August Has Broken into the 2024 Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants List

August is the first Jakarta-based restaurant to be ranked in the prestigious list and has also been named Best Restaurant in Indonesia.

August in Jakarta has been ranked No. 46 on the prestigious 2024 Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants List, sponsored by S. Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, during awards ceremonies held at the Grand InterContinental Parnas Seoul on Tuesday, 26 March 2024.

Winner of the American Express One To Watch Award 2023, August is the first Jakarta-based restaurant in the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants List’s eleven-year history to be ranked. August was also crowned Best Restaurant in Indonesia, being the only restaurant from Indonesia on the list.

Debuted in November 2021, August is helmed by chef-owner Hans Christian and managing partner Budi Cahyadi. Hans and Budi have created a dining space that is elegant but not intimidating to patrons at Jakarta’s Sudirman Central Business District.

The restaurant offers a unique culinary experience with a DNA firmly connected to modern techniques while championing Indonesian spices and flavours. Apart from being the founding duo’s birth month, August is also named to convey their goal of being respected and impressive, a theme that the team translates into both their personable service and the cuisine they present.

“We are equally delighted and humbled to receive these recognitions. All these are our gifts to our home city, Jakarta. We hope that it serves as a motivation for other chefs and restaurateurs to improve their craft to solidify Jakarta’s position as a culinary destination,” exclaimed Chef Hans.
