- Very limited parking space. - Lots of mosquitos. - Very bad services. The waitresses is very slow. - Very limited tissue paper. You have to ask it. - Has to consider if you bring guests (especially foreigners). In the beginning they start the business, the services etc is quite good. Much better than now. Some waitresses using quite complicated... More

I have been already in the other two Saung Grenvil Restaurant here in Kakarta. Fishes and crabs always really nice and very fresh. This is the first one and my opinion the best one. Black pepper crab always tastly and very nice. Service very fast and attentive.

Visited this restaurant with our local hosts. The food was excellent but you do need to go with the flow, get stuck in with your fingers and enjoy. You select your crabs from the tank and they are then cook to your requirements.

Here are the issues that we encountered dining at Saung Grenvil: 1. We ordered 7 dishes and only 3 were served correctly. 2. No proper ordering system. 3. We waited for 20-30 mins between dishes. Saung Grenvil was our favourite restaurant, but not anymore due to management and poor service quality.

I spend... More

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
