Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This restaurant is a must when you visit Balikpapan, the location near the airport that you can easily visit when you've arrived here. This restaurant provides pretty good facilities which are nothing to worry about that they have really big space to accommodate people. They...provide many kinds of seafood such as crab, shrimp, squid, and scallop starts from 261k you can get 1 portion of sauce crab with an optional sauce of your choice (black pepper, Padang sauce, oyster sauce, and sweet & sour sauce) since the crab is one of the famous seafood in Balikpapan. This restaurant also provides you another menu, chicken and also meat which will provide other options for you. Even though the place is a little bit far away from town, they will always be crowded. This is my absolute favorite seafood restaurant in Balikpapan, the food is always fantastic, and no matter what I order I am always delighted with the meal they served me!More

A restaurant that specialises in seafood and more specifically crab. Crab is available prepared in multiple different ways (black pepper, sweet/sour, etc). Large portions on the crab, less so on the veggies. No alcohol served here.

Super cheap with tasty flavor. The crab is not that big. They have garlic fried style crab which is quite good. The sweet & sour plus black-pepper style are also worth to try. The flavor not as strong as in some of my favorite restaurant...in Jakarta yet it’s good enough if you prefer mild taste. The price is super cheap compare with Jakarta. 1 portion of crab IDR 220K is good for 3-4 people. We ordered 8 crabs plus rice, kangkung, fried calamari and drinks! It’s only cost IDR 2.2 million to feed 19 people! It was satisfying and worth the price!More

Since I favor garlic on my food, I order fried crab with garlic taste. The taste is awesome, moreover pieces of garlic were found everywhere on the food. With the price around Rp 275rb, we will be served with 2 crabs. Order female crabs with...eggs since the eggs was very deliciousMore

been tried for several times to many of their dishes dine-in or take away, almost everything was and still good as expected. popular menus such as black paper crab, special sauce crab, and soft-shell crab would be satisfying for us to taste. prices are equally...fair by far. recommended place to eat with family and friendsMore

This is probably one of the oldest crab resto in Balikpapan. Ten years ago been here and is good. Now not really. We order 4 types of crab dishes: black paper, saus padang, sour sweet and steam. The only fresh dishes is the steam. The...rest they have cook it probably in the morning and only re-heated. Most of the crab meats are dried..really dry. Disappointing...should try other newly open crab resto.More
