Good selection of meat, vegetable, rice and other sauces and accompaniments. Staff were all very friendly and eager to ensure we had a good time. Meal was ended with complimentary tea or coffee. We were able to... More

As a first experience of Indonesian cuisine we enjoyed our meal. We chose one of their 'starter menus' and were not disappointed and left the restaurant very full and satisfied . The service was excellent- friendly and helpful and the teas or Coffees 'on the house' at the end was a good touch.

This restaurant is conveniently located in the city center. I took my girl on a date here and it was fantastic! The atmosphere is very warm, cozy and comfortable. The food was exquisite and the staff really make you feel at home. This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Arnhem, and they will make you love Indonesian food!

Went to Batavia with a work colleague one night. Neither of us had ever eaten Indonesia food, so had to get some guidance from the staff on what to eat. The staff were friendly and helpful and, what we think were the owners, came round all the tables, during the evening, to say hello and check we were ok. Both... More

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.
