  •  Launched in September 2018, Salt & Palm has established itself as a staple
      of collective Indonesian culture and cuisine within Sydney’s Inner West.
  •  Adapting to Sydney’s evolving hospitality scene, Salt & Palm boasts a share-
      style menu, honouring traditional Indonesian recipes with hints of modern
      creative flair.
  •  Taking central positioning on Glebe Point Road, the venue is unassuming
      and resembles a quintessential federation home. Visitors are welcomed into
      a relaxed and leafy retreat with two generous courtyards and a central dining
      room and bar.
  •  Salt & Palm is the brainchild of Owner and Head Chef Natasya Soetantyo
      and is a culmination of generations of hospitality leaders spanning across
      Indonesia, Singapore and Australia.
  •  With her family based in both Indonesia and Singapore and running an
      impressive portfolio of restaurants and bars under their hospitality group
      Blue Waves Food Empire, Natasya took all she knew and threw it into Salt
      & Palm in Australia.
  •  With Natasya at the realm of the business and kitchen, Salt & Palm fosters
      female leadership in the hospitality industry with a female-dominated
      workplace, starkly contrasted to the statistics that show 90% of all hospitality
      leaders and CEOs in Australia are male.
