Authentic Indonesian Flavours

Visited this restaurant with a group of 5 and having lived 10 years in Indonesia,I was hoping for authentic flavours. They did not let me down. Obviously the spicy dishes were not as spicy as they should be, but i expect that when catering to the general European taste that would be unavoidable... read more

It's Saturday night and we left our riverboat cruise in Sneek, Friesland, northern Netherlands, in search of either a pancake house or an Indonesian restaurant with a rijstaffel. The locals said there wasn't a pannekoeken but there was an Indonesian called Klein Java. One couple were walking that way and escorted us. I arrived via a small mobility scooter at... More

Judging from all the good reviews we visited Klein Java with 3 people. We chose the rice table Bandung, with meat and 3 types of Satay. It took a while before the dishes came. As a starter were given a small Indian loempia: delicious to taste. On the menu is indicated that you should be in a hurry at Klein... More

Review: Looking fine at the frond-view, the interior and restaurant setting is a bit basic and 'easy-done'. Staff is friendly but not always very attentive. Food is taste and divers if you order one of the menu/arrangements. The different sorts & tasts of dishes are served on a warmer. Product-quality is rather average. Housewines are ok. Negatives: Interior/atmosfeer is not... More

Delicious, delicately flavoured dishes. Friendly staff. Not pricy. The culinary highlight of our visit to Friesland.

We came with six people without reservation and they made it possible that we can sit together. The recommendation was a rice platter which we ordered. They brought 12 different dishes with lamb, chicken, fish and vegetarian. Beside this salad, two different kind of rice and before a yummy starter. Everyone of us had enough and they even asked to...
