We ordered the mixed rijstaffel with meat, fish and veg. Since there are a variety of dishes to sample, don't repeat our mistake of waiting until the end to try the fish. It was sitting on the warming tray and was overcooked by the time we finished tasting the beef, goat, pork and chicken. Sample the fish first. I appreciated... More

I booked on internet for my wife and our daughter (1 year old). They arranged a table in the corner not to disturb other clients. We took 2 different rice tables. It was great. Nice to have a picture from the waiter. Easy to reach by tram.

This was one of our favorite restaurants of all time. order the "rice plates," and they bring out an amazing assortment of small plates of the most delicious Indonesian food. Fresh ingredients and perfect service.

Loved it! Showed up without a reservation on Sunday, but luckily I got a seating. Make sure you make a reservation as it could be booked even on dead nights. The food was great (I had the lamb with sweet and sour sauce! highly recommend, even by ex-employees). Maybe they will open a branch is the states someday, and that... More

opted for a mixed rijstaffel as we were novices to the world of Indonesian cooking. absolutely superb selection of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes with a palette of amazing taste. washed down with the recommended Indonesian beer. booked online, full restaurant is always a good sign.

I love food and this was my first time having Indonesian. After researching many Indonesian restaurants in Amsterdam, I found this one. So glad that we went for our last dinner in Amsterdam! We made reservations, I am glad that we did because the place was packed. Hip, neat, fun vibe with a mix of locals and tourists. My husband... More

Okay, that was what stood out......The sateh kambing is spectaculair (well, in my book) and although all the food was great and tasty this one stands out for me. Apart from that the sateh was a bit late to arrive but not so that we thought we had to ask just yet.......Someone obviously did notice as we got a jar... More

Whatever you choose (fish, shrimps, goat, veal, vega, ...) everything tastes great. So just order the rice table and taste everything! And enjoy the friendly service and great wines too.

This restaurant was highly rated by Tripadvisor, so we tried it. Reviews had said that ordering the "rice table" was the way to go and that even though you got all these dishes, they were succulent and easy to finish. So, off we went and the two of us each orders the "rice table" @ about 32 E apiece. It... More
