Entering Torigen Japanese Restaurant gave me an excellent first impression: Clean, neat and quiet, with smiling, welcoming staff. Inside, quite many clients, and among them a few Japanese people, which is always a good sign. The owner AND the cook in Torigen Wijaya are both Japanese also.
The menu is extra large with quality pics of the food items, making the choice of your meal easy, especially if you aren't a specialist of Japanese cuisine. You have all types of prices, from Rp35k for a dish to almost Rp200k for the Yakitori, with an average of Rp60k to Rp70k. It is not cheap but I consider it as decent for this type of restaurant. Torigen also has some exceptional dishes, such as the Chanko Nabe, a really heavy meal usually prepared for sumo wrestlers.
I went for something smaller though: The kimchi raamen (Rp 49k) and the little grilled fish sisyamo sioyaki (Rp 37k).
While the grilled fish was delicious, the raamen was lacking a bit of flavour compared to those I had previously. In spite of that, I still recommend you to try Torigen restaurant because they offer a quality dining experience for a reasonable price. A good address, if not the best Japanese restaurant in Jakarta.
Note: The restaurant Torigen we tried was the one in Bandung, where the chef is Indonesian. Location details
