It was my second visit to Goemon. It was on a Friday evening, and as you may know well, Jakarta's traffic on Friday evening was the worst, especially at Sudirman area, where Goemon was located. So, I was not enthusiastic about going there. Moreover, my first visit was not that memorable, but most of my friends really LOVED this place. They said it reminded them of an authentic Japanese depot in San Francisco area, where we went for college.

Luckily, the traffic was friendly that time. I wonder, it seemed that Jakarta traffic on Friday got friendly these days. *fingers crossed* It was on the 3rd floor of the Wisma Kyoei Prince. Once we stepped inside, it felt like we were not in Jakarta anymore, but in some place in Japan. There were 2 types of seating style here, one with the usual table and chair, and the other one, you sit on the tatami. The waitresses would ask you to take off your shoes, regardless of your seating option. Once we were seated, we then realized that everyone else there was Japanese expats. Most of them drank sake, and would speak louder as the night went

Tamago - Rp 20k

Gyutan - Rp 13k each

Chicken Katsu Curry - Rp 58k
Miso soup and salad were included in Chicken Katsu Curry set. The food was delicious, cheap, and came in big portion. The tamago was moist and had a hint of sweetness. The curry was good, and so did the gyutan. Here's what my friends ordered, but I didn't know the price of the Hamburg Steak.

Yaki udon - Rp 47k

They also gave us fruits for dessert for free. Anyway, the food was good, but to be honest, not too special. I'd rate them 3,5 star out of 5. Service was ok, but then again, it was not a high class restaurant. But the traffic always made me reluctant driving here. However, if you are looking for cheap authentic Japanese food, Goemon is the place to be. Reservation is highly recommended.
