If you want to try some exotic food, go to this indonesian restaurant and ask for the Nasi Goreng, where you can taste some of the flavours from spicy to sweet in just one plate. Exquisite!

If you want good value try the rice table dish and you will experience little bites of different dishes that is authentic to Indonesian cuisine. I found that they go easy on the spice although I could handle more. Always a fun place to go to with friends .

Having spent time in virtually every southeast Asian country except Indonesia, my husband and I were looking forward to our first rijstafel. Unfortunately, neither the food nor the service lived up to our high expectations. We were seated at a tiny table, barely large enough to hold our dinner, and so close to the diners around us that we were... More

Came here with my partner on a trip to Amsterdam, we were looking for somewhere to eat and due to TripAdvisor reviews decided to see if there was availability. Phoned the restaurant and they managed to squeeze us in. First of all, the atmosphere was good. The restaurant itself is nicely presented and gives a good vibe. The food was... More

Served quickly and farily priced right- if your're in AMsterdam you should go to at least one Indoseian Rest. and this is in ld town and easier to get to walking then the more expesnive and "chic" ones and good food friendly servers

The second Rijsttafel meal I've had during my trip to Amsterdam. There were a few options on the menu differing in price and the number of items. We chose the basic one that had Chicken, Pork, Beef and vegetable options. The food wasn't bad - not overly spicy, but really wasn't overly flavorful either. There was a lot of food,... More

I am Indonesian and I live in London, which used to have a very good Indonesian restaurant in he Soho quarter. For some reason, they closed recently. So you can imagine my delight when I found that this restaurant in Amsterdam has a very good reputation of serving very good Indonesian food. Well, I'm slightly disappointed because the food didn't... More
