A bit out of the way but worth it if you like North African food

This is an Algerian style restaurant just by a park. It has a lot of outdoor seating but as it was raining we sat inside. You can watch the chefs cooking and it feels an authentic experience. The owner/head chef is always there and a local celebrity.

We enjoyed a very good dinner in their rear patio. We found the service friendly and swift. The portions are good which helps make it a good value. We will be back.

This family run store has been a compulsary stop every time during an Amsterdam visit. Over the years it has not lost its quality delivery of traditional Indonesian food. The small restaurant is nothing special, however the food is a delight an boasts exceptional taste. Ask for a traditional Rice Tafel which is an assortment of several traditional dishes to... More

I used to be a regular here when I lived nearby, now it was a much anticipated visit that totally lived up to my expectations and memories. Excellent Gado Gado (green beans with homemade peanut sauce) and crunchy Babi Pangang (roasted pork), downed with Bintang beer. The staff are rightfully proud of their work, and cry interested in your opinion... More

This is simple: the food is as it would be in the a very good rumah makan you could find somewhere on Java. The smell only is proof of a kokkie that knows what she is doing. Add to that thought going into the food that is about "hey, this is not Bandung but Amsterdam" and eating here is deep... More

After reading favourable reviews on Tripadvisor, we gave this restaurant a try. It wasn't too far from The Golden Tulip where we stayed, a short tram ride on main road. Really good meal, friendly waiting staff, food plentiful and flavoursome. Spoke to the lady chef on way out to enquire about an ingredient which was lemon grass leaves, she was... More

We found this restaurant accidentally as we looked for a restaurant near the tram line 12. The selection of foods is great. The portions are big and the prices are reasonable. We had a very nice dinner in the restaurent. The only problem was that we had to wait quite long for the menu and for the bill.

Good quality of Indonesian food, served with pride and a smile. Take away is always a good thing when you live around the corner, but in the summer it is relaxed to sit on the terrace in the garden. The staff is friendly, helpfull and proud at what they serve, and they can be!
