The best price for seafood in the central of Jakarta

Located in front of Novotel Mangga Dua Square WTC Jl. Gunung Sahari, You can taste Kepiting Saos Padang ( Saos Padang Crab ) You will taste the best here. Try kangkung hot plate,too...Many foods present here. Try fried squid, so crispy! I Like it!

This is my favorite sea food restaurant when it comes to their specialty: crab! It's very big and if you like spicy sauce, their kepiting saos padang is so delicious! I don't even bother to drive across jakarta just to eat in this restaurant. Just keep in mind, due to wet season jl. Gunung sahari become inaccessible sometimes, so you... More

It's a very good place for you crab lovers. although they have a lot of seafood beside crab there, but most of the customer order their crab. if you eat there, choose "crab with eggs", and for the cooking, my favorite is "Kepiting Saus Padang". a little bit spicy, but VERY DELICIOUS. And I also recommend "KERANG HIJAU SAUS PADANG"... More

Considering the price, this could easily be the best crab in Jakarta. The place is nothing fancy. A standard hawker food place. But the crab is oh-so delicious. You'll forget about the crappy place, the traffic jams you must suffered to get here once you take a bite of their famous black-pepper crab.
