Nice cosy restaurant with great food and good staff

Great meal super service and the prices were also perfect. The portions are somewhat generous and filled us up after a long days walk. Go out and eat Nasi Goreng at Sie-Joe

I look forward to visiting Amsterdam to indulge in the Indonesian food that results from their former colony. This is a great hole in the wall chokka with Indonesian people, so I presume this is a good sign. I ate here three times and the meals are basic but great, from rice and noodle dishes and soups to satays. This... More

Apparently authentic indonesian food. It is very small, cheap, and the food is filling, tasty and hot (spicy and temp.). Service is basic, as is furniture, and no alcoholic drinks are served.

If you like Indonesian food you will be happy here. The owner is very happy to interact with you and is very proud of what he has attained. It makes for great fun. The food is excellent and the price is good. Don't expect to eat here with a big group. It is a small hole in the wall, but... More

The owner proudly showed us the book 'Where Chefs Eat' where we could see the writeup on his restaurant. This tiny hole in the wall is family run and your meals are cooked fresh. If you like Indonesian dishes this place is for you. Don't expect glitz but do expect a good home-cooked meal.

This small restaurant, close to Dam Square, has a small menu of home-style Indonesian dishes. Food was excellent and portions generous. The service was quick and pleasant. Good value for money. Recommended for a quick, inexpensive meal.

My uncle and aunt brought me here when I visited Amsterdam for Easter break. Came here only once and only tried their Gado-gado (kind of Indonesian salad, steam veggies with peanut sauce and prawn cracker). For me, who is an Indonesian student living in the North West of England, it is extremely hard to find Indonesian food, and I do... More

My first experience with Indonesian. The food in itself is probably not my favourite, I'm not sure i'm a big fan of the flavours, but my meal was war, had a nice smell and was cooked before my eyes so I can't say there was any faults in it. The place is small but tidy and the service is fast... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
