Great food, nice modern atmosphere and friendly service. Come here often to enjoy the various rijsttafels.

We had a very very good dinner at this good looking restaurant and would rate it very good but..... the men's bathroom was a mess: the toilet was leaking. 26 euro's for a bottle of house white-wine I think it's expensive.

We went here on the recommendation of Trip travelers and weren't dissappointed ..Far from it ..the staff were friendly, the place buzzing, the food a lovely surprise . We like many others had the Rijsttafel..16 lovely tasting dishes gives you a good intro into Indonesian cooking . Luckily we decided to book..would definitely visit again and again

Great location!Friendly staff and good service!!The food is amazing!We will go back soon.My advice if you go for a rijstaffel don't take a starter otherwise you will feel bulking and won't be able to enjoy dessert.

this is definitely one of the best restaurants in Utrecht. Terrific indonesian food. Try a 'rijsttafel' and you get a table full off small snacks. Literally there is no place left on the table (ok its a small table:)

Modern, informal atmosphere, not a conventional Indonesian restaurant in appearance or in the choice of dishes. It all tasted excellent. A busy place, you need to make a reservation.

I come here every year and it's very enjoyable. Best is the "Indonesian Rijsttafel" which is literally tens of dishes on the table for everyone to share. Taste is fantastic. One downside: the place is popular and reservations are always necessary. Haven't been able to get a table without one. Nice touch: they take pictures of all their guests (if... More

If you eat here. The food is just very good and there is a nice atmosphere. For an Indonesian restaurant it's not comparable with ordinary Indonesian restaurants. Better service, atmosphere and food.

I am not an expert on Indonesian food at all but all I can say was that everything we ate was absolutely delicious, beautifully flavoured and presented. We decided to have the rice table meals and ended up with about 25 small dishes, nothing disappointed, with an interesting variety of tastes. After the meal there was no raging thirst or... More

We went here because of all the rave reviews. First, yes - you need reservations. We did not have any, and were lucky to get seats at the bar. Many others came later and were turned away. This is fine, just FYI. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a neat place. The food I thought was just OK... More
