Before sampling the menu, the standout feature of Merah Putih is the huge atrium-style expanse of the main dining area with its cathedralesque arches and immense floor-to-ceiling windows. The indoor garden oasis with palm trees is part of the restaurant ecosystem with solar filtered glass letting the light in and keeping the heat out. Near-translucent columns capture rainwater for recycling in streams within the restaurant and the overall effect is a light and airy space. Alongside this main dining area, there are also three teak dining pods for private dining, creating more intimate dining experiences. Aside from the grand gesture of its incredible design, Merah Putih is also famed for its authentic Indonesian food served in the traditional sharing style in the middle of the table. The menu of small and large plates also features contemporary Indonesian creations which inject a sense of artistic temperament to the menu alongside the eco design.
