There are LOTS of Indonesian restaurants in Amsterdam, so it's hard to choose. We identified this one through a combination of location and excellent TripAdvisor reviews. It didn't disappoint. Small family restaurant. Fresh, authentic, delicious food. Charming service. Unpretentious and good for our two families with four teenagers in tow. Highly recommended! Will go back next time in Amsterdam.

Great Indonesian food, took the tasting menu which gives a taste of around 10 different delicious dishes from the Indonesian kitchen (you can pick between a vegetarian or non vegetarian menus) together with the red house wine we had great time. The restaurant was full but yet the service was quick with a smile and with explanation on all dishes.... More

I have had Indonesian Food only three times, but this time was definitely the best. The food was plentiful and delicious, and the amazing service was the best part. There's not much else to say.

This restaurant was an excellent experience for myself and my girlfriend! We had never had Indonesian food before and were told that Amsterdam has excellent Indonesian food, so we decided to give it a try. We picked this place based on the reviews on tripadvisor and it paid off. Kartika has amazing food and amazing staff. The staff is very... More

We stumbled upon this little restaurant in the Vondelpark neighborhood where we were staying. We were keen to try Indonesian food while in Amsterdam, and since the prices looked reasonable, we thought we'd give this one a go. As things would have it, all the tables had reserved signs, but the gentleman said if he could have the table free... More

Best to make reservations. I didn't pick up in the other reviews that this is a small place, about 50 seats. We didn't have reservations and the host/waiter says "Well, I don't know, I'll see what we can do." There was a table finishing up, so we were able to get seats. While we were eating another cople came in... More

I arrived from Australia by plane a few hours ago and wondered down the highstreet near my hotel and came across Kartiki. I wasn't out looking for one of the best meals of my life or anything, but that is what I got. I ordered a sampling dish (recommended to me by the staff) with rice in the centre and... More

Kartika is a great Indonesian restaurant a bit outside Amsterdam city center. The service is a kind of Indo family atmosphere, the service waiters are the typical Indonesian super friendly style. The taste of the food is fantastic Recommended for a great meal The restaurant is pretty small, make sure you have reservations
