Waytuki Vegetarian Restaurant

Several months ago, I received an email from a reader. He found out my blog from his friend in Zambia. The reason why he wrote me an email is to recommend me a South Indian restaurant in Central Jakarta because it is his favorite restaurant and he always visits it whenever he comes to Jakarta.

So today, together with JenzCorner, Urukyu and Khusinbou, we gave it a try.

I like to eat Indian food though I rarely have the chance to eat it and frankly speaking, I'm not so familiar with Indian food; same thing with Urukyu and Khusinbou. Thus, we let JenzCorner to choose the food from the menu.

Biryani Meal - Rp. 32.000
Vegetable Briyani with herbs and spices served with Waytuki's side dishes and a drink (water or tea)

Papar Masala (4 pcs.) - Rp. 5.000
A delicate thin bread of minced plus flour with lemon and red chilies.

Masala Dosai - Rp. 22.000
A traditional South Indian thin bread with savory filling.

The filling of Masala Dosa are potato, onions, vegetables with spices.

Paneer Butter Masala - Rp. 33.000
Indian cottage cheese with curry sauce, tasted just like tofu.

Raita - Rp. 15.000
A cool fresh chutney, perfect to be eaten with the spicy Briyani meal.

Samosa (2 pcs.)- Rp. 10.000
Puff stuffed with vegetables and deep fried.
Vadai (2 pcs.)- Rp. 10.000
A South Indian snack made out lentils and deep fried.

  1. Yum! I love Indian food. I wish we had a better one here. It's great that this one is all vegetarian!

    1. mica: A good restaurant for people who want to eat Indian vegetarian food :)

  2. Looks nice, but what about the taste?

    1. tempo dulu: the taste of the food is decent. I like the Briyani rice.

  3. Waytuki on Facebook, w/address, menu, info, etc:


    Jalan Pintu Air Raya no.28 (Pasar Baru)
    (021) 3814146

  4. Idli and dosa are very popular snacks; like tummy fillers. South Indian fare comprises of idli, dosa, vada, uthapam, appams, sambhar, coconut chutney etc. Biryani is a North Indian speciality, no offense to South Indians, but they can't make Biryani or Paneer very well.

    1. u might want to try the briyani here, its delicious
