Luc Bar & Grill (Senopati)

By Jakarta100bars →
Luc is a Bar and Grill located near Jalan Gunawarman, in Senopati area. It was rather busy when I was there, with a crowd of Indonesian executives in their 30s/40s. I only tried a drink so I will just make a brief comment: Luc is well-designed, but it is not really original. It resembles quite many other popular cafés in Jakarta like  Loewy  and  Union . The food is rather expensive, especially the steaks. The waiters were friendly, as often in Indonesia. Overall : Luc is an enjoyable neighborhood restaurant, where I would go again if I was living in the Senopati area. It is not special enough though to be a must-go venue in this city.

Carnivor Grill Restaurant (The Meat Company)

By Unknown →
Carnivor is a small chain of steak and meat restaurants. They have four locations in Indonesia at the moment (see below for the list of Carnivor restaurants). I tried the branch of Pantai Indah Kapuk, one of the busiest restaurants in this area on that day. Carnivor seemed to be very popular with a young and trendy crowd, especially Indo-Chinese people. They have a nice atmosphere with good lounge music and a modern design. The toilets were quite dirty though. I had a Wagyu Ribeye for Rp 215k++ which isn't cheap but it was worth it since all was excellent: The cooking, the tenderness, the side dishes. Only the sauce was average. Overall : Recommended restaurant if you want to eat a quality, affordable steak in Jakarta.

Holy Gyu (Kebayoran Baru)

By Nyoman →
Well, I was supposed to go to Taco Local on Jl Panglima Polim, but it was closed, under renovation. so I decided to go to the restaurant right in front "Holy Gyu". It is a Japanese Grill, but in a more casual way. The place is very small and looks more like a fast-food chain. I went there on a Saturday night and the place was almost full, mostly Indonesian crowd. I really liked the meat I had. Both the meat and the vegetables were tasty  This place is for meat lovers, especially people who love Japanese-style meat, with Soy Sauce and vegetables on the side. Considering the high price of meat in Jakarta and in Indonesia in general, this place offers very affordable dishes. For 2 people we only paid 200 000 Rp. Usually, this can be the price of one dish in some Jakarta Restaurants. You also can have some Kobe Beef, which is known to be one of the most delicious beef in the world...

Astons Specialties (Bar, Coffee, Grill)

By Jakarta100bars →
Astons Specialties is a Singaporean chain of restaurants serving Western food and drinks. They have only one location in Indonesia currently, in Alam Sutera Living World Mall (next to Mercure Hotel). I wanted to try this place as I read that its owner wanted to bring "affordable western cuisine" especially steaks to its customers. I was disappointed when I saw the menu because the steaks were certainly not inexpensive: Minimum 130,000rp++ for Prime Sirloin, up to 260,000rp++ for the Wagyu Ribeye Grade 6. These prices are very standards for Jakarta and Astons will certainly not have a competitive advantage on the prices.

Hanamasa (All you can eat Restaurant)

By Nyoman →
Hanamasa is a All-you-can-eat Restaurant Chain in Indonesia, with Japanese Gril and Barbecue. It is quite popular and there are many outlets in Jakarta. I went to Hanamasa on Jl Mahakam (near Gran Mahakam Hotel) and I tried the food. I was not disappointed by the food: there is a fair choice of meat, vegetables and other condiments. You can either boil it or grill it (Shabu Shabu or Yakiniku). The crowd there is mostly indonesian and the different restaurants are pretty full on the week ends. I also found the place very clean with good service. The best part in my opinion is the price: It is only 100 000 Rp / 120 000 Rp to get a buffet menu. This is one of the lowest prices compared to the more than decent quality of the food. I would then recommend it as a good cheap alternative to a more fancy Korean BBQ.

White Hunter Ribs & Steaks (Indonesia)

By Jakarta100bars →
I tried White Hunter because it is one of the few Western-looking restaurants in Emporium Mall Pluit.  It is next to Han Gang and Incognito, which both belong to the same Medanese owner. I visited around 6pm and it was rather empty. Even worse, no music was playing so I was not sure if it was opened or not. I had a hamburger. The presentation was ok, but the meat was cold and not 100% beef. It really did not taste good. The only thing that saved the place was the staff who was very friendly.
