Went here on date night last week. Easily the best Japanese I've had in Jakarta after living here 2 years.

Get reservations and expect a darker and well designed interior. Cool to be seen, good views of Jakarta skyline, but also comfortable to sit in. Comfy chairs are important. Expect to see mostly expats and well-to-do locals under 40 here.

Everything we ordered was super. Special recollection of the Miso Cod which I would instantly reorder when I go back. Menu is a bit creative, but we enjoyed having a selection other than rolls to taste.

Definitely headed back in a few weeks. Too bad it's not closer to home. Value for money is ok depending on your choice of alcohol.

Tried out this Japanese restaurant, authentic dishes and cozy ambience. The service is good and proffesional. However bit pricey considering the small portion of the plates, but that's make a fine dining isn't it;)
