Very yummy indonesian food. When we ordered they gave good suggestions about what to order so we didn't double up. Just need a bit more proactive service, hard to catch their eye. We didn't even get offered a second drink.

When visiting Amsterdam having diner at Sampurna is a must if you like Indonesian food. I went there twice this week and had two different 'rijsttafels'. Both were delicious! Reserving in advance is recommended.

We have been previously, located as it is by the flower market and a great place for eating before exploring the local night life. We had the vegetarian rijstafel, as my partner is vegan, and they made sure that the dishes all complied, which was excellent, and I ordered a dish of mixed satay so that I could get my... More

I went here for one night after strolling along heading for a different. They provide you with some dips and crackers to start with so you can choose how hot you want your meal, which was very helpful. We had the sharing taster, rijstaffel, and went for the mild one. The food was very good, the service very friendly and... More

Welcome to Amsterdam…a tourist trap. And this place supports it. Food average at best and service -3 stars. Will not go back to Sampurna but rather take my chances on another place offering rijstafel.

We visited Sampurna for an early dinner, which seemed to be a good idea as we did not have reservations. It is quite small and quickly filled. We shared one of their menu samplers and were not disappointed. This allows you to sample many differing dishes, a few of which we hadn't tried before. The food is interesting, inventive and... More

Accueil avec le sourire. Les serveuses prennent le temps d'expliquer. On commence avec des plats doux, puis épicés, puis plus Fort ! Nice Welcome. The waitresses explain you clearly, because You ll begin this soft meal, spicy meal and strong (finally) strong spicy meal

At the flower market this busy Indonesian restaurant has very helpful staff explaining the dishes. Meat ones better than the vegetarian sadly , the tofu the least good. Flavours of most dishes v good. Tropical fruit salad pricey but excellent. Narrow range beers ( ie one! )

High food quality, good service, and a quality (though small) selection of wines make this a good bet for a pleasant meal. Prices are reasonable. The fixed price "rice table" menus are a pretty good value.

right on Single, where the flower market is, there is this indonesian restaurant that gives way to a variety of the cuisine in that country, which was formerly under dutch control - if you are an amateur, the samplers they offer = rijstaffel - is a good way to start...
