As part of the group that’s responsible for the well known restaurants such as Union, Canteen, Cork n Screw, this one also exhibits fantastic atmosphere with beautiful ambiance of clean,sleek interior with a nice touch of antique knick knacks as decorations. The menu, like the name, consisted of many Asian fusion dishes that’s refreshingly new for Jakarta’s culinary bunch.
