We have found a new restaurant in Jakarta – The Red Bean Restaurant recently. You might like the Red Bean Restaurant.
Well, technically, Red Bean Restaurant is not a new restaurant. We have seen its branches in many shopping malls in Jakarta. Just we haven’t tried this particular Red Bean Restaurant before.
The Red Bean Restaurant we go to is in Poins Square, a locally shopping mall in south Jakarta. It is not a very fancy shopping mall so to speak and is always crowded.
But the good thing about this Red Bean Restaurant is it was newly opened last year, and is quite bright, clean and modem. It is located on the top floor of the Poins Square shopping mall and has less customers. Lucky for us as we always try to avoid crowded places. Indonesia is the 4th most populated country in the world. Crowd avoiding is an art here. 😀
Banner at the entrance of Red Bean Restaurant. They serve Oriental / Fusion dishes.
Nice ambiance. No smoking is what we like when we go out with Miss D. Quite family (kids) friendly, don’t you think?
Customers are mostly local Indonesians and families. So many babies in this photo, but it didn’t feel very noisy that day. Not at all. Something to do with the ambiance?The lights and walls might have a magical calming factor on the babies?
Food served is fast, and prices are very reasonable, within reach of the local people.
Wall features. A lot more similar ones on the walls. Nice touch.
These are what we ordered:
Guong Bao Ayam (Chinese Sichuan style chilli chicken)

Easiest drink to order. Served in all Indonesia restaurants. When we run out of ideas to order drinks, we just order the good, old Ice Lemon Tea. Can’t go wrong most of the time.
