The staff is very friendly and polite. We wanted the large rice table and were discouraged by our waiter who told us to take the small one. I don´t know why he would want us to order something much cheaper? I did regret not insisting on the large rice table. The small one is limited and the food was very... More

Great value and great indonesian food. I had Soto Ayam, Rendang , Lumpia, Emping and Krupuk Udang - as well as Bintang beer:) The staff is indonesian and really polite. I had to wait for the food as they were busy, but the food was well worth the wait. This is now my goto restaurant in Europe for Indonesian food.... More

Another place we discovered through Trip Advisor. We knew we wanted to try a Rijsttrafel while in Amsterdam but which one? After reading through the reviews we settled on Kartika and are so glad we did. The servers were not only quick and efficient but glad to share information on all the dishes. We started with a fish soup that... More

We came to this restaurant very late on Monday night last when they were almost finished serving but they kept the kitchen open and fitted us in. Delicious food albeit, a tad to heavily reliant on peanut for my liking but we did not have much time to study the menu. I had mixed meat noodles and my daughter had... More

This place is fantastic -- the service is incredibly friendly, well-informed, prompt, and professional. The food! All fantastic. We have been to Indonesia (Java and Borneo) other Indonesian restaurants in Amsterdam, and can vouch for the quality and authenticity of the food here. The sambal was very spicy as warned! The prices are much, much better than at most any... More

We loved this restaurant so much we went back twice in our three night stay! The first night we had the taster menu and it was amazing, very good experience to be able to try it all. The service at this restaurant was probably the friendliest we have ever experienced. I can't say enough good about this place in general.... More
