The restaurant offers a simple yet alluring design, reflecting a discreet Indonesian elegance. The venue is located inside a beautifully renovated Dutch colonial era house. Inside, guests can lounge upon modern rattan chairs, coupled by marble and wooden tables. The room is decorated with wooden display plates and an artisan chandelier, as well as jars filled with dried Indonesian indigenous herbs. In the background, the sounds of Indonesian songs play softly, warming the atmosphere into gentle sense of relaxation. Friendly staff will escort each guest from the entrance to their seat, serving a traditional welcome drink and explaining every dish served throughout the dinner.

NUSA Indonesian Gastronomy showcases a truly dynamic menu, that changes regularly depending upon what ingredients are available fresh from the farms located far and wide, from Sumatra to Papua. The set menu of 4 to 6 dishes (more on occasions), is served with additional amuse-bouche and mignardises. The cuisine reflects the edible story of Indonesia, with every dish embodied with an interesting story of its cultural background, highlighted through ingredients and origin. Defining the cuisine is a challenge: inspiration may be a local favourite, often available only at a certain times of the year, which makes it virtually unknown for other Indonesians living in different areas. Sometimes it is a popular local dish, revisited by Chef Ragil with a modern tweak, and other times it is just a new freestyle creation combining ingredients from different areas or fusing dishes into one plate.

The Chef & the Brigade


“Becoming a chef has always been my dream, and I remember when I was about 5 years old, my mother let me play and mix spices in her kitchen. When I grew up I realised that the Indonesian Archipelago was so vast and rich, yet unknown by most, so I started to focus on using local ingredients and authentic recipes, in order to respect our land and preserve our culinary heritage. My cuisine is about combining traditional cooking methods with modern presentations. I use Indonesian indigenous ingredients, supporting local farmers and celebrating the rich flavours of spices when incorporated in a dish. The purpose is to have food lovers enjoy not only the complex taste of Indonesian gastronomy, but to also appreciate the roots of Indonesian culture.”

We Care


At NUSA Indonesian Gastronomy, all the ingredients are resourced from small responsible farmers and producers across the breadth of Indonesia. We want to support these farmers and producers not only by continuously purchasing from them but also by sharing their stories to the world. To give financial support, we also give these


farmers a price guarantee. The chef also gives free training to the people in villages on how to make sambals and other products. We believe, in order to improve people’s lives, it is very important to empower them to be able to produce great products.


“Located in the vibrant district of Kemang, in South Jakarta, NUSA Indonesian Gastronomy is more than just a restaurant, it has the mission to use the best Indonesian harvests, to cultivate them using authentic cooking processes, and to display them in an artfully original way offering thus real taste, genuine characteristic and attractive contemporary presentation.”

Kim, the discoverer.
