Hanamasa is most likely the most famous all-you-can eat restaurant in Indonesia. For a fair price (about Rp96.000 before taxes at the time of writing this article), you can choose from the many, many fresh ingredients provided by Hanamasa for your pleasure. To be precise, with the price above, you may choose either to eat 'yakiniku' (lit. fried meat, but it means to use the grill to cook your ingredients) or shabu-shabu (to use a hot pot to boil the ingredients). If you want to taste both grilled meat and boiled vegetables, I recommend going there with a friend.
Moving on, the many kinds of ingredients available in every Hanamasa restaurant are provided in ample amounts (although on particularly busy days they might run out of them - don't worry though, they'd restock them ASAP). The ingredients include various kinds of meat -- either in slices, sausages, or some sort of mini-burger, one or two kinds of fish, chicken, squid, egg roll, chikuwa (Japanese fish sticks), tofu, meatball, mushroom, noodles, various kinds of vegetables, and more. There's no pork, though, because Indonesia is a country with Muslim as the majority.
They also have a salad bar with some dressing choices. It's a great place for vegans and vegetarians due to how Indonesian restaurants haven't really caught on to the concept of veganism and vegetarianism. And of course it's just as great for everyone else.
Other than the cook-it-yourself menu, they also have a robatayaki bar. It's where a chef will cook from a separate menu. The foods are grilled, but since the chef is likely to be more talented than the average customer and the food are more complex to prepare, the dishes are even more mouthwatering. You don't even have to pay extra for them, but remember to order what you want.
Moving on, their selection of drinks aren't as colorful as their ingredients, but it's good enough. They have hot tea, hot coffee, iced lemon tea, soda, thai tea, mineral water, and more. They also have some other drinks on their menu but you have to order and pay extra for them. No alcoholic drinks because the Islamic diet forbid them.
They also have dessert in form of 'es campur' and fresh fruits. The fresh fruits most likely include pineapple, melon, papaya, and watermelon slices. Es campur means 'mixed ice' and it's named like that because it's usually a mixture of ice shavings and various sweets (usually jelly-like). You can also add sweet sauces to further sweeten your dessert.
The atmosphere is not its biggest draw, but it's pleasant enough. The waitresses are always helpful and happy to help you. Don't hesitate to ask for another bowl of rice or if you need assistance with setting the flame level.
For this particular branch, Hanamasa Dago is locate nicely in the middle of Bandung that have practically everything, with easy access to and from shopping malls, boutiques, and other eateries. Be careful with the availability of the parking space though, as Hanamasa shares the same building with a few other restaurants and shops.
