Bochi Bochi ☆ Japanese Restaurant in South Jakarta

April 29, 2012

Being Japanese, I feel the need to know a good Japanese restaurant in town. I do get asked about good Japanese restaurants in Jakarta or wherever I am. In Jakarta, I know several places that we like to go to. Please scroll down to the bottom for my personal recommendations.

Here is my new favorite Japanese restaurant in Jakarta: Bochi-Bochi. I would definitely go back and I can’t wait to bring my husband there. I had lunch there with my two lady friends. One of them was Japanese who told me about this place. I have been to Papaya, a Japanese grocery store, but I have never known that there was a Japanese restaurant right around the corner from Papaya! I absolutely loved having lunch at Bochi-Bochi. My friend said Bochi-Bochi made her feel like she was walking into a restaurant in Tokyo and she was right. You forget where you are because of the authentic food and ambiance.



I was there for lunch. Below photos are the examples of what you can have as a lunch set. The first one is a double carb set. You can pick two kinds of rice or noodle dish from a menu for IDR 79,000 a set. The second one is a 3-plate set. You pick 3 small dishes which come with a miso soup, rice and condiments. It is also IDR 79,000. I have never seen anything that is better priced that these and best of all, it was delicious!


This is how it looks at the entrance. 入り口はこんな感じ。

Recommendations for Japanese Restaurants in Jakarta, Indonesia
For a special occasion i.e. anniversary
We like Basara. Lunch at Basara is reasonable and good. Many business people go there. They have private rooms you can reserve for a group for no additional charge.

Sekitei in Hotel Dharmawangsa is really nice. It has a great ambiance, plus walking through the hotel itself is a treat. It is a great place for business as well. The lunch menu is reasonable.

For casual dining with a family
There is a place called “En” above Kamome, a Japanese supermarket, on Jalan Melawai. (Jl. Melawai Raya No. 189 B, Kebayoran Baru, Jakarta Selatan, INDONESIA 12160) Also above Kamome, there are a ramen place and Japanese curry rice restaurant.
