Late-Night Dining in Jakarta: 24-Hour Restaurants


AUGUST 01, 2015

Calling all night owls! Whether you’re an insomniac or trying to find a late bite before calling it a night, these 24-hour restaurants have you covered no matter when hunger strikes.

Aneka Bubur 786

Bubur ayam is one of the most comforting Indonesian foods so it only makes sense that you grab a porsi to help soak up that night’s libations. One of our favorite go-tos is Aneka Bubur 786, which has been serving up piping hot bowls of bubur ayam spesial for years in Radio Dalam.

Dim Sum Inc.

Dim Sum is traditionally a brunch dish but why wait until mid-morning to indulge. Get your fill whenever you want at Dim Sum Inc., personally we find that 2am is the magic hour for hot fresh baskets. And the interior is a great mix of cool and comfy, making it the perfect place to end a fun evening.

Kaca Mata

There is something about late-night dining that always makes you throw caution to the wind and indulge a little bit. If you’re not counting calories, may we suggest the porky, barbequey goodness of Kaca Mata? Although known for their tasty nasi campur, you can get their Chinese barbequed meats with noodles, soups or a la carte too.


Pantai Indah Kapuk is known as the new foodie epicenter of Jakarta so it’s no surprise to find an awesome 24-hour diner here too. Locale24 has a fun American diner theme and serves Western comfort food such as country fried steak with gravy, mac & cheese, and waffle and fried chicken. But that’s not all, there are lots of Indo favorites on the menu as well like sate and nasi goreng.

Warmo’s glowing light has been drawing in night owls and curing hunger pangs in Tebet for years. Not only are all of your favorite warung comfort foods are here, they are also quite delicious. This Tebet institution is so well-known that you shouldn’t be surprised to find fellow diners now matter what hour you visit.


Al-Tahrir, located at Plaza Festival, is the perfect spot to have a chilled out evening with friends, shisha, delicious Middle Eastern food (make sure you order their falafels!) and conversation that lasts all night long. Who says you have to rage all night to stay up late?
