Restaurant Find Jakarta – May Star

Jakarta restaurant

31 Days in Jakarta Day 10

Last week was Chinese Mid Autumn Festival, we went to May Star, an upper market Chinese restaurant to enjoy some authentic Chinese fest.

There are many Chinese restaurants in Jakarta and May Star is one of the best. May Star is especially famous for the Dim Sum menu it serves. Its Dim Sum is tasty and fresh, one of the best among the many Dim Sum restaurant in Jakarta.

According to Worldwide Cost of Living Survey 2012, Jakarta is ranked no. 61 , up 8 places from last year. It is actually not cheap to eat in a good restaurant in Jakarta, especially when sea food is involved.

May Star serves sea food, chicken, pork, vegetables among many other things. Fish is seasonal price and is quite expensive. Luckily, we took advantage of the 30% off by paying with credit card.

In Jakarta, there are always promotions on in various restaurants. If you own a credit card, you can certainly take advantage of the deals from the restaurants, the savings can be as high as 50%.

  1. The food looks delicious.
    30 bucks for the fish is not that expensive, but I know that compared to Indonesian’s standard may be a little over priced.

      Yes, we know. But the average salary for a driver here is about USD200-300 per month. So it is expensive for locals. Lucky we can afford it.

  2. And luckily it is fresh. What a wonderful experience. Thanks for sharing your travels.

  3. Some genuinely great posts on this internet site , thankyou for contribution.
