Oasis restaurant was originally built as a private residence of the Dutch millionaire, Mr. F. Brandenburg van Oltsende, owner of tea, rubber and cinchona estates in 1928. The building has a well preserved Dutch colonial architecture, where teakwood beams span the high ceiling of the rooms and the checkered black and white tiles reflect the soft light of the crystal chandeliers.
Before becoming a restaurant, this beautiful place became the official residence of the United States Naval Attaché, and the official venue for the annual Marine Balls. Nowadays, Oasis restaurant introduced the Rijsttafel (Rice Table), a unique presentation of a variety of Indonesian food, served by a procession of twelve Indonesian waitresses. In addition, the place has also been known for its well known European cuisine.
