Historically speaking, my dad knows this restaurant long time ago when they started the business as a street vendor. They stay in the same location, but, as the business grows, they move the business from roadside to modern building. Long story short, you'll never know when and how you;re gonna strike rich!
Anyway, if you're a crab enthusiast and in Jakarta, this is the place that you should know and go. The Kepiting Lada Hitam (Black Peppered Crabs) and Kepiting Saos Padang (Padang Red Sauced Crabs) are both excellent and tasty. They're both a bit spicy. Customers could ask for less spicy versions, but it'll take away the real flavor of the meals.
The restaurant now has several outlets, but I always go to the original place, the one in Green Ville (or Grenvil as it is known locally). The restaurant is two-story building. The tables in the upper level are more comfortable because the air condition system works better in closed space.
People usually go there in groups: with friends or with families. I think they should go there with the people they are comfortable with, because they will go dirty eating those delicious crabs with bare hands! They have to be in "I don't give a crab" mode!

- Very limited parking space.
- Lots of mosquitos.
- Very bad services. The waitresses is very slow.
- Very limited tissue paper. You have to ask it.
- Has to consider if you bring guests (especially foreigners).

In the beginning they start the business, the services etc is quite good. Much better than now.
Some waitresses using quite complicated hijab. We just worried their hijab is going to contaminated the food.
