Established with the concept of natural fine dining, celebrating Indonesia’s rich culinary diversity, Bungarampai serves culinary delights from around the nation’s archipelago under one roof in a historical landmark building.
Officially established on 7 July 2007, Bungarampai is built on the spirit of preserving and promoting the quality of authentic Indonesian cuisine. The restaurant’s singular venue also once served as a witness to many of Indonesia’s national personages as they master-planned the birth of a new nation. In Indonesia, Bungarampai means a traditional colourful bouquet of assorted blooms especially prepared for celebratory occasions. Either as a traditional flower arrangement or a turn of phrase for anthology, it entails a profound connotation of unity in diversity.
Residing in an elegant piece of colonial architecture located at Jalan Teuku Cik Ditiro in a prestigious area of Menteng, the building was once the meeting point for Indonesian national figures during the Revolution era. It still maintains the original structure with a classic exterior and interior design, which blends harmoniously with the modern environment.
After renovation in mid-2013, Bungarampai has been transformed into a three-story restaurant that can accommodate approximately 300-600 people for various types of events. While still embodying a romantic colonial nuance, the interior is also embellished with a blend of bold colours such as black, grey, and gold together with eclectic decorations. The interior design highlights an array of Palembang ornaments such as framed Songket cloth, carved cabinets and various lacquer decorations on certain corners.
Paying homage to this unique heritage, Bungarampai serves as a culinary portal within a unique botanical theme. Every entrée is prepared with impeccable perfection and served to be as visually appealing as it is flavourful. Whether it is Nasi Seruni, Nasi Bali Dewata, Sate Marangi, Ayam Tangkap, Sate Lilit Uluwatu, Salad Kecipir or Sayur Lodeh Gedongan, each dish is prepared using authentic Indonesian recipes dating back to ancestral roots, yet still in tune with today’s palate. Every Sunday morning, the restaurant’s Toko Kueh also serves a Sarapan Pagi or breakfast menu with a diverse special buffet of Indonesian delicacies.
Bungarampai is renowned for several prestigious accolades throughout its existence, including the Anugerah Adikarya Wisata 2019 from the Governor of Jakarta, and has been named one of Asia’s Finest Restaurants by The Miele Guide three times, while also receiving an IGC Certificate from the Indonesian Gastronomy Community. It has also served some prominent high-profile figures and international conferences, including World Bank Group Spring Meetings in 2017 and 2018 in Washington DC, Indonesian Night at World Economy Forum Davos in Switzerland from 2015 to 2020, the International Monetary Fund, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Presidential Palace of the Republic of Indonesia.
