“still one of my fave japanese restaurant in jakarta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2012

Been here several times. I admit there were times when they were degrading in quality. But last sunday I went there, there were a great improvement. In my opinion, Kikugawa has one of the most authentic taste of Japanese foods. The only a bit downfall to me is that they use local style tofu instead of original style japanese tofu. Overall, the foods is great and the price is very reasonable compare to other japanese restaurant in jakarta.

“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2011

I have heard good reviews from some friends about this legendary Japanese restaurant in Jakarta. I ordered Moriawase tempura, tempura udon and sashimi set. I was disappointed with the quality and the taste of the food. I think the restaurant management need to make a huge improvement to compete with other Japanese restaurant in town.
