Expect a menu featuring Hong Kong–style gourmet favorites prepared with premium ingredients.
There’s been a flurry of new Cantonese restaurants opening all over the Indonesian capital as of late, with Hong Kong–inspired eateries cropping up in neighborhoods from Dharmawangsa to PIK 2. Now, the Sudirman Central Business District is home to the first Southeast Asian outpost of T’ang Court, the three-Michelin-starred venue at The Langham, Hong Kong. Occupying a sky-high perch on the 61st floor of The Langham, Jakarta, the newly launched fine-diner pairs sweeping views of the city’s skyline with high-end Cantonese fare by chef Chong Kooi Sam and his kitchen team.
Menu highlights include the signature T’ang Court Peking duck, winter melon and white fungus soup, beef ribs in black pepper sauce, and duck meat fried rice. Seafood enthusiasts will want to try the deep-fried stuffed crab shell, steamed spotted grouper with shredded pork, crispy rice in lobster bisque, and flaming baked mud crab with turnip cake.
The elegant interiors were inspired by the Tang Dynasty, which is considered the golden age of ancient China. Paintings, calligraphy, and vases dotted throughout the space allude to that era, as do distinctive Tang-style sancai (literally “three color”) pottery horses, ceramics, and murals. A total of 160 patrons can be seated in the main hall and six private dining rooms; each of the latter are named after auspicious flowers such as the peony and plum blossom, and accommodate between eight and 24 people.
T’ang Court at The Langham, Jakarta is open for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and dinner from 5:30–10 p.m. daily; reservations should be made directly either through the hotel’s website or via sevenrooms.com.
