This place is popular with tourists and is able to handle large groups. Service is good. Food is tasty, but not very exciting.

For a table of eight diners we ordered three tasting menus. Everything was delicious, not too spicy, and the mixture was surprising. Acceptable price to be in the center of Amsterdam

The place is still very pleasant and quite unique, but I find that the quality of the food is steadily going down. It is becoming boring and a bit stodgy. Indonesian food is exciting full of different textures and tastes. It was like this in the beginning with Kantjil, but not anymore. My assumption is that the kitchen is full... More

We ate here on 28th of November and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Delicious food served quickly and to a high standard. The restaurant was very busy, but the waiting staff had no problem attending to everyone. Well worth a visit!

We ordered the combination meal #2 for our entire group at 27.50 euros per person which did not include our drinks. We each had the house specialty of the Kantjil Tea which is a slightly alcoholic tea with ginger and fresh lemon grass which was... More

Walking around Amsterdam city center around 16:30. We wanted to eat some Indonesian food and walked into Kantjil. I am half Indonesian and although the flavors are different per region; I know what Indonesian food tastes like. What Kantjil serves isn’t Indonesian food. We walked in without a reservation and got a table at the front on the couch, next... More
