Okuzono Japanese Dining @ Senopati

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5 Recently, there’s been some big changes on the streets of Senopati and Okuzono is one hype spot attracting huge crowd. This place has put some good emphasis on the interior – which is one of the key attraction factor – and food quality is also over par standard. I especially enjoyed the…

Raja Bali Restaurant @ Nusa Dua, Bali

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 I don’t know how they do it but Google review rates them 4.8/5. Since we were staying at Nusa Dua, we decided to pay a visit to the best restaurant in Nusa Dua. Cutting to the chase, servers were EXTREMELY friendly. Yes, it’s good, but I’m not sure whether this is authentic…

Bubu Seafood and Chinese Restaurant @ Nusa Dua, Bali

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5 Conclusion first! I’m definitely coming back for more! Fresh quality seafood with VERY VERY moderate seasoning. This is one of the few less-salty Indonesian restaurant that I’ve ever had in Indonesia. I would recommend going for the crab (Chili and Steamed) and prawn (Garlic) for mains. For the sides, kangkung, bihoon goreng…

Koki Restaurant 꼬끼 @ Nusa Dua, Bali

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 Bali pork is well reputed for its quality. And the rumor turned out to be true. Our visit to Koki 꼬끼 – a Korean restaurant – revealed that pork belly was as good as the ones you get in Korea. Also, their ban chan 반찬 was quite good and seasoned just right….

Alto @ Four Seasons Hotel

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5 Alto is located at the upper level of the Four Seasons Hotel. It boasts the fancy European interior with two beautiful views of the city. Service was prompt and professional. Servings were quite decent in portion and had fabulous sophistication to them. I had the grilled salmon and I can surely say…

Samwon Garden 삼원가든 @ Plaza Indonesia

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5 I have always considered Samwon Garden 삼원가든 to be the best Korean restaurant in Indonesia. Samwon Garden 삼원가든 recently expanded its presence in Indonesia by nesting in a new spot in Plaza Indonesia. It has the same top-notch quality of Samwon while tuning down the portion and the price. Also, Samwon Garden…

1945 Restaurant @ Fairmont Hotel

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5 Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think 1945 is the only Indonesian restaurant at a 5-star hotel in Jakarta. The interior was fantastic and waitresses were amazingly friendly. DEEP! I think this is the best way to describe my taste experience here. 1945 gave me a deep taste of Indonesia. Servings…

Penang Bistro @ Senayan City

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 Penang Bistro serves Malay dishes with a slight fusion twist to them. Cutting to the chase, Penang Bistro was missing the ‘wow’ factor and was a bit salty for me. However, they are strategically located across hot spots in Jakarta taking up sizable spaces – they can accommodate large gatherings.

Mr. Fox @ Energy Building

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 Mr. Fox had amazing ambience and was located at a strategic spot in SCBD. Dishes were mostly Asian with a slight fusion twist to them. Some of the dishes that impressed me were spicy tuna feuillette, KFC, and green curry barramundi. Would visit again for beer and casual hangout. For food, I…

AW Kitchen @ Plaza Senayan

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 Slightly dark ambience was quite refreshing as it seemed to attract many young couples. I can’t remember the last time I visited a place like this with my wife 🙂 Anyway, food was generic and largely expected, missing the ‘wow’ factor. Simply, it wasn’t bad but not all that good either.

[SG] Song Fa Bak Kut Teh @ New Bridge Road

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5 I admit I was a bit excited about visiting the true home of Song Fa Bak Kut Teh. The experience was mixed. On one side, I was a bit disappointed that the original Song Fa Bak Kut Teh was not an inch better than the Jakarta franchise; but also amazed by how…

[SG] Seoul Restaurant @ The Regent Hotel

Taystar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5 It’s quite difficult to find a good Korean restaurant in Singapore, but I think Seoul Restaurant would be labeled as one of the good Korean food places. Ban Chan 반찬 was nicely presented on the table and they were above average. Bulgogi 불고기 was a bit sugary for me but suited the…
