How was your weekend? I hope everyone rested well :) Last week on Wednesday, one of my colleague treat me and my other colleague for lunch and she let me choose the restaurant. Isn't she just nice? I was craving for Japanese food the day before, so I went to search high and low for an authentic Japanese food that serves really good chirashi and sashimi. So, based on the recommendation from my fellow IG friend, we went to Kinokawa Japanese. It's not far from where I work, and I heard they serve very nice sushi and sashimi. And boy, we had such a sumptuous lunch that day!
The place is located in an office building in Thamrin area, you can easily access the restaurant from the parking lot on the 8th floor. The place surely is a hidden gem, it is small and authentic. You can really tell that the restaurant has been there for quite sometime. For lunch they have limited menus, such as varieties of donburi, sushi, and sashimi. So we went and ordered the 2 portion Sashimi Teishoku (148K each) and Nigiri Sushi (142K). It is quite pricey, but you get what you paid for.
The sashimi was amazing. They were super fresh and delicious! If you are a sashimi lover, you should definitely give this place a go. And the Sushi were not disappoint either. They were fresh and flavorful :)
The only feedback I have for them is the service could be improved a little and some staff are lack of knowledge. Other than that my dining experience was a hit! Please enjoy the pictures :)
Our 2 bowl full of Sashimi. Oops the first one is almost finished :p
And at the end of your meal, each of you will get free ice cream for dessert. You can choose ogura, lime, orange, or green tea. Yeay!
Final verdict : will I come back? Yes, definitely!
