You know the food is good when elder Indonesians walk in for a meal. This is truly Tempo Doeloe. The Sate Kambing (goat) is heaven. When in Arnhem go to Batavia and indulge to lose yourself in an excellent genuine Indisch experience.

Among the four Indonesian restaurants in Arnhem, Batavia is the oldest, biggest and serve the most authentic Indonesian cuisines. The decor of this restaurant doesn't even change much since they opened. And what a decor! It is unmistakably Indonesian. No wonder they have the biggest loyal customers.

I have been to Batavia many times already and I would go back without a doubt. Food is good, portions are big and we are always warmly welcomed. Try one of the Rijstafels (kinda dim sum) to have a taste of everything. I really like the "basic" Rijstafel Indonesia which will give you a great overview of their know-how. Be... More

We ordered a meal that is served in ample dishes, 3 different flavors of meat. Very yammy and satisfying. Got a taste of 8 different kind of dishes with the price of one. Interesting new experience for people who are looking for a different experience.

If you are to be in Arnhem and don't know what to eat or where to go, don't hesitate to go there you won't be disappointed. The service is great with people really giving you some good advice and taking care of you. Food is good and seems to stick to Indonesian tastes, which is quite important!

I went there as a solo business traveler based on the critics of TripAdvisor. The welcoming was very warm from the waiter. I didn't know the plates so I asked for suggestions in order to discover the Indonesian cuisine. I was offered the menu that includes appetizers and many small dishes as main plates, which was delicious. To conclude, very... More

What a joyful experience our dinner at the Batavia was! We cannot recommend this restaurant warmly enough. Not quite sure how busy the restaurant would be during the Easter holiday we booked our table online on their website (easy). The waitress, or I should rather use the expression hostess, greeted us warmly, led us to a beautifully laid table and... More

Holland has a tradition with Indonesian food, for Indonesia has been a Dutch colony for many years. There are many Chinese restaurants who also serve Indonesian meals, but it is not the real Indofood we like up here. This restaurant is very good, try the Saté menu. it is outstanding.
