Full disclosure: we arrived without a reservation, hoping that we were early enough in the evening that a table would be available. And it was, but I realize we should have reserved a table! This is a smallish place with a real neighborhood restaurant feel. Beautifully decorated. We chose to share a rijstaffel from the menu, and the food was... More

This was recommended to us by our innkeepers - it was excellent! We were seated at a shared table, had a lovely dinner with a mother/daughter pair from San Francisco. Go for the whole meal with all the dishes, you won't be sorry.

We enjoyed a nice supper of an Indonesian sampling platter Ramayana with about 9 different small plates to sample with rice matched with Bintang beer. The tastes were good and the service exceptional. Would certainly recommend this restaurant to others, but judging on how busy it was, would likely recommend a reservation. We were able to get in without one,... More

We lucked into finding Kartika - we had tried a few other places nearby but they were all full for the evening. Using Trip Advisor we found this place. The staff was wonderfully accommodating and the food was great!

One thing that is recommended to do in Amsterdam is to try a Rice Table in an Indonesian restaurant. We were on our way back to our apartment from the Van Gogh museum and used the TripAdvisor app to see what was close by. Kartika seemed to be the one highest on the list that was near and open. We...

My husband and I enjoy Indonesian food a lot and have eaten at several places in Amsterdam. A friend recommended this restaurant and it was delicious! I had Bami Special and hubby had Nasi with an extra side dish of Chicken Sate. They also had the traditional shrimp crackers and a new one for me, a rice cracker, with three... More

Our dinner was delicious, speedy and staff pure joy! Would recommend as it is tasty, casual and inexpensive compared to other Indonesian establishments. Rice Dish, with everything included is the way to... More

Reserve before you come, dude. Otherwise it is difficult to them to give you an eating space, and it is possible that you can end up share the table with unknown. No AC inside so yeah it is hot in summer. The service and the food is good (even the taste is a little bit adapted). When we left the... More
