As a regular customer for years I consider it a privilege to review Batavia. The atmosphere is traditional Indonesian and Julia is a perfect hostess. During weekends they serve an excellent buffet dinner. My favourite dish however is the sateh dinner (different kinds of sateh). Especially the Makassar sateh is fingerlicking good!!! Also take away is possible.

I've never had Indonesian food before so I have no way of comparison, but ultimately the food was delicious, tasty, with the right amount of spice (and the portions were generous). Not being able to read dutch we went for a mixed grill platter overflowing with little pieces of meat (various animals) on skewers, ribs, some veggies and a fried... More

This might be my new favorite spot in Arnhem! They have a €16.90 3-course javanese buffet deal that will blow your mind. This traditional Indonesian kitchen has it going. For me, the highlight of the course was the appetizer. First of all, their Soto Ayam, which is an Indonesian yellow spicy chicken soup, tastes amazing. That alone sets great yums... More

This was my favorit restaurant in Arnhem for a long time. But our last visit was more than disappointing. We had a reservation done for a table for 4. We were waiting over 1 hour till our table was ready. The “over” happy lady serving us mentioned every 2 seconds to stay calm. Its hard to stay calm after an... More

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.
