My parents and I were in Amsterdam for 5 nights and ate here twice, it was so good. Very good value (main courses around €11), the best bargain we found in Amsterdam. Very tasty food and quick service. Great location.

Unfriendly staff...I found a hair (long black just like the waitress') and asked kindly if they could replace it. I think the first waitress didn't understand my request so after 15' waiting I asked a 2nd one if they were making it and she just replied they don't do that, I didn't have to pay but I had no option...

This restaurant is just fantastic, loved the experience of sitting outside with the flowers and all. There are no alcoholic beverages in the menu and that was not good for me because I'm used to drink a beer with my lunch always but the food was INCREDIBLE. Totally recommended!

Down home Indonesian food. Excellent skewers and rice, plus a dish of chicken and shrimp that was spicy and tasty. No pretense, just good cooking and good value in convenient location on Gravenstraat.

This is not a hyped up "Indo-fusion" place with lots of fakey atmosphere. This is a "mom and pop" shop serving deliciously prepared basics from a limited menu. It is a bit hard to find, but well worth the careful search down a small street.

When I have guests sightseeing at Dam Square craving for Indonesian food or insist on eating rice, I suggest they go here. "Authentic"? Indonesian food never tastes the same from place to place back in Indonesia anyways, especially if compared to grandma's cooking, so why should it taste here exactly as it does back in Indonesia, whatever taste that is...

A friend took me to this eatery when I came to Amsterdam 6 years ago. I like its casual ambience, friendly owner, no fuss service style. Not like others fancy Indonesian restaurants in the city that offer rijstafel plus other ala carte menu which is usually expensive, this one offers some Indonesian dishes in a modest way at reasonable price...

From the outside and from the interior design it looks like very non-fancy place, and the ambiance inside, and the look of menu and utensils proved it. The food was fine, I had chicken soup and an eggroll. The chicken soup was surprisingly good, and the eggroll felt like it was not made in the restaurant, though it was warm... More

I happen to discover this restaurant en route from Dam Square to my hotel, which was Westcord City Centre Hotel, which by the way is a nice hotel with super friendly staff. Half of the clientele when I ate at this restaurant was Indonesian and the other half Dutch. The owners were very friendly and the food very delicious! The... More

Sie-Joe is one of my favorite restaurants in the Center of Amsterdam. I have tried most dishes and have never been disappointed.
