couldn't resist me to take a picture.

Don't forget, the complete the dining experience, they also provide a good service, politely, friendly, and even i have been accompanied by a staff to exploring the whole building with few of floors.

There is a several of private rooms could fit for 4 until over 20 persons. Each room has same ambiance but with different concept and room decorations. There also have a ball room where could fit about 50 persons i guess and it used to for an event

Overall my experience dining in here really incredible. Tasty food, beautiful place and good service sure give a perfect satisfy to me.
