Was looking for food like we have in the Netherlands. They came close but not close enough. Big portions but they were out of kroepoek which was annoying.

Chippie Cafe is great! We've been going for years to see Mario and he never disappoints! We had a table for 13 people and everyone was raving about how delicious everything was. There is a little bit of a twist on classic dishes. Will come back again as always!

Excellent service and great selections! From sushi to Chinese dishes and very tasty. Ate here before and my friends thought it was best Chinese food they've ever had.

I'm a big fan of Indonesian food. We visited at lunchtime and the owner very graciously helped us select an assortment of dishes, but the food was disappointing in flavor, presentation, and price. The décor is unattractive Chinese. There were many Chinese and Japanese dishes on the menu. Maybe they were better.

Stopped by here a couple of times during our trip and always enjoyed the food. A little pricier than other places but well worth it when we were in Philipsburg at dinner time.

The food is very good, but pricey. You could easily pay $50 per person for lunch, which is not what you expect to pay in a restaurant that looks a little dated and with a slightly 'lazy' service. I would absolutely recommond any of the Dutch-Indo dishes; their most famous one being the babi pangang, which is roats pork shouler.... More
