The Manhattan Fish Market is a restaurant chain specializing in seafood dishes, either poached, grilled, fried, baked or flamed.

They are originally from Singapore, with branches in several countries in Asia and Middle East. In Indonesia, you can find them in Bali and Jakarta for the moment.

I took one of their signature dishes, the Small Flame (Rp129,000 +16% tax and service), which seemed very appetizing on the picture from the menu (you can see all of it here).
Small Flame (Rp129,000++)
They brought me the dish after a few minutes, and flame-grilled it for a few seconds in front of me. It is amusing but I'm not sure it serves a real purpose.

I was quite disappointed with my food as I realized it was just 3 tiny prawns, a fish fillet, some vegetables, french fries and rice. It tasted ok but it fell short of what I expect when paying Rp150,000 for non-imported items. Apart from the original presentation in a pan, there is nothing that differentiate their fish from much cheaper restaurants.
Overall: Unfortunately, as many restaurant chain, The Manhattan Fish Market is mostly about marketing. You buy an atmosphere and an image, but in terms of value for money it is poor.

I would recommend it to you only if you are receptive to themed restaurants and the fantasy world they bring you into. If you care more about finding proper food at a normal price, it is best to avoid.
