You must go! Amazing!!!

First of all, the decoration is really nice and the waiter was friendly and helped us to choose the food! I ordered a rice table and was a LOT of food for two. Everything was delicious!

We found the Blauw through tripadvisor. You would never find it by chance, it's located in a narrow back alley. When we - a group of ten - arrived at about 7:30pm the restaurant was already quite busy. We were greeted warmly and seated at a large table on the second floor in a separate room with a view into...

Reviews suggested that Blauw would serve the indonesian rijsttafel of choice, and indeed, the food was fabulous. What further enhanced the evening was the friendly and fun staff, as well as the simple but tasteful decor. Overall, a real "let's do it again!"experience.

We had a nice meal here, it is very popular and booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. We had the rijsttafel between two people, 18 dishes! The only complaint was one of the male waiters kept 'sniffing' as if he had a cold or allergy, and then wiped his nose on his apron! Nearly put my wife off her meal,... More

Rijsttafel food was excellent, not overpowering. These meals can make you feel bloated but not here. As our party was delayed by one hour - our fault - , staff made us very welcome and did not rush us for the people who came after us.

I've tried many Asian cuisines but I'm new to Indonesian and wanted to experience it while in Amsterdam. As we were visiting on a Saturday we made a reservation--would definitely recommend this as the restaurant was full all evening. The space has a very modern yet cozy feel. Per many of the other online reviews, we opted for a rijstaffel,... More

We had a rice table; scores of little dishes including spicy beef, chicken and fish dishes, deep fried banana, rice, coconut, vegetables. Utterly delicious. Lovely service. If I had one complaint it's that the food came very quickly so that it felt a little rushed.

Like many people, we ordered the rijstaffel (rice table) which is supposed to be a good introduction to the Indonesian cuisine. The dishes themselves are tasty and interesting, but the prices are stunning for what you get. Let's face it and remove the poetic masks of beautification: In the end - you get a dozen of tiny plates with just... More
