Tien Chao Restaurant
At Grand Melia Jakarta
For those celebrating Christmas, New Year’s Eve, or who are just big fans of Chinese cuisine, Tien Chao is a great place to visit, not only for the fine, delectable dishes, but also the beautiful view overlooking the lush green garden and pond one level below. The interior is aesthetically pleasing with its touch of warmth and classy decor. Tien Chao, which translates as ”blissful palace”, is the Chinese restaurant at Gran Meliá Hotel Jakarta. As well as having irresistible signature dishes, over the Christmas and New Year period they will highlight several special set menus!
Tien Chao offers two of the more widely known types of Chinese cuisine: Cantonese and Szechuan. Chef Apep Hendrawan is the man behind Tien Chao and has kept the original taste of his dishes, but added a modern flair that makes them even more delectable! Tien Chao opens daily for lunch from 11.30AM – 2.30PM, with dinner from 6PM – 10.30PM.
We love the Crispy Chicken with Dragon Fruit in Wasabi Dressing as an opener, served on a dragon fruit, it has a sweet, savoury and sour taste. You’ll be surprised how the slice of dragon fruit completes the chicken. Next, try the Wok-Seared Lamb Rack Oriental Style. The lamb was another wonder, absolutely tender and delicious, served with spicy tofu cubes and topped with caramel sauce. Of course, what is Chinese food without noodles? Hail the Braised Szechuan “Dan Dan” Noodles with King Prawn, truly memorable and vibrant play of flavours that oozes across your taste buds in a good way. Major must try!
