Nes­tled on the ground floor of the Sam­po­erna Strate­gic Square North Tower in cen­tral Jakarta, dis­cover Iseya Ja­panese Restau­rant. Spe­cial­iz­ing in ro­batayaki, a tra­di­tional method of cook­ing where skew­ered meats, seafood and veg­eta­bles are slow- grilled on a hot grill. A pop­u­lar choice is omakase (the chef’s choice), but there are other dishes too, like shabu- shabu, sukiyaki, sushi, don­buri and teppanyaki, all backed by an ex­cel­lent range of wines and pre­mium sakes.

For au­then­tic­ity, Iseya Ro­batayaki uses fresh veg­eta­bles, meats and seafood flown di­rectly from Ja­pan. The at­ten­tion to qual­ity is se­cond to none; the Kobe beef for ex­am­ple comes from a small farm in the city of Kobe where only the best is se­lected.

Fea­tur­ing a stun­ning com­bi­na­tion of clas­si­cal Euro­pean and Ja­panese mod­ernism, the restau­rant is el­e­gantly dec­o­rated with orig­i­nal teak floor­ing, nine- me­tre tall neo­clas­si­cal win­dows and an exquisitely over­sized ki­mono on dis­play. Fea­tur­ing a semi- pri­vate area and three pri­vate rooms, Iseya of­fers ex­clu­siv­ity and pri­vacy for groups of up to 50 peo­ple.

"Ex­pe­ri­ence au­then­tic and in­no­va­tive ro­batayaki with an air of ex­clu­siv­ity."
