We visited for dinner on a Saturday night and very much enjoyed the Indonesian "rijstaffel" taster menu which had a great range of flavours. Service was ok though not especially attentive and the only real complaint was the lighting - it was so murky and dark, that sadly, you don't get to "feast your eyes" before you eat. That said,...

Great Rijstaffel, tried to different ones, since the very serviceminded waiter asked about our likings and how tolerant we were for spicy food! Nice wines and beer and very affordably prices. Lots of guests but still time to treat every table quickly and polite.

We had problems deciding what to order but the "rice tables" take care of that and work out good value for a lot of food! Everything was very tasty, if a little spicy and the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly.

We were so looking forward to this. We are a couple in our 30s who live in London so we are generally spoilt with restaurants but we heard that the Indonesian food in Amsterdam is great...aaaand.. the food at Sampurna was pretty much inedible. The sauces were sickly and gloopy, the peanut sauce made me feel sick, meat was dry... More

It seems most good Indonesian restaurants are closed for lunch during the week. This one is not only open and centrally located by the flower market but also quite good with great service.

I had a wonderfull dinner at Sampurna. Indonesian food, very well presented and cooked. An explosion of flavours and spicy. Try the combined plates. A wonderful surprise.

Friendly and a bit absentminded service. Ordered rijstafel, the tastes were ok, but the food seemed reheated, crispy items were too soft, and vegetables looked as if they had been waiting on the counter for too long. The fish was really overcooked. On the positive side was the variety of dishes which gave a aestheticly pleasant impression when served -... More

After a long trip(s), there is often a desire to find and eat at a restaurant that gives you sufficient amount and good quality and the right taste of food that you are looking for. This was my second experience at Sampurna about 2 years apart since I go to Amsterdam for an annual conference. The spicy chicken and fish... More

Delicious food, lovely service. For one of us it was the first time tasting Indonesian food. When we return to Amsterdam it will be top of our list of places to visit.

I was there with some colleagues and customers and really enjoyed the menu option "rijsttafel", so that you have the chance to taste a bit of everything.
