While in the Netherlands you must experience an Indonesian rice table dinner. Blauw offers one of the best and in a charming setting. With the quantity and variety of tastings this offers we shared one dinner (with meat and vegetables) and we were glad we did (even though we paid an extra 10 Euro to share).

An explosion of different, highly contrasted and prfectly combined flavours. Great great meal! I've always heard wonderful things about Rijsttafel, now I know they were all well deserved.

We agree with other comments saying that it is over-rated. Restaurant is crowded and food is okay not more.

We chose this place as we don't have very many Indonesian restaurants where we live in the UK. Food was authentic although very spicy. Good value for what we had. Bear in mind that you get lots of side dishes as a matter of course so you probably don't need a starter and possibly won't manage a dessert either. Staff... More

Lived in Jakarta for 2 years, was born in Irian Jaya, went back many time for work and pleasure so have a bit an idea of what real Indonesian food tastes like. Blauw is good!

It is quite hard to find a place in Utrecht where you can have a decent meal for a decent price, let alone a great meal for a reasonable price. But here you can find it, truly good Indonesian cooking, a wonderful rice table or just a separate dish, served in a cozy setting with a friendly service. Try the... More

I've also been in Amsterdam, the 'afhaal' in Bilthoven and Den Haag. Utrecht and Den Haag are the best according to me!

Its very hard to find a better Indonesian restaurant than Blauw. The consistency is amazing (having eaten here for three years with big gaps between visits) and the food is sublime. Always great to take a visitor - because they are always so happy with the experience.

We were out for dinner and we ended up in this Indonesian restaurant, mainly recommended by tripadvisor reviews. We took the Rice table for each of us (the meat and shrimps versions). While it seemed too much when all the dishes came at once, we managed to finish everything. The portions are good size to have a good taste of... More
