At this time every time we want to eating out, not only the food menu is considered. The place and atmosphere of the restaurant is also examined whether it is good, clean, comfortable, or Instagramable? The latter is indeed as if it has become an opium of urban people. Social media is a means to exist, to see and be seen.
The Garden, a new restaurant at Pondok Indah Mall, South Jakarta offers a contemporary concept for dining in an atmosphere that deserves to be included in the Instagram application. Located on the ground floor Street Gallery area, this dining area stands out from other restaurants. Yes, this is because flowers fullfil the facade.
The food provided varies, from traditional Indonesian menus to international menus. The taste is good. However, dining time is limited to only 2 hours. But it does not mean that you must leave the table immediately after the two hours have passed. This policy is taken because many visitors want to feel the atmosphere of eating here.
The service is quite fast, the waiters are friendly, even willing to take photos of visitors who want to pose in various beautiful photo spots. When we just booked a table, they asked for our name and telephone number. After a day’s passing, they sent a thank you message of our visit. It’s an interesting and good gesture from them.
