Incredible Indonesian restaurant

Let the waiter tell you what to order. Best to order the variety of many small dishes. Everything is delicious. Fast service, friendly. Very popular, hard to get seats.

Thanks TripAdvisor for this find. We had a great 'rice table' meal which was made of up lots of dishes to sample with a big bowl of rice. All were tasty, some spicy. Banana fritter was a good ending! the homemade satay sauce was extremely good. Easy to get to (tram stop "Overtoom" just around the corner).

We were in Amsterdam and heard there was good Indonesian Food (since Indonesia was a former colony) and we found this place. The price was very reasonable but the food was very, very average.

We ordered a Ramayana and got to enjoy multiple (around 10 or 12) small Indonesian dishes : beef, chicken, eggs, vegetables, rice... They were all very tasty. The staff took time to explain each of them. Conveniently located right next to a tramway stop, this place is popular with local and tourists.

Great food, fair prices, nice service. You need to try the rice table. The memory of all those flavours are gonna last forever ! The neighborhood is really nice too, near the beautiful Vondelpark.

Booking is an absolute must, as with many Amsterdam outlets, it was full for most of the time that we were there. Not really suitable for groups of over 5 or 6 people (essential to book in advance!). The selection is great, I recommend that you order from the sharing menus, as an incredible spread is laid out! We were... More

We came here on a busy evening without reservations and the staff was very friendly, they said they were fully booked but if we could eat in an hour we could have a table. This was no trouble as the service was very prompt. The food was amazing and surely not to disappoint someone looking for authentic Indonesian food. I... More

Food was lovely, staff were very friendly but a bit all over the place. Could do with more space or ergonomically layed out better. But for purposes of what they do, food was superb.

Couldn't get into our usual restaurant as shut for holidays so hotel recommended this one. Only small but the food was outstanding. Lovely warm, friendly place and staff very sweet. Had the taster meal between us to try everything and would thoroughly recommend it. Very popular and do 2 sittings an evening so book if you are going to visit
