Based on the high ratings Kartika had received on TripAdvisor, my wife and I decided to finish our day-long museum tour there. Although friendly, the staff was quite rigid: I ordered the Brahma menu and wanted to have fried rice (nasi goreng) instead of white rice. Rather than just adding a couple of Euros to the bill, I was told... More

We were pushed into eating a set menu, the service was rushed and they couldn't get us out fast enough, as there was a queue of people outside waiting. Having said that some of the dishes were nice others were average.

This was recommended by a friend who was a serious devotee of Indonesian food. Another fancier place was recommended by my brother, but we went here and it was fabulous. The price was better as well. We had a delicious meal and good beer.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant for its authentic cooking. It is a very small neighborhood restaurant. Reservations are a must. The service was excellent. We had the rjistafel, and it was delicious. All the very many dishes are served on a heated platform in the center of the table. Plan on dining for an hour and a half, there is... More

From the reviews, I expected us to be in for a real treat. It wasn't that wonderful, and I am wondering just what people are eating that deserves the high ratings this place gets. Now, the service is okay. The place is relatively clean, and the prices aren't astronomical for what is served. However, the food is really ho-hum. Nothing... More

I had heard so much about Indonesian food, especially rice table, from everyone and everywhere including Rick Steves' Amsterdam DVD, before going into this restaurant. The place was so crowded and busy that I had to stop by one night before just to make a reservation. It was extremely conveniently located right across from our hotel and also had 4.6... More

We were four guys who thought Indonesian food seemed interesting. And what a meal. Tasty and so many different flavors. And I have never been served by a more polite and sweet waiter. Very nice place. Highly recommended.
