Highly recommended by our cruise director, while it was good, not sure it was great. Right next to the flower market- view is not great in evening as the market boards up for the evening. Rice table - we got two diferent versions - vegetarian and also Barrarat - (low end of spicy). Food was very plentiful and interesting, was... More

Land on the terrace of Sampurna any time of afternon to restore your forces with a delicious Indonesian meal. While the endless stream of visitors to the flowermarket passes, you can Watch it all and have delicious sateh, lumpiahs, pangsit and one or two main courses to share. Friendly service, great prices. Sampurna's food is authentic, although I feel they... More

If you are hungry after a long day of walking and touring museums then head over to this place. Their rice plate, the Kuning Rijsttafel, is an abundance of food. You have the rice, then there is beef and chicken skewers, spicy tofu, spicy chicken, some kind of bean sprout tofu dish, a delish sliced beef, soybean mix that reminds... More

I really enjoyed my visit here - I had one of the rijstaffel set menus and it was just splendid - a great variety of simply delicious tasty dishes, very nicely presented. I gobbled it all up with great enthusiasm. Ambiance and service were also good. Highly recommended as far as I am concerned.

We loved this place! We ordered the rice table (with meat) for two, and it was outstanding. A lot of great dishes, prepared with real thought, and everything tasted great. We had a nice Pinot Grigio from the limited wine menu that matched up well to the spice and heat, and we had very nice, though at times distracted, service.... More

Located on a street which has multiple restaurants in a nice area. It was a weekday and we walked in without reservations and got a table. We decided to go with one of their set prefix menus and were not disappointed. It comes with a lot of food and is well laid out and served. All the dishes were flavorful... More

We have eaten Indonesian food on previous occasions and wanted to indulge in a quality rijst taffel on the last night of our holiday. We researched our restaurant choice on several forums. We did not enjoy this meal. The food was cold, and whilst spicy, lacked depth of flavour in all other aspects other than saltiness. We needed to drink... More

Sampurna offers traditional Indonesian food in Amsterdam on Dutch flower market Singel. They offer a selection of traditional rice tables from mild to very 'pedis'. Every single dish has a different taste! The price is good (value for money), but high compared to other Indonesian restaurants outside the centre. But, it is worth a visit (and coming back for more)
