Courtyard Restaurant - Jakarta

My mom and I just came back from a birthday dinner of my mom’s close friend. The birthday dinner was held at a Chinese restaurant named Courtyard at Plaza Indonesia on the 3rd floor.

This restaurant has a very nice ambience and the food tasted really good. Too bad, I didn’t get a chance to see the menu because the food was already ordered, so I've no idea of the names and prices of the food from this restaurant. Well, I think I will come back again someday to try the other food.


  1. pictures no3
    section 1
    i think is long beans cook with dried prawns.....

  2. The ambience and food look good, wonder how is the pricing for the food?

    Btw, Happy Easter!

    Don’t worry, the tukang-tukang posts will still coming, just a little break to show that Jakarta isn’t just full with tukang-tukang, hehehe….

    MTC: should come to visit Jakarta and try the food here :)

    little inbox: hehehe… can tell directly, ya?

  27. Have not tried Chinese Restaurant food as yet. The food can be presented better I think. It should be quite expensive as standard of living is higher in Jakarta.

  28. Thanks for your recommendation and i WILL TRY IT IF I HAVE A CHANCE TO visit this place. You are welcome to my blog at and hear some of our stories. We are equally pleased to look forward hearing from you in return,

  29. worldwindows: Yup, the standard living in Jakarta is quite high thus eating in this kind of restaurant can be very pricey :)

    james oh: Hi James, thanks for stopping by my blog. See you around :)

  30. Mmm, looks like great food. What fabulous pictures!

  31. elyse: The food was delicious :) Thanks, Elyse!

  32. Everything looks delicious as always. Your photos never cease to captivate me!!

  33. Hey, make sure the next round you got to jot down each name of the dish ok. :p

  34. donna-ffw: Thanks, Donna :D

    cariso: Yup! Definitely will jot down the menu and prices next time ;)

  35. You go to the most interesting restaurants Selby. I go to restaurants for the food but I also go for the ambiance, which I think makes the difference in your experience.
    I've never seen long beans in a market - only in photos. What do they taste like?

  36. my carolina kitchen: Long beans is a good source for protein. We usually like to cook it1/2 way (Sauté) in order to have a crunchy/crispy and tender texture. Hope that you can try it someday :)

    TNG: I like most of everything related to Chinese, ie.: chinese food, chinese language, chinese songs, chinese cultures and chinese guys! LOL
