We come to this restaurant with family of 8 members. The seafood taste, boiled shrips, softshell crabs, fried prawns and squid were all good. The ambience was a bit hot maybe as it was too crowded.

It doesn't look much from the outside, nor from the inside. But apparently hugely popular in the area. Because we came for our meal at the tail end of the dinner crowd, we were directed to the dining area upstairs, which is rather claustrophobic. There is a muslim prayer room upstairs and restroom as well. We ordered crabs (which is... More

by far , sarkep ( sarang kepiting ) is the best place for us to eat crabs. the minus point - its very hot and long queue at weekend and it's a bit far from central jakarta. not recommended bringing your baby/children

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.
