Dreadful. Just dreadful. We were enticed by the somewhat positive reviews after a long day and even in our ravenous state couldn't eat our food. Only made worse by sitting opposite de Plantage restaurant which had been fantastic the night before.

We were just looking for a place to have a quick late lunch in this area and were attracted by the menu in the window. Communication is a bit tricky - they have an English menu but didn't do well with anything beyond that. (I am not complaining about this, just reporting! After all, I dont speak Dutch or Chinese...)... More

Eventhough the staff was very nice, the food was not very good. They offer a very large choice of Chinese and Indonesian dishes...but taste was strange. We chose it because it was near our hotel and wanted to eat Chinese, but we were very disappointed.

Heard from a colleague that this restaurant has good food so we decided to have diner in this restaurant. There is enough to choose for vegetarian food on the menu but when the owner knew that we're vegetarian, she suggested us to have something ( she said it in chinese) so we asked her to serve us 2 vegetarian meals....

We had an interesting selection of food - the standout dish was the Indonesia roast pork, which was excellent. Other food was perfectly fine, and definitely a good choice considering that there are very few restaurants in the area open for lunch.

Six of us had an excellent Indonesian rijsttafel dinner here during a recent stay in Amsterdam. The service was efficient and friendly and the meal was splendid. More and more dishes kept appearing and we rated every one highly. And the price was very reasonable. Highly recommended.

The restaurant is easy to locate: right on the corner of the street with streetcar (Tram) 9 and 14, stop 'Artis'. The tables were dekked with nice good quality cotton table cloth and you were given good thick cotton napkins. The chairs were comfortable. There is a choice between rectangular tabels for 4 or round tables for 6. The service... More

Nice atmosphere. tried Prawn Toast--- was just a cracker with Prawn flavor. Spring rolls- greasy Sweet and sour prawns--- made with tinned fruit and sugary maple syrup from canned fruit. Need a new chef in this place

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
