Excellent

Had dinner there on March 6th for the first time in several years - if anything it has improved and the service was excellent too. My fellow diner is Dutch and his wife heralds from Indonesia and is thus a great aficionado of Indonesian food. He described it as the best Indonesian food he had ever... read more

The restaurant has been recommended by my cousin, and she was right. The service provided by the two people that work at the salon - one lady and one guy - was very good. Thanks to the waiter, we order a meal called "Rice Table", which gave us a good overview of the indonesian cuisine, once it is comprised by... More

Simply the best Indonesian restaurant in Amsterdam. Not cheap but seriously good genuine Indonesian 'rijsttafel' where the dishes are classified from mild (no star) hot (1star) very hot (2stars) and absolutely @#%¥!! (3 stars). If you choose the last dish you get questioned (not for newbies) :-) and 30 seconds after tasting it your body gets hot and you start... More

We have rijstaffel here every time we are in town. Let them know ahead if you can't handle spicy, because it is spiiccyy! I found out that the owner recently passed away, but they have kept up the standards and are really a tribute to his memory. They should be very proud.

Tempo Doeloe is an incredible restaurant. It is not cheap, you have to book in advance but it is all worth it! It is family owned and the staff are beyond welcoming and extreamly helpful and diligent. Don't understand how this has had any bad reviews, have been here four times and every one of them has been a delight!

I think this was really good place to go and taste some Indonesian food. We had 'everything' on the table in small pots. Some mild, some medium and some hot. And one really hot. Service was fast and friendly and they were extra polite to everyone. Place is quite small and as there was many groups like ours, I think... More

I have to say that we were very lucky, because we arrived at 8pm on a saturday night, hoping to get a reservation for a 10pm table, but when we were about to give them our name someone called and cancelled their reservation for two... so we had our table immediately. We felt so grateful that we decided to order... More

I went there in a group of 10 people who were all very hungry by the time we turned up. In any other restaurant sorting out the order for 10 adults would easily be a 10-15 min task but not here. The staff recommended all of us to go for the rice table and it couldn't have been a simpler... More
