Always good to visit when we are in singapore. They have many branches/outlets so go the nearest one to your hotel. Its very popular with the locals. The food quality is very good and seafood is fresh from their aquariums which can be found next to the restuarants.

We patron probably it's branch across Ibis hotel (couple of blocks behind Sarinah). Ordered crab in Padang sauce, garoua cooked with mango, two veggies and cockles. All together slightly over Rph400000 (inclusive of 10% tax). A bit pricey in my opinion but the taste was good, especially the crab. If I can recommend the food here, crab in Padang style... More

Came here for dinner with my family. The restaurant was quite busy, but not so full. There were some waiters/waitresses walking around. We sat there for almost 10 minutes but no one gave us the menu, so my dad decided to walk to the cashier and asked for a menu. We waited for a bit and no one coming around... More

My loved ones loves seafood, especially crab. She asked me to go to this restaurant, and I do enjoy this hot chili (saos padang style) crab. I ordered the small ones (approximately 7-8 ons) crab, and I do enjoy this crab, so tasty, crunchy, and yummy. I tried the other menus but nothing special. The crab is their specialities and... More

Even though this is one of the most famous Indonesian seafood restaurant in Jakarta, this is not the best at all. The food was just okay. The price is not worth the money. Better go somewhere else for much better seafood, crabs, and better pricing.

This place is awesome but you have to come early. I especially love their crab in padang sauce. Lots of sauce, fresh crab. The only problem is it was waaaay too spicy for me. I hope they maintain their food quality. Their service is quite slow, but maybe because they're usually are busy, just don't expect too much.

We dined here last night. The crab dishes are fab, although very messy (good job we like finger food!) We also had the prawn in kekap manis which was very tasty. A good quality eat and good introduction to indonesian seafood

The minimalist decor really allows the guest to focus on just the food. And the food is excellent. From fish, crab to vegetables, everything is fresh and perfectly cooked. With the entire table covered up in disposable vinyl, the restaurant practically dares the guest to make a mess, which is necessary to properly enjoy crab. Overall, a great experience and... More

Seafood is one of my favorite food & I had tried many restos in Jakarta before deciding this is one of a few best ones. This place always provide their customers with fresh stocks; whether you long for crab, prawn, squid, fish and also veggies. If you can't take spicy food, they have BBQ style which has always been my... More
