Sakana is a Japanese restaurant located in the MidPlaza 1 office tower. It is one of the few authentic Izakaya in Jakarta, and as such, it is quite popular among the Japanese community.

If you are alone, it is probably best to sit at the bar, which looks modern and intimate. Otherwise you can sit in one of the small tatami rooms (private eating areas), in which you need to take off your shoes before entering.

I tried Sakana with a friend who eats there at least once a week and he considers it to be among the best venues in Jakarta for eating casual Japanese food. On that day, we tried two sets of dishes:
Yasai Itame set (Rp50,000)
Gyuniku Udon set (Rp88,000++)
Other dishes that my friend recommends: Yakitori, Sushis, and Takoyaki.

Overall: A perfect venue to try authentic Japanese cuisine in Jakarta. The food is good but it remains unpretentious and affordable. I will come back.
Opening hours:
Everyday, from 11.30am to 2pm and from 6pm to 10pm
