This restaurant in the flower market is ideal to try Indonesian food. I had a couple of very good vegetarian dished and my wife had a mixed plate of various things from the menu. All the food was good with the tofu in Balinese chilli sauce being the highlight. A busy place, but good friendly service and a good price.... More

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this delightful restaurant to visitors to the Flower Market site in Central Amsterdam. Excellent, tasty food served by the most beautiful waitress in Amsterdam.

We had 2 Rijsttafel Dinner while we were in Amsterdam (Sampurna and Indrapura), and I'd like to give higher rating to Sampurna, however the food in Indrapura is better (in terms of taste and execution). Sampurna is quite a small restaurant and it is quite cramped. It is located in a very touristy area and we found it by chance... More

Try the sampler plate for 2 if you've never been here - comes with rice and samples of about 6 of their specialties. Wonderful flavors!

I was here many years before and it slipped my mind, until we walked in the street around the corner at dinner time that I remember this place. Actually we went in for a quick dinner, but we ended up spending more time and having more food that we planned. This is authentic Indonesian food. Indonesian dishes are one of... More

We arrived about half an hour late for our reservation, and it took about 15 minutes for them to finally seat us at a table as the restaurant was quite packed. We ordered the rijstafel that costs €28.50 per pax, and it was delicious!:)

The food was OK albeit somewhat overpriced. However the evening was spoiled by the logistics. Although I made reservation the day before, we had to wait for about 20 minutes upon arrival. Obviously they accept more reservations than they can handle. After the wait, we were given a table in the back room. It was small, with low ceiling, no... More

This delightful little restaurant is located in the Singel (the flower market of Amsterdam). Service is wonderful, the food is delicious and people watching (when eating outside) just adds to the atmosphere. Rijstaffel is a must when visiting Amsterdam, but just ensure that this will be you only meal of the day.
