This open tropical themed restaurant has proven itself to be one of Balikpapan's great culinary stop. They serve various seafood and crabs as their speciality. You have to try their kepiting soka with blackpepper sauce, so tasty!

Came here with 5 of my friends and ordered 3 portion crab with 3 cooking styles. The first is black paper sauce. If you like spicy food, you must order this.

I had been living in Balikpapan for a year and had tasted similar restaurants. But none of them defeated Dandito! My personal favourite was Kepiting Soka. So tasty. If you ever came to Balikpapan, you should try Dandito.
