One to Remember

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.

Although the restaurant is expensive, it sometimes makes me to go back to taste the food once a while. I always remember the crab in Padang Style at Saung Grenvil Restaurant, which is very tasty as I have ever had in Jakarta.The end of the this year I invited a friend from London to taste the seafood there. 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

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...

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.
