I meant to post this a month ago but having problem uploading the photos, anyway.. I made the post eventually.
It's the first sushi restaurant I tried in Jakarta, my home country's capital, this Taiyo sushi located at Pluit Raya no. 17, North Jakarta. The restaurant itself has a cozy atmosphere and the location relatively free from traffic jam (if you live in Jakarta you know what I mean), and the service is good.
Their special menu is sushi roll and as the staff recommendation I tried the Taiyo special roll then I picked the the spicy mozarella roll and kakiage roll out of their 'special' roll dishes. Don't expect for a traditional Japanese cuisine here, as the dishes are more like fusion that have been adjusted to local taste, such as their Spicy mozarella roll, the names tells all you expected from the spicy garnish to the cheesy topping melts in your mouth, taste good though for someone who loves spicy food.

Every time I visit a sushi restaurant I never skipped inari and aburi salmon nigiri sushi, so I tried their aburi salmon with cheese from nigiri menu, and even I am a cheese lover still I prefer the simple aburi salmon as I love the pure salmon's taste.
Overall I love their fusion taste and would love to go back there if I get the chance.
