Convoi, a new contemporary restaurant serving beloved Asian and Western comfort foods debuts in the ever-growing food & beverage scene in Jakarta on 10 August 2022. The restaurant is strategically located at Jalan Kesehatan Raya, a few minutes away from Pondok Indah and the Bintaro area, and is the first of its kind in the neighborhood. Conveniently accessible by those residing in the South Jakarta area and South Tangerang.
The restaurant resides in a modern architectural building designed by Bitte Design, a Jakarta-based design firm with an impressive portfolio of restaurants and bars in the capital. For Convoi, Bitte Design created a place to escape from the city hustle and bustle, and it dons a lush landscape and an overflowing pond to build a homey feeling. The restaurant has a main dining and bar area, two outdoor spaces, a mezzanine floor, and a private room for 16 people. In total, it can accommodate up to 210 guests.
“We foresee Convoi to cater all guests from family to young and urban people and also to become a hangout place when the night comes. We promise to do our best to bring the best food in town and host the best acoustic live music performances for crowd-seeking aficionados,” said Henry Marheroso, General Manager of Convoi.
“South Jakarta is an amazing culinary destination with an impressive food scene, and we are blessed with a strategic location on the main boulevard that connects South Jakarta with the vibrant South Tangerang district. I am very much looking forward to welcoming guests to Convoi,” he continues.
Convoi offers a large variety of Asian and Western comfort foods marrying traditional flavors and modern techniques. The bold move of the menu is the brainchild of Agus Sutikno, a skillful chef with 15 years of experience working at various prominent five-star hotels and establishments. Through Chef Sutikno’s wealth of knowledge and creativity, Convoi presents a menu focusing on well-known comfort foods and upping the ante regarding its serving and presentation.
