The rice table was really awesome, a great taste experience. Was more then enough for us both, without first taking starters. Lot of different dishes, greatly prepared with awesome tast. Would definitively recommend this restaurant, only small 'note' was the ambience was a bit -too- dark. Although I enjoy a good ambience, it shouldn't be so dark that it's difficult... More

"Wow, just wow" - this term was way overused on a recent trip to this restaurant. A mixture of Indonesian and Dutch food was absolutely stunning and well worth an experience whilst in Utrecht. Arriving during a very busy time we were quickly seated. Our waiter was very helpful and the menu did have an English translation on all the... More

We had a great dining experience even though I had to move to one of the lamps in order to read the menu. So if I should find one negative thing it the lighting. Not enough light to read the menu. ;-) That being said the service was great - fast and good at helping my GF to find a... More

The place is nice decorated & with nice atmosphere. The menu was written with small letters and English letters was too small to see.Despite the fact that the lightening was low for reading the menu. There was not enough space and crew was trying to fit as many as possible customers in such a small place. Service was not quite... More

We were 2, my mum and me, we took 1 rice table and an extra plate. Perfect decision since this made us already stuffed enough. Food was very tasteful, lots of different flavours and not too spicy. Together with the tea and coffee at the end came a nice slice of speculoos cake and little liquor for free, very thoughtful.... More

The rijsttafel was amazing. We were five (with two children) so ordered for 4. Can't remember exactly how many, but our table was covered in small-ish tasty dishes. The goat was incredibly tender and yummy and stood out for all of us. If you enjoy Indonesian food, happen to be in Utrecht, then you've got to go to Blauw. My... More

Went here for a business dinner last night and we ordered the meat and vegetarian rice table. All dishes served in different plates (like the picture) and all very tasty and well cooked. The staff is great and anticipates perfectly. It was already quite some time ago that I have been to an Indonesian restaurant but this will for sure... More

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.
