This crab joint is the among the pioneer crab joint in Balikpapan. It's among the top joint, along with kepiting Dandito. Slightly more expensive, but Bigger Crab! The sweet and sour is also relatively nice, for those enjoys not so sweet delicacy. Try the blackpepper one for spicy taste. The choice is urs, it's equally delish!

You should try this resto. The best food is fried crabs. Can not describe with any word. For asam manis crab is too sweet like you drink ice tea with lots of sugar...dont order if you dont like sweet food. Try the local orange juice.....will complete your day..you can take away to your home town with min 1 day order... More

probably the restaurant over stocking the crab, and the customers are not as crowded as expected, so the crab was simply put in the shelf/fish tank a bit too long, therefore the meat is not solid/firm

The best menu is kepiting goreng kering and kepiting lada hitam. The famous sauce crab (kepiting saos special kenari) is ok for me, but too sweet and strange for my friends. However the deep fried one and the black pepper one are always receiving good comments. They are famous for the freshness of the material, not the seasonings. The crabs... More

‎A food joint that worth your visit while you're in Balikpapan.  Serving crabs as the main menu ingredients, and not just crabs but you can choose from meat-packed male crabs or eggs filled female crabs or both of course. It offers a series of souce choice and my favorites are sweet-and-sour, black pepper, and spicy padang souce - in no... More
