March 4, 2008 | JAKARTA, Japanese & Korean Cuisine, South Jakarta, With Pork


3 weeks ago, on Valentine’s day, we had dinner with several friends at Ajihara, an old school Japanese izakaya located at Melawai area. This place is our favorite spot when we want to have real Japanese cuisine, and it’s mostly frequented by Japanese expatriates. That’s why I think the place is authentic (compared to the famous & chic: sushi tei or other Japanese restaurants inside Jakarta’s many shopping centres).


Whenever we ate here, we never bothered to look at the menu. The waiter here already knew what we wanted to order. She suggested several dishes and we just agreed with her pick. Below are the menus that we usually order : beef/pork ramen 38K, gyutan (ox tongue) 38K, ika shoyu yaki (squid) 35K, assorted sashimi (with fresh wasabi) 110K, horenzo/enoki butter 23K, yaki meshi (Japanese fried rice) 38K, yaki gyoza 27K, yakitori 47K, soft shell crab 50K and salmon sashimi 75K. usually they also gave us a complimentary dish such as chicken wings. Overall I think the price was quite moderate.The service is good, and most of the dishes are very delicious. 🙂

    Salam kenal.
    Seharusnya restoran seperti Ajihara dan Kikugawa ini lebih diperkenalkan ke kalangan penikmat makanan jepang yang kebanyakan makan di resto2 Jepang fusion yang sekarang banyak bermunculan.
    Di sini lebih feel Jepangnya.

    Just came back from trying the place.The food was good, authentically Japanese and reasonably priced. The place was nice, kayak ngak lagi di Jakarta aja rasanya. Spent hours there just chatting with a friend.The service was good also. Thanks for sharing about this place. Will definitely go back there sometime.
