Fabulous Rijsttafel!

We enjoyed the traditional Rijsttafel and a curry dish. They were both fabulous. The wait staff was excellent. We sat below an amazing mural - a family picture that included the grandmother of the current owner. We rode our bikes there...and like much of Amsterdam it was almost hard to find a place... read more

We were thrilled with our dinner in this terrific Indonesian restaurant. My husband and I both had the rijsttafel. Each of the dishes was delicious, and the variety of ingredients, tastes, and textures was perfect. The restaurant is rather far from the center, but it's worth the tram ride or long walk through Vondel Park. We planned to return to... More

The food here is excellent. I had been here before for business. This time, I had dinner with a friend. We both had the ikan rasa: fish rice table. This is a typical Dutch way of approaching Indonesian cuisine that I think is among the best in the world. Rice tables give you the opportunity to try many different dishes.... More

Booked this in advance but within 1 week and there was plenty of availability for the Saturday night, although I expect due to the popularity you wouldn't just be able to walk in and get a table at the weekend. Arrived 15 mins late due to the public transport not being available and was disappointed that the first thing I... More

the chicken & beef on skewer, and beef stew all tasted like pre-cooked and re-heated before serving. meat were too dry. the black rice pudding (dessert) were good, but took over 20 minutes to get served (although it was Friday night, but it was not busy). the portion of black rice were too little (2 portions of bite size). I... More

Probably our favorite meal in Amsterdam. Really solid food, start to finish. Staff was great. Our three-year-old daughter scarfed it all down happily. Reasonable prices, but still a nice spot for a night out.

We ate a rice table 7 years ago in Amsterdam and wanted to try another at a different restaurant. I saw this one recommended on several websites and food blogs so we decided to try it. We were not disappointed -- the food, the decor, the service were all amazing. It's a bit of a tram ride from the center.... More

I booked the restaurant online. I found the confirmation process very efficient up to the point of arrival at the restaurant. I had gotten a confirmation email on the day of the booking, but due to lack of WiFi only confirmed via e-mail on the same day as the booking. It caused a bit of havoc on arrival at the... More

Our party of seven ate here in July. We booked ahead of time to make sure that we got a table at this highly rated rice table restaurant. My wife had rice table many years ago and wanted us all to experience this Indonesian experience. I thought that this was an average place to eat. The food was good but... More
