Since the late 70’s, the number of Japanese restaurants in Indonesia had massively increased. This happened due to the never ending enthusiasm of Indonesians over Japanese styled dishes, as well as the fact that Japanese restaurants are often considered as the most favorable place to loosen up after a long day at work. This is the case where a Sukiyaki or Steamboat restaurant like Onokabe comes into the picture. Not only famous with its affordable yet prime selections of beef and vegetables, Onokabe also offers its guests with varieties of different menus – ranging from Japanese, Korean, Chinese, American, even Italian! Claiming to be the ultimate ‘one stop dining spot’ in town, Onokabe will make sure that both adults and kids can have an equally fun dining experience on their restaurant.
