Description: Open only for dinner, starting at 6pm. Adventurous food in a Cosmopolitan setting, located in the heart of Amsterdam's most beautiful canal area. MAX is a place to explore a new International cuisine with the additional flavours of MamaMax' traditional Indonesian home cooking. Fresh and sparkling spiced. Creative but no nonsens food. Forget the expectation of an old fashion Indonesian restaurant or these days trendy Michellin star copy of deconstructive foam and lines attractions on your plate but enjoy simply our well cooked food, nice setting and friendly service. MAX has a short uncomplicated interesting wine list, excellence wines for reasonable prices. Seperate room for function for groups.

Turned up speculatively, and were lucky to persuade the friendly waiter to squeeze us in later that evening. Decided on the Indonesian taster menu - chicken satay starter (phenomenal, nothing like any satay you've ever tasted before), followed by a selection of 7 or 8 different dishes including beef curry, sticky chicken, sea bass and a range of vegetable mains....

Having heard that we probably needed to book, we arrived at 6.30 on a Sunday evening hoping to get in. We were warmly welcomed and within twenty minutes the restaurant was buzzing and full. Our taster menu was a great combination of tastes and textures. The staff were so friendly and helpful that we felt wonderfully well looked after. We... More

This was our first time having Indonesian food and it was incredible!! The restaurant is in a great location, just off the main canals. It's trendy and hip inside. The chicken satay appetizer was so so good, as were the max classic chicken and sea bass mains. We even talked to Max for a few minutes and he's super nice.... More

Friendly staff, easy reservations process (email the restaurant) and great food in Jordaan make this a definite recommendation. The rijsttafel is wonderful with a good mix of curries and additions and comes with an appetizer and an awesome dessert plate. You need at least two for this choice. The whole meal was delicious and one of the best we had... More

the food and choices and service are excellent but this restaurant is crammed and noisy, so you tend to leave right after and not stay and relax

We visited the restaurant at the weekend. I was part of a large group and had booked in advance. We all opted for a variety of dishes, rather than the set menu. Each one of us absolutely loved our meal - the service was outstanding, the food perfect and the accompanying wine was sublime. The restaurant is in a great... More

Possibly my favourite meal out ever. I had the set menu and the scallops were delicious! Great atmosphere and easy walk to centre. Loved it.

Coming from CA where Asian Fusion is found on every corner we have high expectations. Max met them with his combinations of ingredients, flavors and presentations. Well done!

Max restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of the B & B we were staying it. It is a small neighborhood restaurant with absolutely great Indonesian food. Be sure to make reservations, we were fortunate to have a warm evening and sat outside.
