Duncan Fransz leads Jakarta with his heart. It is the only, yes the sole, authentic Indonesian restaurant in the whole of South Africa. Conveniently situated on the five-hectare Sunhill Estate in the Stellenbosch winelands district, it has greatly contributed in raising the town's culinary reputation.

If it's your first visit you'll note something unique about the atmosphere. Well, it's as if Duncan, his wife Veronica and their dedicated staff love food and antiques more than they like money. You don't often experience that at restaurants.

Flavours are never in short supply at Jakarta. The flavour actually locks into the authentic Indonesian cuisine served in the world-renowned Rijsttafel (rice table) style.

Before we forge deeper into Jakarta, a note to the newcomer: Think rice. Think spicy side dishes served buffet-style. Think sambals, satay, fish, fruit, vegetables, pickles, nuts, chillies, coconut milk, prawns, chicken, beef and veal. It's basically a Dutch-colonial adaptation of the Indonesian "makan besar" (food fair).

Popular, you ask? Most definitely. Especially in Indonesia and the Netherlands. That's on the other side of the world though! Go ahead. Experience it right in the midst of the Boland.

Let's peek around the kitchen door!

No doubt, there's a sure hand at work here, Jakarta has its own emergency back-up power supply. Nothing is going to stop its patrons from fine dining. Duncan is a devoted tour guide to the heart of the Indonesian Rijsttafel.

Feast on up to nineteen different exotic dishes. This unique cuisine is further influenced by ingredients and cooking styles from the Middle East, India, China and Europe. In fact, many ingredients used by Duncan are given to him by some of the restaurant's overseas patrons.

Huge amounts of energy also goes into the preparation of a variety of appetizers, curries and seafood dishes.
