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.

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!
