AB Steak by Chef Akira Back @ MD Place Setiabudi

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 My thoughts during my review were concentrated on whether this is a four-star or a five-star steak house. Well, my final consideration covers food and PRICE. In terms of steak quality, this place is no doubt a five-star restaurant. Amazing service, dark-moody ambience, and quality aged beef on the charcoal grill. I say…

Singapore Hainanese Chicken Rice @ Gandaria City

Taystar ⭐️/5 One of the main reasons why I don’t like going to food courts and/or franchise shops is because the workers preparing the food have no respect for the food they serve. I’m sure that the food was well developed in the first place but later was not taken care of expecting that people…

Miu Ishinabe @ Summitmas Bldg

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 What a clean, nice, and well organized place? The place is so organized from the moment I stepped in. I loved the color display the chef adopted to the sushi. Taste of each sushi was unique and alive. Curry and Udon were well harmonized with beef contents supplementing the texture in my mouth….

Pand’or @ Jl. Wijaya 1

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 Very well-presented cozy interior design suited perfectly for women… Well, my wife loved the place. Other than the external factors, black coffee was a bit bitter and strong for my taste. On the other hand, my wife’s cappuccino was slightly too milky. However, The cheese cake was a surprise takeaway from Pand’or.

Kinokawa @ SCBD

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 This place was a bit of a surprise. Sashimi was fresh, thick and surprisingly juicy. Nigiri and Chirashi sushi were both nicely presented with amazing taste to each bite. Udon was also refreshing with thick broth to it. I would give the place higher score until I found a roach roaming around the…

Pardon My French @ Wahid Hasyim

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 Pardon My French is a trendy hangout dining place serving continental dishes with a “slight” taste of French and Japanese. Interior was done with a modern taste to it, but overall the finishing fell a bit short to the high-quality standard. Food was not as sophisticated as the name of the place suggests,…

Basque Bar de Tapas @ Mega Kuningan

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 Other than the ugly traffic to Kuningan, Basque Bar de Tapas is an amazing dine out place to go in Jakarta. I think the concept is more like a casual after-work wine drinking spot with various selection of spanish tapas. If you feel like relaxing that work stress even further, go straight to…

Pempek Megaria @ Metropole XXI

Taystar ⭐️⭐️/5 Quite fancy ambience. It felt like a small town with a movie theatre in the middle. We got a quick bite of my favorite mie ayam. Cutting to the chase, noodle was overcooked, soggy and fat, chicken chunks were hard with small bone particles attached. The upside surprise was the crispiness of the…

Kaca Mata @ Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK)

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 The one flavor that I quite don’t understand until now is the sugary flavor in Chinese-Indonesian food. Kaca Mata serves various meat – which had diverse taste to them – served with rice or noodles. The meat flavors were not that sophisticated nor deep but were good value worth. Pork belly chucks were…

LL One @ Royal Tulip, Gunung Gelis

Taystar ⭐️/5 This buffet restaurant looks great from the outside, but the inside was rotten to the bone. Food quality was terrible, margins were considered ahead of customers, staff faces were gloomy, and service was ugly. For a quick illustration, when we were done with our first-round of plates, no staff wanted to takeaway the…

Fire Grill & Bar @ Royal Tulip, Gunung Gelis

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 This was my holiday getaway from the smoggy Jakarta. Our family decided to visit Bogor to detox our body and soul. Our first lunch experience was at Fire Grill & Bar. We had several menus including pizza, hamburger, ribs, salad and naan. Overall, the grill dishes were fabulous, especially the burger which had…

Asli Mie Keriting P. Siantar @ Pluit

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 Mie Ayam is one of my favorite food addictions here in Indonesia. I love the simpleness, diversity, and the richness of the cuisine. My Indonesian friend invited me to his favorite mie ayam place in the upper part of Jakarta – Pluit. The place is called Asli Mie Keriting P. Siantar. Unlike the…
