Exquisite Taste - - Best Japanese Restaurant : Jakarta -

Lo­cated in Jakarta's prime lo­ca­tion, just right by the Ho­tel In­done­sia round­about, OKU of­fers a Zen sanc­tu­ary serving finest Ja­panese dishes and cel­e­brat­ing tra­di­tional recipes with a con­tem­po­rary twist. Chef Kazu­masa Yazawa – or Chef Kaz – is at the helm with his cook­ing phi­los­o­phy that pays homage to all the prod­ucts and in­gre­di­ents used, which are mostly im­ported from Ja­pan – OKU's sashimi se­lec­tion is di­rectly sourced from the famed Tsuk­iji Mar­ket.

“In Ja­panese cul­ture, we be­lieve that we take the spir­its and souls from the in­gre­di­ents' ori­gins and use them to re­plen­ish our­selves, so we are giv­ing honour and grat­i­tude to the or­gan­isms that orig­i­nally housed those spir­its.”

Kaz be­lieves that cook­ing should re­veal the life story of what you eat. The name OKU also de­scribes the process of peel­ing onion lay­ers, por­tray­ing the culi­nary jour­ney to be ex­pe­ri­enced at the restau­rant while savour­ing the “life sto­ries”.

If you're up for an ad­ven­tur­ous jour­ney, opt for the Okukase menu – a clever word­play on omakase, or the chef's spe­cials. Crafted from the fresh­est sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents avail­able at the mo­ment, the Okukase menu brings rich flavour and ex­cite­ment to your din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. For a more prac­ti­cal meal, the OKU Bento is a favourite among the loyal clien­tele. Suit­able for busi­ness or so­cial meet­ings, the pack­age com­prises an ap­pe­tiser, de­li­cious main and a sub­lime dessert to wrap it up – per­fect for city dwellers who are con­stantly on the go.

All in all, OKU of­fers world-class Ja­panese cui­sine in an ap­pro­pri­ately themed en­vi­ron­ment, promis­ing a qual­ity time, be it busi­ness or per­sonal.
