Try the rice table!

Great service and amazing food. We ordered the rice table (rijsttafels) which is basically many small plates of different curries, veg, meats etc. served with rice. My husband and I were so full but we kept eating until all the plates were empty as the food was just so delicious. Would love to... read more

Visited this little resto during the Tour de France opening. Service was fast and friendly. Both my friend and I ordered the rijstafel, one with fish and one with meat, so that we could taste everything. The food presentation was really cute. Each item came in its separated little bowl. Mind you, even the garnishes like coconut, half an egg,... More

Very good food! I loved Sateh of goat and the beef wonton was exceptional Would not be surprised if they will get a Michelin star soon! The diversity of flavor is almost mind blowing. Definitely not cheap but worth it

We definitely enjoyed our dinner here. The rijstafel was excellent and the wine recommendation was absolutely great. Service was very friendly and fast. Can't wait to visit again and can definitely say that the food was even better than in many places we visited in Indonesia. Maybe we were just unlucky there but really says a lot about Blauw, too!

Definitely not a good experience for the six of us. The Indonesian rijstafel was not authentic looking nor tasty. The student waiter freaked out when we video taped our table with food for fear her face would be exposed. Big turnoff, we didn't care for desert and left the place promptly. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to tourists nor anyone....

I went here with my girlfriend during our visit to Utrecht, and after reading all the positive reviews in Dutch. We didn't have a reservation but there was still a place left for us at the bar. The restaurant looks really cozy. Nice interior, comfortable seats, nicely designed restrooms. Based on my restaurant experience, the tables are not too small... More

Better than the Blauw in Amsterdam. Go for the rijsttafel of course! It looks little but plenty of food! Reserve well in advance for weekend or dinner time. It gets packed easily.

The crab and shrimp biscuits starters were a portent of the good things to come. I was dining alone and thought that a rijsttafel would be too much, so I ordered fish in red curry sauce. It was excellent, and came with about 6 of the sides that would come with rijsttafel. Each little side was perfect with the fish.... More

I visited this restaurant twice. Both times, the food was very good. Authentic Indonesian. Try the home-made sambal.
