Midori has served Japanese cuisine enthusiasts with genuine, unpretentious dishes since the mid-90s, long before Japanese cuisine became popular in Jakarta. Despite many Japanese restaurant offering similar menus, diners find themselves drawn back to Midori again, which explains why the restaurant has constantly received recommendations for Japanese dining as well as several annual accolades praising its consistent quality. That this quality is maintained despite the opening of many branches, some of which are overa decadeold, is astonishing.
The overall quality and straight-to-the-bussiness ambience is exemplified by the Menteng branch. Raw decor materials, dominated by dark wood furniture, project a homey and comfortable feeling under well-arranged mood lighting. Many of the dishes offered are known as Midori staples, such as the value-oriented Bento packages. Other ala carte favorites include Miso Ramen, and Ebi tenpura. Midori also offers fresh Sashimi, Shabu-Shabu, and Sukiyaki. The restaurant’s specialty of well-blended Midori Special juice is a great choice to cap off a genuine Japanese dining experience in one of Jakarta’s classic restaurants.
