Best meal we had during our 3 day stay in Amsterdam. The food was great, portions were big for 2 (we ordered one of the set rice table menus) and service was friendly and quick. If I had any complaint it would be that the meal was a bit on the pricey side. Definitely recommend for those who love Indonesian... More

Dined here on our last night in Amsterdam. Despite all the different reviews, decided to try it anyway. Food was really nice and staff were wonderful!

We walked past this restaurant whilst visiting the floating flower market and liked what we saw - stylish white rectangular plates and nicely presented food. We therefore decided to return to eat that evening - we had no reservation and managed to get the last table. Service was thorough and we had selected one of the set menus, to try... More

It was our mission to have a rice table experience whilst in Amsterdam and this restaurant has a great location in the Flower Market area. Friendly staff, tasty food; we really liked the beef satay and a coconut chicken curry. The chicken satay had a different sauce to the beef one and has weird squidgy texture which is the only...

ordered the Rijstaffel and were very disappointed. Used to eating spicy foods in London and this meal didn't spur our taste buds at all. Two meat dishes were indistinguishable and you couldn't tell the difference between chicken and Tofu! Pleasant staff moved us from back room where it was so dark we couldn't rad the menu but this was a... More

We visited for dinner on a Saturday night and very much enjoyed the Indonesian "rijstaffel" taster menu which had a great range of flavours. Service was ok though not especially attentive and the only real complaint was the lighting - it was so murky and dark, that sadly, you don't get to "feast your eyes" before you eat. That said,...

Great Rijstaffel, tried to different ones, since the very serviceminded waiter asked about our likings and how tolerant we were for spicy food! Nice wines and beer and very affordably prices. Lots of guests but still time to treat every table quickly and polite.

We had problems deciding what to order but the "rice tables" take care of that and work out good value for a lot of food! Everything was very tasty, if a little spicy and the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly.

We were so looking forward to this. We are a couple in our 30s who live in London so we are generally spoilt with restaurants but we heard that the Indonesian food in Amsterdam is great...aaaand.. the food at Sampurna was pretty much inedible. The sauces were sickly and gloopy, the peanut sauce made me feel sick, meat was dry... More

It seems most good Indonesian restaurants are closed for lunch during the week. This one is not only open and centrally located by the flower market but also quite good with great service.
