Most of the large cities of the world have a sky dining concept. And most of them are super luxury ones which means you end up paying a premium for the sky dining experience. But, in Jakarta, the spiel is very different. It offers a great sky dining experience within a variety of budgets.
There are restaurants on the 9th and 10th floors of a building that is located right in the heart of the city and offers a great view of the city skyline and the myriad of lights below. The place is in Plaza Semanggi, a popular shopping mall of Jakarta. Here in the 9th and 10th floors there are coffee shops, bars, lounges and restaurants offering some excellent Indonesian and continental fare. Since there are many restaurants offering a variety of cuisines and catering to a variety of budgets, it is very popular with the locals especially the middle class of Jakarta. It is close to the main business district and also to the universities and hence sees a lot of customers every evening. The sky dining experience opens at 6 pm and goes on till 11 pm. The price of the food varies from 30,000 to 80,000 rupiah depending on restaurant and fare. And I think for that price, the overall ambience is a great deal. If you are in Jakarta, you definitely have to check out this sky dining spot.
