Went to Blauw because I had read it was an excellent rice table restaurant. We didn't have a reservation but were seated immediately, despite the crowd. Our server was patient and helpful with some weary travelers, and with his guidance we had an amazing dining experience. The food was more varied than I had imagined it would be, the presentation...

We were recommened by our Dutch friends to dine at this Indonesian restaurant. We had a shock when we saw the waitress presenting all those mini delights on our table. I was familiar with some tastes and others not but on the whole it was interesting and fun. A must try and I will definately return when I next visit... More

I had heard that there were a lot of Indonesian restaurants in Amsterdam and so I was eager to try it while I was there as I had not eaten Indonesian before. We asked a few people (in our hotel/taxi drivers) where they would recommend and they all suggested Blauw. We were not disappointed. The restaurant itself is beautiful, modern... More

First time trying this type of cuisine, and it was a great experience. The chef made a point to introduce himself and also personally bring a small dessert of Banyan leaf ice cream. Highly recommend, and we will be returning next time we are in town.

We got the rijsttafel meat and veggie, a fish dish, and my daughter had the kid's menu and chose the chicken skewers. It was a very good meal. We had good service as well. It was very easy to book online and the restaurant confirmed the reservation right away. We took the tram #2 down and walked about 5 minutes... More

This is by far the best Indonesia in Amsterdam. It is pricey - but worth it. Definitely get the rijsttafel -- it's a great way to taste a variety of dishes and they are all delicious. I would suggest making a reservation as it does get busy.

This is an Indonesian restaurant located away from the city center and the tourist areas. It has a contemporary feel on three levels. We ordered the "rice table" meals. We asked about splitting one but they encouraged us to each order one. In retrospect, this was a mistake since 22 small dishes arrived to the table. I ordered the vegetarian... More

The reviews for Blauw are bang on. An excellent meal, and very friendly and helpful service. We had the Rijstafel meat and veggie - a huge, varied and simply delicious meal. Our introduction to Indonesian food and we will be back. Everyone were clearly enjoying their evening and experience. It's not hard to get to - West of Vondelpark. Take... More
