I had dinner for my parents' anniversary here yesterday and I had no regret at all! The Korean dishes they served were just right. I've tried so many Korean restaurants in Jakarta and not one has surpassed The Grill's quality of meat and cooking. I'm surprised there are not so many people reviewing the restaurant, but dining here is definitely an excellent decision to make. Just a little tips from me, perhaps if you like to tip the helpful crews and put it inside the bill tray, better watch where the tip really goes because mine was definitely taken by the waitress herself. Well besides that, it was a pleasure to have dinner here.

Since 2008 i always have lunch here at least every2 weeks... The ambiance, service and the food was just great!!..

To be fair since the first time i had lunch here the only menu that i have was only Yakiniku Donburi lunch set..

But it was a great one..

The Grill in MidPlaza Jakarta has been a family favorite since they opened their doors in 2002 & they continue to maintain high-quality ingredients & coals as well as good service. Some of the offerings have changed since then but the core menu items remain the same & taste consistently very good!

The big difference between this restaurant & many other Korean restaurants in town are its ingredients & meat sauces/dipping, which makes for a truly delicious mix! Some great dishes include:

1. Simple but tasty garlic boiled in a small pan on the grill
2. Any of the meat dishes (you can grill yourself or have the server do it)
3. The raw vegetables are quite fresh & go nicely with the grilled meat dishes (some can be grilled too)
4. Bibimbap in the hot stone plate is excellent but the one served in the regular cold bowl is also good (sauce & fresh ingredients are key)
5. Hot tofu dish is spicy for those who "like them hot"

Ambiance is classy but dark tilings may make the place too cool for some people's taste. The Grill restaurant is located down a corridor from Ah Yat Abalone in MidPlaza.
