Sana Sini restaurant at the Pullman Jakarta offers its guests a variety of dining options in an intimate yet spacious setting, writes Maina A. Harjani
Steering away from the typical restaurant concept, Sana Sini, which is located strategically on the ground floor of the Pullman Jakarta in the city’s CBD, offers its guests a buffet selection of cuisines, ranging from Chinese, Japanese, Mediterranean and Indonesian for lunch and dinner options. Each buffet booth has been meticulously designed to suit the cuisine it offers. Although one might find oneself a little lost in the maze, the variety of dishes presented is impressive. The open-kitchen concept provides guests with the opportunity of having a thorough look into the dishes prepared by the restaurant’s talented chefs. Each cuisine booth has an allocated number of expatriate chefs and assistants to provide guests with only the best-quality food. Sana Sini’s in-house chefs hail from China, Japan, the US and France, and they work alongside two Indonesian experts. Jakarta is a city whose inhabitants seem to be continuously moving towards more healthy styles of living with more and more lifestyle choices. In recognition of this, Sana Sini offers its guests the opportunity to carefully select the herbs to be used in cooking particular dishes. This is made possible through the availability of herbal pot plants throughout the restaurant. An excellent variety of imported cheeses and beef is also available for restaurant guests. Accompanying the four cuisines is a dessert station located in the corner of the restaurant. The variety of dishes available doesn’t disappoint. And for wine enthusiasts, Sana Sini offers a great selection of bottles from various countries. Despite boasting a spatial feel, the teakwood furniture and dim yellow lighting give the place a chic and cozy ambience. Moreover, guests are also able to opt for semi-private options, including sofas and intimate booths, which provide a warm and stylish dining environment.
