Incredible Experience

Was recommended this place by a friend, and she actually undersold it. The food was incredible, and the service was truly one of a kind. The server gave us food on the house because the reservation time was an hour later than my original request. He was so kind to us the entire night, and it really... read more

I am in town for business and went here last nice based on other reviews from Trip Advisor. I was not disappointed. The food was fantastic. I had a sampler of four or five different things based on a recommendation from the server. The only thing better than the food was the server. They were busy but he was very... More

When we go to Amsterdam we usually go to an Indonesia restaurant and this time we thought we would try a different restaurant to our usual. It is a small restaurant so I would recommend booking, we booked on the Friday night for a table on the Saturday night and when we got there they were full. The Mahabarata rijstafel... More

I would recommend this restaurant. The rijstafel was just delicious. The service could not have been nicer. We went on a Monday night and the place was full: you need to book a table.

Really wanted to try a Rijstafel whilst in Amsterdam and booked this based on previous reviews. Not disappointed! I can highly recommend this restaurant for many reasons. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived until we left. Recommend booking though (we phoned in advance from the UK - they spoke perfect English!). We were group...

Away from the centre of town and a very ordinary appearance from the outside. If I hadn't read reviews I might have passed by. We got there early and, after some discussion, tried one of the set menus as it had been some time since we had eaten Indonesian food. A great range of flavours with at least 10 small... More

We visited Amsterdam for my husbands 50th birthday and chose this place for our first taste of Indonesian cuisine, we tried the Ramayana Rijsttafel, we made a reservation in advance as this place was near to our hotel so did not want to miss out, the food was lovely, especially liked the egg dish however all the dishes were tasty...
