Why does a restaurant find mention in a pub review? Rajah Inn has a special place for me as a place for that cool, relaxing, slow drink.
This place has authentic character. It is an old bungalow converted into something that looks far more like an English Colonial Pub than the Indonesian restaurant it is supposed to be. Wicker chairs and oak barrels converted to tables adorn the veranda, which overlooks a green, shady park. The authentic colonial look is carried quite far – down to the retro-looking Gajah matchboxes. Inside is dark, cozy teak wood panelling that encourages you to stay drunk in there and not move.
I sat outside at lunchtime, drinking beer, relaxing over the view of the park and watching the colourfully advertised buses go by. The weather is not always suitable for this sort of thing, but inside is all dark teak wood, warm, cosy, softly lighted and quiet enough to carry out a conversation. The have a wide, generous, teak bar counter also, where you can sit and chat with the bartender if alone.
