This wa a great experience, definite recommendation. The main waiter is a bit weird but nice. The food is great and plenty. On my app of trip advisor the restaurant is on the wrong side of the street though.

Kartika provides consummate hosts in a delightful ambience. It does not stop there. We chose the rijstafel Ramayama and at eighteen euros fifty per person it was an incredible bargain. Most other Indonesian restaurants are more like thirty euros per head for an equivalent offering. The flavours were delicious and redolent of a visit to Jakarta, but with a little... More

After an evening strolling through the nearby Vondelpark, Kartika was a welcome sight! The menu by the door doesn't make it explicitly clear, but yes, you do get all of the dishes on those €pp set menus (see photo). There is an additional a la carte menu, but it would be a waste not to take up the opportunity to... More

Kartika, on Overtoom near NH Amsterdam Centre, has an outstanding (and considering the prices at other Indonesian places) excellent value rijsttafel (18.50 E each). The Emptynesters enjoyed 10 dishes with some great sticky rice. The redang was excellent and the sate's made us want more. Tip - take the tram away from the center and try Kartika. P.S. the first...

We arrived without a reservation but fortunately only waited a few minutes. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Possibly the most polite staff I have ever encountered in a restaurant. We chose a rice table called the Ramayana which was a selection of about a dozen dishes. Each dish was carefully explained. The male was wonderful. Each dish was... More

Didn't think we'd manage to finish the huge rijstaffel, but it was so good that we found room. Good service too.
