You might recall my post on Koi Restaurant & Gallery in Kemang I posted sometime ago. They closed the location I posted and opened a new location on Kemang Raya in September, 2010. My previous post was more about KOI Kemang’s old location’s gallery and this time I wanted to focus more on KOI restaurant.
I took my girls to KOI Kemang this morning on Sunday as my husband had to work. Boohoo. I wanted to have fun with them and KOI Kemang was a perfect place to be. We ordered a whole bunch of food (we actually had more than I showed in the photos) and ate them all. Yes, we were three hungry caterpillars.
KOI Kemang is my favorite restaurant in South Jakarta, Indonesia. Ever since our friends introduced us to KOI Kemang, I’m in love with this place. I love KOI’s modern interior of their restaurant and the food is wonderful. For people who love having a relaxing weekend breakfast or brunch on Saturday or Sunday in a serene space with jazz/bossa nova music, KOI is the place to be in Jakarta. The people who work at the KOI restaurant are very friendly. Even though KOI Kemang has a very sophisticated ambiance, you always see families with small kids in the restaurant. The floor staff is very friendly and I feel that the kids are welcomed. In general, Indonesians love kids, so I never felt that my kids were not welcome at any place.
The owner of KOI Restaurant and Gallery in Kemang are a Belgian and Indonesian couple. They own another location in Jalan Mahakan as well. I would’ve loved to meet them and hope that I will have a chance to meet them someday.

The restaurant is on Kemang Raya No.72. If you’re coming down Kemang Raya from the north of Kemang, it’ll be on your right between Pertamina Gas Station and Jalan Kamang Selatan 1 with the “Rattan House” sign in the corner. Look for the red KOI sign.
