I'd never realized before that there are so many Indonesian restaurants in Amsterdam. It was a tough choice where to go, but we chose Kartika for the good reviews and location. The place was pretty small and crowded so we were extremely lucky to get a table without reservation! Despite the fact that all tables were full and take out... More

We found this restaurant via the "near me now" function on the trip advisor app. I am so glad we did. We arrived 7pm on a Saturday night without a reservation and they squeezed us in. We had the set meal - Eur18 for a wide selection of dishes - some spicy some not so. Staff were lovely. Highly recommended.

I have RIjstaffel at every opportunity, with mixed results. This place came together with an absolutely amazing feast. I should have walked away leaving something left on the table. But it was so good this was impossible. It even worked out well with a vegetarian and non-vegetarian sharing. Everything was rich in flavor, service was quite good as well.

We were eager to try indonesian in Amsredam, particularly the 'rice table'. We were not disappointed. The meal was fantastic and just the right amount for 2. The staff were particularly attentive. A great place to try if you are staying in the museum quarter of Amsterdam.

The restaurant is quite small and they only have little places, but the service was great, they were very nice, served us drinks while we were waiting for our table and the food was just amazing!!! The peanut sauce was the best I've ever had in my whole live - just try it!

I've dined at Kartika on two recent trips to Amsterdam and have been thoroughly impressed both times. The service has been excellent both times - friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful The food has been wonderful both times. The Brahma is a nice dinner for two - a wide variety of small dishes that all taste great.

We ordered the sampler plate of ten items. Each was very unique and wonderful. This was our first experience with Indonesian food and we are glad to have found this small restaurant. The staff was very polite and provided great service. Highly recommend. Suggest getting a reservation.

This restaurant was popular with tourists and locals alike. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, clearly passionate about their food. I would recommend the tasting menu which comprises of 12 tiny dishes which give you a flavour of what Indonesian cooking is all about. The waiter was happy to provide explanations. All dishes were very flavoursome and the meat... More
