“too crowded , not authentic.”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

i have to wait for more than half an hour just for my drinks to come, it's unacceptable ! and while we were waiting on the waiting list , they almost give the empty seat to the group waiting after us, and i complained, they said sorry , and we get the sit, but if i don't complain , when will we get our seat ???? and to be honest i tried more authentic manado food better than this place.

“Sarang Oci, Manado restaurant in JAKARTA... hot n spicy foods.”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Bingooooo..., if you ever tried Manado culinary, like them..miss them? so, when you are in JAKARTA I strongly suggest come to this place...it located in west JAKARTA, the close well known spot could RCTI television, Kebun jeruk tol gate, or coming from Simprug Permata hijau... no doubt if you will find "quiet a que" that finally need more than half an hour to get seats.. but all will be paid in return... THe dishes, mostly are direct cooking from fresh raw, absolutetly not "ready to serve"...except for some desserts... please mention the level of hot if you dont feel like eating "sweaty hotty" one... Soup and grilled fish, vegie, Tuna fried rice, the famous fresh sambal "dabu dabu"...burn your tongue, and come back .... !!! Desert? "Klappert tart" the famous coconut cake is the best... don't forget to grab some Panada (Smoked fish cake) home....

“Bakwan Jagung Top”
Reviewed 15 December 2013 via mobile

Had been here for a couple of times with my family, one thing for sure i love their Bakwan Jagung and klapertaart. A little tips, if you come at lunch time you'll be trouble finding parking space and also table to dine in. This is one of the best Manado Restaurant in Jakarta.

“Newest Favourite Restaurant for Manado Food”
Reviewed 12 December 2012

Some of my friends have forced me to try this restaurant and finally i did it on last November.
Voila, i instantly fell in love with their "Redbean ice". The rest of the choosen food were amazing too (sauted papaya leaves, roasted spanish mackarel, fried squid, chicken woku blanga , rayfish with rica sauce, fried cakalang fish, etc ). But my number 1 "you must try" is always the corn croquette (perkedel jagung) and it tasted awesome! so crispy and delicious :D

“A Jakarta Gem”
Reviewed 11 October 2012

Over the years, I have to say the Sarang Oci is the best restaurant for local food i have even been to in Jakarta. Not exactly local - rather, the restaurant specialises in cuisine from Manado, Sulawesi island.

We were there with family recently and impressed with the quality (and quantity) of tasty dishes, especially the Manado-style grilled fish. I can't remember the name but similar to makeral.

Good value, although the prices are a little higher than the regular local restaurants, but given the quality of the food, worth every penny We paid around $30 for 4 adults including soft drinks. By the way, none of the 5* hotels/restaurants I know can cook up anything approaching Sarang Oci.

The restaurant itself is not plush, but clean, spacious and comfortably cool - a welcome break from the heat and dust of the nearby Jakarta traffic chaos.

Highly recommended - not easy to get to, but simply jump into a taxi, relax and look forward to a sumptious meal.
