Had a lovely dinner date with hubby. We love the small yet cozy rooftopbar which offer stunning night view. Definitely recommended place to hang out every now and then.

Overall 4,1 of 5 score review (5 the highest)

Food: 4,5 of 5
The Henshin Wagyu is a must try! It's a Kagoshima A5 and the tenderness and the flavour is just beautifully delicious.
I would have given 5 if only the shoft shell crab ticked the box.

Ambience: 4,5 of 5
Great night view, cozy and intimate rooftop bars and restaurant.

Service: 3,5 of 5
What can I say, it is very difficult to find a nice restaurant in Jakarta with a meticulous service. Overall friendly staffs, however for the fine dining place service just have to be top notch too.
- We were sitting and having drinks/ snacks in the lounge bar while waiting for our dining table to be ready. We had been informed twice that our table is ready (the first time we had replied we gonna finish our drinks and be there in 10mins), the second time the staff was kinda giving the look of hushing us.
- they don't have handbag case/ hook and they didn't offer unless i asked despite my handbag rather big to just put at my own chair. So they put an extra (regular bulky)chair for my handbag. Dear Henshin, if you can afford serving with @€40 deejo knife, please do provide a handbag case for your lady guest.
- my husband's main course were served 15 mins after mine served. They gave an edamame as apology gesture (appreciate for the gesture, but after having appetizers and main course, you dont really get delighted with an edamame offer- even when it's free)

Nice view. Great hospitality. The escort is Diyah, she was awesome in the service. She helps me a lot for surprising birthday dinner with my wife. Will be come here soon for next fusion indo-japan food...

Nb. Once of The romantic sky dining in Jakarta. Owh ya, for me some food did not palatable. They put their own taste. Taste of Japanese cuisine wich not palatable for me. Maybe if I am Japanese It will be the best food.

Dear Vandanu W,

Thank you for coming to Henshin! We're glad to hear that your surprise went well with Diyah's assistance. Also, we hear your comments on the food, which is indeed not the typical Japanese food because it's Nikkei cuisine. Next time, do let our associates know about your preference and we will be more than happy to recommend some dishes that you would enjoy.

We thank you again for your review, and we look forward to welcome you back to The Westin Jakarta.

Top Quality Japanese Restaurant situated on the top of Jakarta’s tallest building the 304-meter high Gama Tower. A wonderful but confusing array of dishes. We tried a number of different dishes and all were impressive. It would have helped if a member of staff had guided us, describing the dishes. A menu with photos would have helped the 4 novice dinners. The noise from the disco one floor below was a little distracting.
