Inviting diners to join ‘A Culinary Journey throughout the Indonesian Archipelago’, the restaurant features an extensive menu of authentic Indonesian cuisine made with passed down recipes done with a contemporary approach. The name of the restaurant derived from the legend of Kebo Iwa, a Balinese history that was written in ancient historical manuscripts from the 12th century about a kind-hearted, very strong giant who were feared by the Majapahit people.

Ji at Bale Sutra

At the heart of Ji Restaurant is Bale Sutra, a Kang XI period temple from 1706 that originated from China. This temple had been brought by some of the first immigrants that landed in Bali, and finally was rescued from the ruins by the Tugu founder and designer, Anhar Setjadibrata. Inside the Bale Sutra temple is an assemblage of majestic ancient arts and antiquities that carry the rich history left by the Chinese Peranakan immigrants as well as traces of the Japanese occupation in Indonesia in the 1940s.

Grand Rijsttafel

The most elaborate and lavish dining ceremonial ever existed in the colonial times in Batavia (Jakarta during the colonial time). Created by the inland Dutch to explore the best of what Indonesian food has to offer, the grand meal used to be served at the most high-end dinner for the Dutch officials at that time. The grandiose atmosphere is built upon the sumptuous menu on the table: Mounts of yellow rice surrounded by sampling of different Indonesian dishes varying in spices, color and flavors. It is a true journey for the taste buds.
