This is the place to go for better steak. And when I say better I mean compared to the lately shrooming 'affordable flashy' kind of 'holy' steak in Jakarta. Why?
While the rest of the market are busy showering BBQ / Blackpepper / Mushrooom sauces on their meat, this place recognize no such thing called sauce. They go for seasoning instead. A few of the stood out ones for me was the Lemon Herbs Pt. II and their Beerloin. Marinated in beer for a period of time, it add tenderness to the meat and an extra unique flavor.
2. Quality Ingredients
I don't question whether those who claimed their steak as wagyu are really serving high grade wagyu, but what I know is Super Steak know their meat. 200 grams of goodness. It let the meat speak for itself without messing it around with sauces.
Chances are Om Mashud, the owner of the place will come around and say hi to you and begin telling his stories and listen to your stories as well. A very interesting person to talk to being an ex-photographer and reporter himself. On his best mood, he'll ask you to take a photo with him and the next thing you know it will end up in the wall of fame.
I'm a fan already even only after one visit. Been coming back for home-style steak. It's a bit on the pricey end at 150-200k, but its worth it.

SUPER STEAK. They have two branches right now, with the main outlet located in Jl. Dempo, Kebayoran and has quite a homey & laid-back ambience, because this gem is literally hidden inside a housing complex with security-guarded portal. The other branch is much easier to find, in Urban Kitchen Senayan City (although there is some slight price difference). I have tried both outlets, and I’d have to say that the main branch in Jl. Dempo gives a more personal experience.
Here you won't find any regular, ordinary sauces such as BBQ, mushroom, etc. Here, it's all about the MEAT. Needless to say, their steak do not need any sauce no more. The high quality ingredients, combined with the right cooking techniques and unique flavor selection is all that is, everything just speaks out for themselves. And I like my steak just like that.
If you’re the type to avoid much bloated creamy sauce, the ‘overwhelmingly wet’ steak dressing, and are just aiming for simplicity and tastier high quality steak, then you should definitely give SUPER STEAK a try. This is an Australian outback’s steak style, done from a humble home-eatery concept.
Price-wise, it's actually a bit pricey. Prepare around 150-200k per person.
Tip: if you eat at Dempo outlet, you can ask for 'Classic Butter Garlic', it's said to be a hidden menu. There's also some other 'secret menu' so you'll have to go there and ask yourself ;)
