Restaurant details
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Went to the restaurant on Jalan Raya Serpong on night of 23 March 2013 with my wife. The restaurant is one of our favorite, we have been regular customer since 2008. Ordered a package for three person (two medium size , chili sauce/saus padang male crabs, one medium size grilled fish bumbu rica-rica & one sauteed watercress/tumis kangkung) plus one order of blood cockle/kerang darah and two drinks.

While we were waiting for our order to arrive, we took advantage of the free flow crab soup/sup kepiting (we liked it!). We didn't have to wait long for our orders to arrive. First came the blood cockle/kerang darah. The cockle was of good size & fresh, and we liked the sauce (tasted fresh). Then came the rest. The crabs were fresh & medium size, and I liked the saus padang. For us the sauce was good & not too spicy. We'd like it even more if the cooks had thrown mix of eggs into the sauce (like they did it around two-three years ago). We also liked the grilled fish (the fish is called ikan ayam-ayam because the meat texture and taste like chicken), the fish & rica-rica sauce tasted just right. My wife liked the sauteed watercress a lot.

The atmosphere is okay, good for friends/family gathering. The restaurant has three seating spaces: one in air-conditioned room and two open-air style. The service is okay & quite fast. But the best thing is the bill: for our orders, the total was under IDR 150.000. We are very pleased with our experience and would recommend this restaurant for family/friends gathering.

Our tips:
- Come to the restaurant during weekends to get the free flow crabs soup/sup kepiting.
- Come early/ make reservation because the restaurant can be crowded.
- If you come to the Raya Serpong outlet, pick the open-air seatings (the air-con room is not cool enough & can be smoky from the food).
- Ask for the packaged menu/menu paket (they have packaged menu for 3/6/12 persons).

What we liked the best:
+ Good price!
+ Fresh seafood
+ Good tasting meals/dishes

What we liked the least:
- Air/con room not cool enough
