Disappointing, everything was very sweet and the chicken meat was tasteless. Good service, but expensive

The Good - Food is authentic. Quite good. The Bad - Servings are small. Expensive. The Ugly - Beware of the rude curly haired Asian waitress. There are far better, cheaper places to eat with kinder, more helpful servers in Amsterdam! Sampoor service. Never again! .

This is a busy, busy restaurant, so be sure to book, particularly at weekends. We wanted to have the Celebes Ristaffel, so didn't eat anything from 11am onwards! this was a wise move. The very cheerful and efficient waitress was very particular about the cleanliness of our glasses and twice went to get a clean one before pouring the wine.... More

We were lucky to get a table for two. You have to book for this place. Very helpful staff helping you with the menu. We did not want to eat a lot. We had satay for 2 and then an Indonesian dish between us! Very tasty.

The dishes were well flavored and aromatic and the staff are friendly. Overall it's smart, small and friendly. It's central, right on the flower market on the Singel canal.

We had a great dinner: several menus shared in the table from soft, to mild or super spicy. The flavours, colours and ingredients were a great experience. Nice waiters and gifted chef. Highly recommended. We were invited to the dinner, but I remembered to be reasonably priced for Amsterdam. Enjoy your meal!

Having flown over to Amsterdam especially to eat an Indonesian meal, we chose this restaurant for lunch based on TA reviews and location. We were able to sit outside and immediately ordered a rijsttafel. This caused the waiter to recoil in surprise, but after a few minutes persuasion convinced him that we knew what we wanted, so he relented and... More

Close to the flower market, small and cosy place, friendly personnel, good service and above all very good food at reasonable price. I definitely return to this place! As it is not a big place, it is recommendable to book in advance.

After a hiccup with an online booking sight for a previous evening, I called the restaurant directly and made reservations. We were greeted at the door and apologies were given for the mistake with the online booking tool. We were sat at the table requested and enjoyed a fantastic meal. We chose to order the Batara rijsttafel. A wonderful mix... More

I never expected to find such a gem in a touristy area, but I saw the Trip Advisor sign and decided to try out this restaurant. The service was fast and friendly, with excellent recommendations. The food was incredible. The fried cod was flaky and melt-in-your-mouth!
