Delicious Adventurous Meal (for us!) in Amsterdam

We wanted to try Indonesian Food in Amsterdam and our hotel recommenced Sampurna. Our group of four shared 3 rice table set menus. Delicious food - some spicy, some not. Helpful wait staff. Great experience!

Made reservations ahead of time. Food was fresh and very tasty. There are multiple choices of rijstaffel - vegetable, meat, seafood, etc... Plenty of food for both of us. Mildly spicy with flavors of coconut, peanut, ginger, and curries.

A very nice restaurant, in a good, central location. I booked on a Friday night about an hour before going and found that I was able to find a table and enjoy a pleasant evening trying a wide range of Indonesian food. I am not an expert on this type of cuisine, so I can only say that all the... More

The food in this restaurant was very good. The waiter warned us/me before we officially ordered since what I wanted to pick was very hot and I don't like it, so it was nice of him. However, it was kind of hard after we got our food to be heard. We had half our dishes, no fork, and had difficulties... More

Amsterdam is an amazing city...we love it so much..the whole trip was fun and enjoyable.. Until after we had dinner in this restaurant. A dirty spot you don't want in any holidays..Please avoid unless you want it to spoil your vacation. The service here is so poor. Coming from South East Asia, we are known to have really good hospitality... More

Food was not bad but service was really bad! We asked for the sambal sauce from 3 waiters and he finally gave it to us after we almost finish our food...

I'd eaten here while travelling with my Boss a few years ago. He ordered a group of us a "Rice Table" which is a bit of everything (quite a lot of everything really) and it was excellent. I'm pleased to say it is still great. Last week I took my mother. She is not greatly adventurous when it comes to... More

While in Amsterdam, everyone should experience Rijstaffel. Indonesia was a Dutch Colony and the Indonesians bring their traditional of Rijstaffel to this country. Made up of about 15 dishes brought to your table and kept warm on a special warming plate while you try them. This is an affordable and interesting place to try it. We liked about 3/4 of... More

Sampurna came highly recommended by our hotelier but our experience left us dispointed. Whilst our meal was well presented, the actual food had been so adjusted to western taste it was left bland and lacked the kick of the real thing. Service was smiley but lacked efficiency. Our table to the rear of the restaurant was noisy and badly ventilated.... More

Did not expect to get 100% Indonesian taste...but the food were pretty close. If sambal was on the menu would had been close to perfection. Nice ambience, nice service (pretty quick).
