Pricy, a bit tatty, but good food

It's surprisingly hard finding really good quality Indonesian food in Amsterdam. This is probably as good as it gets. The restaurant is small and looks better by night. By day it feels a bit grubby and tatty. It's extremely popular though, so make a reservation. Service is middling. The food... read more

Sampurna was recommended by a Dutch friend, and it was as good as advertised. It's in the Flowermarket area.

Remembering great experiences with Indonesian Restaurants in Amsterdam I picked this one because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor. We ordered the seven dish meal which is the most expensive combo on the menu. The goat and chicken skewers were delicious and were the other three items. However when it came to the beef and chicken plates, they were overdone... More

For people who love Indonesian food, here is a restaurant that meets the expectation at a reasonable price in a fabulous location. There is lots of choice and variety of spices. The staff are extremely attentive and friendly.

This restaurant, across the "street" from the Flower markets, was a five minute walk from our hotel. It is much smaller than its neighborhood rival, but the food was just as good. The wait staff were very friendly. We would recommend it to anyone (staying in the central city) who does not want to take the longer trip out to... More

We went to Sampurna for rijstaffel on our last night in Amsterdam. There are a number of different choices (types). We chose the middle of the road one, price wise and size wise. It was still a lot of food. There were a number of small dishes. Many were spicy hot. This was not my favourite meal. I thought the... More

An unassuming restaurant that sits off a canal in a nice neighborhood. We came on our first night in town, both having been to Amsterdam many times not having had Rijstafell in a long time. They offer a number of set menus of Rijstafell. We had the third one down in price €29 per person because it looked more interesting... More

We did walk in to restaurant without a reservation. We were seated promptly. From there everything went downhill. All the service staff seemed to be in chaos. Someone, we flagged down took our drink and food order. The drinks and appetizers did arrive fairly quickly. It seemed to be the start of a good meal. The burners were placed on... More

We tried this Indonesian restaurant in Amsterdam. Had the Rijsttfel taster menu which consisted of many small dishes. We decided upon the Batara Rijsttfel which consisted of chicken, shrimp , beef, veg. & steamed rice cooked in a variety of sauces predominantly peanut, coconut & lemongrass with chilli. The flavors were wonderful, each dish had its own specific taste, extremely... More
