As Jakarta continues to grow as one of Indonesia’s multicultural hubs, a budding scene of vegetarian restaurants have sprung up to cater to the cities’ diverse citizens. Despite the variety of Indonesian dishes which offer both meat-based and plant-based cuisines, it’s still a gamble for vegetarians to find venues that offer interesting or unique meals. To help you find something that suits your palette, we’ve compiled a list of timeless and our favourite vegetarian restaurants in Jakarta.

Vegetarian Restaurants in Jakarta: Kinkitsuya

With one restaurant located in Pondok Indah Kapuk, and the other in Pamulang (South Tangerang), Kinkitsuya has quickly become a hotspot for its innovative approach to Japanese dishes.

3. Terra Senopati – Healthy Eating Made Easy

Vegetarian Restaurants in Jakarta: Terra

LDS Lifestyle Group, known for restaurants such as Cutt & Grill and Balboni Pizza, launched a new eatery called Terra in March of 2023. Taking inspiration from its name, Terra aims to make eating healthy simple and easy (like Mother Earth does for us). Terra isn’t strictly a vegetarian restaurant, which makes it great to bring along friends who aren’t vegetarian or are flexible in their vegetarian meals. Thanks to its focus on healthy eating, guests can be ensured their meals are not only vegetarian but also nutritious; just because a meal is vegetarian doesn’t mean it’s healthy! Some of the menu highlights include their Vegan Protein Burger, Vegetarian Delight Focaccia Tartine, and Tempeh Falafel Veggie Wrap. Alternatively, one could opt for their “Build-Your-Own” bowl with a selection of freshly cooked dishes. Choose your carb base, proteins of preference, and then vegetables and sauce! 

Opening Hours: Daily, 7.00 AM to 9.00 PM
Address: Jl. Suryo No. 32, Senopati, Jakarta 12180
WhatsApp: +628111138662
