Again, it's dinner date time with my fellow foodies. We hang-out quite often recently, and it's been such great moments spending time with them.
For this occasion, we chose a place quite strategic, located in the heart of Jakarta, in which we thought that there would be so sooo many good places to eat could be found. Grand Indonesia Shopping Town (GIST) was our destination. This place has got tons of cool spots to eat. And for that day we chose a restaurant which is at Level 5 of GIST, the coolest level with a line of happening restaurants. The restaurant we chose was a Japanese cuisine restaurant, Tairyo.
It's also a coincidence I went here to write a review for my participation in the Treat & Tell Level 5 competition for foodbloggers held by GIST. So here goes, and wish me luck, Eaters.
Tairyo offers choices of All You Can Eat menus. There are choices between:
Package A - IDR 170K ++
Package B - IDR 250K ++
or the Full Package where you can enjoy all the menus in Tairyo for IDR 320K ++.
But you can still opt for the Ala Carte if you're not a big eater.
Let's see what I tried here.
Salmon Aburi Sushi.
Fillet Lamb with Garlic.
Red Wine Tongue.
Teppanyaki Mixed Vegetable.
Fried Rice With Salmon.
The chef actually asked me to try a spoon of the rice as it was being cooked just to checked wether the level of saltiness was my desirable level. It's another benefit factor from sitting near the cooking area.
The salmon was a bit plain, I think it's best to eat it together with the rice.
Ice Ocha - IDR 10K (refillable).
Overall, it was a nice dining experience for me. I felt the hospitality from the staffs and even the chef was pretty nice and willing to let me asked quite a lot of questions.
Choosing an AYCE restaurant can be tricky sometimes. It takes good references to pick an AYCE restaurant that won't serve you downgraded quality foods. Luckily, you won't see that here.
Do remember even though this is an AYCE restaurant, the concept is not a buffet. So be sure to order quite much at first since the foods are cooked to order. You certainly don't want to take pause too long between each menu, since it will fastened you to feel full.
So in the end, if you're craving for teppanyaki, this is a good choice of restaurant for you. Just remember, it's quite pricey.
Keep on chewing!
