I like the way it's served, the food is really beautiful and the taste is never can be described well, so tasty. But I don't like the crowd, so crowded so the room looks not quite comfy, and a bit dirty...

Went saturday evening with 5 people.
Only 10 % occupied when we arrived at 6, and 20 % occupied when we left at 7.30.
That was a sign of what was to come.
Besides the lack of atmosfere, the main complain is the service.
Obviously this has never been a fine dining place.
But now the waiters were incompetent, un attentive, demotivated and, a rare thing for Indonesia, unfriendly.
The food was still as before, that is to say good, but more expensive.
But there are clearly management issues; a couple of examples; we asked if there was Bawal and were shown a frozen fish in a plastic, a waitress would know the price per kilo of crab she could weigh it but could not tell us what it would cost us , upstairs the personnel is glued to the tv screens and service is inexistent ; no way to get fork and spoon although the dinner has been served, no way to get a second beer even after three reminders. And obviously the bill was wrong also as they had forgotten all drinks.
On the way out from the first floor to the stairs we passed three waitresses watching tv, none would say goodbye or even give a smile. as I said, highly unusual for Indonesia.
A couple of years ago this was a place that was never empty. No, the empty space said it all.

when i was there, there's a few visitor there but the waitress seems not active to serve us. that happened when i ask to order some food, i should repeat many times about detail of food. instead of answer me w/ proper description, they just repeating my Q and point to the list menu. how silly seems like i'm the one who can't read the menu :)

but still, the menu taste good esp their crab and mantau (steamed chinese bread)

try also the egg salted prawn

Nice place to have seafood at reasonable price. There are 2 locations one close to taman angrek and the other in menteng. Both of them are good, fish are picked from the aquarium before they are cooked. Am not a big seafood lover but I do enjoy eating there. Nice crabs, and fish, I recomend to order their small breads to eat with black pepper crab really delicious.
