one of the best Indonesian restaurants in Amsterdam

We had the rijstaffel and it was delicious - lot of different flavours, nicely cooked meat and fish and plenty of food! Highly recommend. The service was a bit slow to begin with (took 15 minutes or so before we were offered drinks and menus) but once they got going it was fine! and everyone was friendly. Off the beaten... More

Food is good and they created a good Indonesian tapas and it's really good. Value for money! A lot of food to eat. Negative-the Laksa is not what Im expected but the whole setting is nice. I would recommend if you are In Amsterdam and like spicy and Indonesian food.

I’ve tried about a half dozen rijsttafels in the Netherlands, and Blauw ranks among the best. The restaurant is outside the city center, so is less touristy than others. The portions were massive, the meats were moist, and the sauces full of flavor. What more can you ask for? I definitely recommend the rijsttafel.

I visited Blauw in early February. We had made a reservation before leaving the states on Tripadvisor's easy to use reservation system. We were told about Blauw from a friend's daughter who lives in Amsterdam. We were so glad to have found this place. We had the vegetable rijsttafel (rice table) for two. They were so nice to tell me... More

We did not even get to taste the food - we made reservations but accidentally got the date wrong. After walking 3 miles to get to the place, we were told there was no room for walk-ins despite multiple open tables. We told the manager we walked, and there were only 2 of us - they still refused service. If... More

My first time in Amsterdam so we tried Blauw as it had good reviews on Tripadvisor. I wasn't overly impressed. Firstly the staff badly need more training. The girl serving us didn't know what she was doing. She took about 10 minutes to get the foil off a bottle of wine only to discover that it was the wrong one... More

This is a great restaurant for ristaffel (the four of us dove straight into the meat/fish ristaffel option and didn't try the other dishes). There was a wide variety of meat,fish,and vegetable dishes; each was distinctly prepared and delicious. Service was friendly and attentive. We had a great chat with the chef at the end of the evening and he... More

This place offers a lot of good food and is good value for money. They make a good Indonesian tapas, really good. The atmosphere is nice, it is transformed into a place in Indonesia, Javanese Indonesia.

Ordered one "table rice" for two. They normally charge 20 euros for an extra plate. But they charged us two meals instead! Unfortunately, I found out this only next day, so could not complain. The food is ok, but beware of this kind of cheating!
