“Must try!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Kepiting Kenari is one of the must try crab restaurant in Balikpapan. The restaurant is located nearby airport.
They have Kenari Special Sauce which is more like sweet and sour sauce. If you like it to be more spicy like i do, Blackpepper Sauce is highly recommended. It's quite pricey though, a portion cost us around IDR 250-300k.
A lot of tourist come to this restaurant, so the crab is sold out very fast. Better to come earlier. Take away-cabin size-packaging is available, which is very handy for tourist to bring home the crab.

“no credit card accepted”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Price is expensive and no credit card is accepted here so you need to prepare cash money, food stocks is very limited so you have to booked before you come there.....
Crab in black pepper sauce is very recommended
