Known as one the recommended places for fine dining in Jakarta, Cassis has changed into a new concept with new name Cassis Kitchen. With the new concept, Cassis Kitchen is more likely to casual dining place.
AnakJajan honestly love the new concept from Cassis Kitchen, now we can enjoy the meal casually without being too formal in a more reasonable price and of course still with a great quality .
Talking about the place, the restaurant has a modern and lux decor, on the other side the new Lounge area will be launched very soon. The restaurant opens on lunch or dinner time, AnakJajan always love the lunch ambiance there since the restaurant’s window is facing lush green plants resulting a very calm and cozy vibes.
The price range for the food in Cassis Kitchen is between IDR 55k to IDR 450k with wide range of alcohol and non alcohol drinks. Here are some of the recommended and signature dishes:
To start the meal, AnakJajan had the complimentary Lemon Sorbet and soft warm bread. The sweet sour and refreshing sorbet was the perfect started, it did a great job in increasing my appetite.

Smooth, crunchy and creamy in each spoonful. The combination between crispy potato crouton, creme and caviar was very enjoyable, the caviar gave the dish a lux savory and rich taste.

Such a unique and tasty combination.
