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

Food quality and taste were much better in the old days. Now it is just an average restaurant and you can get the same quality of food just about anywhere else, perhaps for lower prices...and better service! I was recently at this restaurant's branch on Jl Suryo on a Sunday afternoon. So many items on the menu were not available... More

Before you enter the restaurant, you are greeted by a lovely woman and multiple fish tanks and trays. From here, you pick out your dinner. Want a crab...here they are. Want a super large tiger prawn..here it is. Live seafood is there for the picking and will be served to you in short order. The black pepper crab was my... More
