Fantastic food... we can highly recommend the set meals. A set meal for two gave us no less than twelve individual dishes, that all perfectly complimented each other. A fantastic way to get a good sample of delicious Indonesian cuisine. We ended up coming here twice over our long weekend!

After reading the reviews for Kartika, we had to give it a try. We didn't make a reservation, but the staff said they should have a table in around 10-15 mins. We were given water and crackers/dips whilst we waited. The satay really is excellent. Once seated, we were given the run-down of the menu, although we knew what we... More

We visited Kartika after initially looking for an Indian restaurant. (It is Indonesian.) We were very pleased with the choice. We had the Ramayana tasting, small plates menu as well as a soup and found it to be just the right amount of food. Most dishes were absolutely delicious, and we would happily visit again to eat our favorites. Service... More

Once we cleared up our server's confusion about our order, we had a good late-night dinner here. There is a good range of vegetarian choices for those inclined, and the lovely owners didn't chase us out even though they clearly were closing up for the night.

Yummy birthday dinner. Small servings of 18 different foods. A real treat and only 18 Euro! A real fun dining experience.

The friendly staff (sometimes a bit too humble) serves traditional food. You get the feeling that they cook just for you however you can see that the restaurant is fully booked all the time (I suggest to make a reservation). We had about 15 different dishes for 27 euro per person, which is not expensive. There are combinations of dishes... More

Amsterdam is not devoid of Indonesian restaurants, but most of them serve simple, not-too-fresh, and rather salty food. Although I am not too fond of the Indonesian cuisine given the aforementioned fact, I gave Kartika a try on a rainy Saturday evening. The Ramayana Indonesian rice table comprised of a colourful variety of dishes and bites. Fairly flavoured (without too... More

We were determined to have a good Indonesian meal in Amsterdam since that was one of the Amsterdam experiences a lot of tour guides recommend. We did not especially plan to go to Kartika, but somehow stumbled upon it while walking back from the Van Gogh museum back to our hotel by the Dam Square. To be precise the restaurant... More

This was great for a large group of people. We ordered an assortment of Indonesian dishes so everyone gets a bit of everything. It was really good from the veggie dishes to the meat, chicken and seafood dishes. Service was also very friendly

We ordered the Ramayana dinner (18.50€ each) which had 12 different dishes, starting with chips and dip (with a delicious peanut, chile, red onion and soy sauce dip), then 10 vegetable or meat dishes and finally, fried banana. All the dishes were tasty, but our favorite was the sauce served with the hard boiled egg. It was well worth the... More
