"bukan ini restoran" is an incorrect translation for "this is not a restaurant". furthermore, it is considered as unnatural sentence structure and the meaning also is unclear.
if we want to keep the current wording, maybe by adding a comma it will become a better sentence. "bukan, ini restoran". but still it is an incorrent translation for the english phrase in question. it means "no it is not, this is a restaurant". maybe as an answer when someone asked "apakah ini toko?" (is this a shop) for example. then you answer "bukan, ini restoran".
swapping ini and restaurant, also create another proper sentence. but still the meaning is different. "bukan restoran ini" means "not this restaurant".
