Discover the unknown flavours of Indonesia.

Indonesian restaurant showcasing recipes from over 600 of the archipelago’s islands. Translating to ‘tribe’ in Indonesian, Kaum is an authentic reflection of Indonesian ingredients, flavours and indigenous cooking methods.

The Story

The generational recipes featured on the menu are rarely shared outside of the islands and are considered some of the best unknown dishes around the world. From bamboo grilling, fermentation, slow cooking to caramelise, pit roasting, manual grinding, and skewer grilling, Kaum uses traditional cooking techniques to demonstrate the true breadth of Indonesian food.As well as enjoying new flavours, Kaum’s menu allows for learning about the geographic origins of the dishes, introducing lesser-known regions of Indonesia such as Aceh, Sulawesi and Maluku. To pair with the punchy flavours of the food, the drinks list at Kaum offers cocktails that experiment with fruit and spice-infused local spirits. A special line of Kaum cocktails have also been rested in handmade ceramic claypots for a month to preserve flavours and elevate smoothness.

The Source

Kaum works closely with small-scale and responsible food producers to procure the finest ingredients. The culinary team have travelled around the islands to develop relationships with many of Indonesia’s ethnic tribes and responsible small-scale producers, recognising their craftsmanship and the quality of their distinctive local produce. They conduct research in flavours, heritage values, and cooking techniques believing that cultural sustainability is just as important as environmental sustainability– all in order to share the magic that exists in Indonesian cooking.

The rice we serve was grown in the Heart of Bali by farmers working with Astungkara Way, a project focused on rice paddy ecosystem restoration and regenerative farming methods.

The Venue

The restaurant venue offers a contemporary and spacious setting, encouraging a lively yet relaxed ambience. Dishes are best enjoyed shared on communal tables, on the terrace overlooking the sunset. Expect good music, with curated soundscapes which will transport you to the far reaches of Indonesia. Suited for both smaller and larger groups.

Don’t forget to try the sambal.
