A glowing purple, sweeping curved bar with an outstanding selection of stunning cocktails, spirits and wines from an exceptional wine list, greets diners as they enter and is ideal for pre- and post-meal drinks. The flowing layout allows for a choice of various seating options, while two private dining rooms comfortably seat 10 each, or can be combined for larger parties.
In the short time that it has been open, the restaurant has already become popular with the city’s socialites, business people, friends catching up and couples enjoying a romantic meal, while at the weekends, families are added to the mix. The super talented chefs are passionate about creating unique, contemporary Chinese dishes that combine traditional influences, modern techniques and make the most of seasonal ingredients.

At the helm of Chāo Cháo’s cuisine is Chef Chong Chee Wah, bringing a wealth of knowledge with 20 years of experience as a head chef, having worked in Singapore, India, China, Australia and currently expanding the gustatory boundaries of Jakarta’s food scene.
