Overpriced and very slow service

We chose this restaurant after reading all the rave reviews. We wanted to try the rice table which was priced at €34.50 pp. The food took a long time to come. It was difficult to get attention from the staff, and we had to ask for things repeatedly. The food was very average, and the "tender... read more

Probably the best meal my wife and I had in our four nights in Amsterdam. Very well priced, good sized portions, and great service. Our server's name was Christine or Christina, cant remember. She was very friendly and helpful with her suggestions. We ate Sate skewers of chicken, beef, and goat. All 3 were cooked perfectly, not all chewy, which... More

We booked this restaurant for the rice table menu as had read good reviews. We reserved a table for the evening. We were given a table for 2 in the middle of a fairly narrow restaurant. Which would have been ok but the rice table dishes did not all fit on the table. We had to protect our food from... More

We were there for a dinner and though they have not many tables we were lucky to get one without a reservation. The service was very good - and the food was just like I've tasted it in Jakarta.

Our family went to experience the Indonesian food we came away with an average experience and our expectations were not fulfilled. The problem here appears to be shortage of front of house staff the serving staff two people are trying to do front of house as well as serve. We arrived with a reservation early at 1830 hrs and we... More

Diners that have never had an indonesian rice table would find this to be an ok experience. If you are more than two people, and you've had it before, you will notice that you get cheated. We were a group of 10 people. (Some dutch, and some that have lived in the netherlands for more than 8 years). Making it... More

Visiting during a windy winter time we needed something more-ish for our souls. A nice "rijsttafel" was the perfect dish for the evening. It is made for a minimum of 2, but you will need 3 if not 4 people to finish it all. After all these years of traveling it happens very rarely that I leave a table with... More

Sampurna is our favourite Indonesian restaurant when we are in Amsterdam. Good quality food, for reasonable price in a good setting..and service is good as well. This time we did not take the multi multi dish Indonesian "rijsttafel" but two smaller plate-like dishes which were also very tasty. White wine (bottle of chardonnay) was very good. Total bill €75..just perfect.

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!
