There are many similarities between Indian and Indonesian cuisine: both explore a range of spices while also catering to both omnivores and vegetarians. So it is no shock that amazing Indian restaurants have opened up across the capital, offering a wide variety of food from all over India. For those looking for their next Indian meal, here is a list of eight Indian restaurants that celebrate the cuisine in amazing ways. 

Ganesha Ek Sanskriti

As soon as you work into Ganesha your taste buds will start getting excited. The aromas that fill the restaurants are as amazing as the food. The Kemang branch is slightly smaller and therefore great for small groups and couples, while the Sudirman site is much larger but has slightly better food.
