Jia (Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta)

by 10:49:00 AM

Jia is a contemporary Chinese dining and one of the newest restaurant by Shangri-La Hotel. You might notice that there is one restaurant that went missing with the addition of Jia. (yes it's Shang Palace) They decided to create a brand new restaurant with varieties of new menu and cozy yet youthful interior that's suitable for every age.

The interior was pretty much indicates Chinese restaurant with red-colored decoration (because it's still in Chinese New Year vibe!) and round table. The light inside the restaurant was pretty dim with wooden interior dominating the restaurant. Despite being a newcomer in the industry, I could see that they managed to attract many people as it was fully booked during my visit (wow!)

Without further ado, let's get started with their food!

Signature Peking Duck (Whole - IDR 398k or Half - IDR 218k)
Signature Peking Duck

Signature Peking Duck is one of their specialty and please keep in mind that pre-order is required for this menu because it took around 45 minutes to serve this food. The duck skin was perfectly crispy and nicely flavored without nutty smell. Oh, and you can choose the second way to eat the remaining duck meat and I chose myself the "Wrapped in Lettuce" one and it tasted super good!

Crispy Fried Beef in Honey Sauce (IDR 58k)

One of the best appetizer(s) that you really have to order! The crispy fried beef tasted like beef jerky with perfect crispness and the sweet honey sauce just made everything better!

One of their premium dimsum selection with the so-called bird's nest that will definitely do a good thing for your health. It tasted pretty delicious and I'm loving the green-colored dumpling skin!


Steamed Custard Buns with Salted Egg Yolk (IDR 32k)

I just love how they make those cute eyes for the dimsum (lol!). It's basically a bun filled with gooey and heavenly delicious salted egg yolk paste, it's definitely one of the must-have menu for those who love salted egg.

Steamed Soup Pork Dumpling (IDR 32k)

Steamed Soup Pork Dumpling or also known as Xiao Long Bao is dimsum with soup inside the dumpling skin. You have to bite the corner of it and slurp the soup before you eat the whole dimsum to enjoy it at its best!

One of their selection of noodle soup(s) that consists of minced pork with spicy soup. It tasted pretty delicious although I didn't find the soup to be spicy at all which might be good for those who can't handle spicy food!

Deep Fried Swan with Almond Sauce (IDR 32k)

You just can't deny that presentation is one of the most important aspects in food these days. I mean, just look at those cute swan on the plate! The pastry was filled with generous amount of almond sauce which has perfect level of sweetness!


Overall, I had a wonderful lunch at Jia, the food tasted delicious, the service was amazing and the place is great. I have to say that I'm quite shocked when I saw that the price of their food was so affordable despite it's being a hotel restaurant. I could see that they will become very crowded in the near future so you'd better make reservation before you go there. Last but not least, best of luck for Jia and thanks for having me!
