With a name that is synonymous with culinary greatness, restaurateur and media personality Tom Aikens charms the industry with his creative innovations and esteemed accolades, including two Michelin stars to his name. After three successful restaurants in the UK and Abu Dhabi, the coveted name makes its mark in Indonesia with Tom’s by Tom Aikens in Jakarta.
Housed in the ultra-luxurious The Langham, Jakarta, the restaurant turned heads even before its opening. Since its introductory stage, Tom’s by Tom Aikens has been one of the capital city’s most popular dining destinations. The popular chef personally curated and designed the menu, basing it on fresh local and high-quality seasonal produce.
Brimming with classic European flavours, enhanced with innovative techniques and presentations, the menu at Tom’s already has signature favourites with quite the following. A stellar starter would be the wagyu tartare, with black garlic aioli, turnips and puffed wild rice. This classic dish is spruced up with a too-pretty-to-eat arrangement, reminiscent of a blooming flower, and a too-tasty-to-miss flavour to match.
Tom’s menu is compact but packed with flavoursome wonders, which makes it difficult to choose from amongst the star-studded main dishes. Prepare an expansive appetite for the grill section, especially for the succulent 30-day dry-aged porterhouse steak, bringing the juiciest goodness to your palate. The restaurant recently introduced a new menu curated by none other than Mr. Aikens himself, showcasing star dishes like lamb shank and salmon confit.
In addition, Tom’s invites diners to amp up their Sunday with the newly launched Sunday Roast, serving extravagant culinary offerings, from foie gras and chicken liver parfait with grape chutney and treacle-cured salmon, to prime rib roast, Chilean seabass and more.
Stepping into the restaurant, discerning diners will be greeted by the sophisticated opulence of a high ceiling fenced by floor-to-ceiling windows that invite the stunning Jakarta skyline in, classic patterned flooring, sleek leather seating and chic chandeliers.
To really step up the Tom’s experience a notch, opt for the restaurant’s The chef’s table area, where diners can marvel at the mesmerising magic performed by the culinary team in the open Marrone kitchen, as well as the Himalayan salt meat lockers and cheese and wine cabinets. The Marrone kitchen itself is an elaborate work of art, with six cooking stations and a state-of-the-art wood-fired oven and grill.
