This is a great little restaurant and I would definitely go again. It's the best indonesian food I've had in NL and I've eaten at quite a few places. Definitely a big step above the standard restaurant. The two of us ordered the lakhsa which was good but not quite what you get in in Singapore, the fish which was... More

Huge variety of different plates to try, wine and service were also fantastic. Little bit on the pricier side of what Utrecht has to offer - perfect for special occasions! Nice atmosphere too. I would recommend making a reservation if you don't want to risk waiting for a table.

Stunning food, cheerful helpful staff, great ambience. If you like Indonesian or south east Asian food generally you will love this place. Well priced and a gastronomical delight.

After a long day of sightseeing and shopping my company and I were hungry and thirsty upon arriving Restaurant Blauw in Utrecht. For those that have enjoyed the run of the mill Indonesian food in Holland, you're in for a treat. In stead of the ordinary Dutch Indonesian food served in those places Blauw serves actual well cooked and authentic... More

It was so busy, mid week no seats for walkin at 7pm, but i was offered a seat at the bar. I talked to the waiter and took the meat mixed plate menu.....the one in their PR shot.. Oh my , maybe 20 plates of what I can only describe as palate heaven, every one different. Just simply heaven.

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!
