We went to Blauw after hearing rave review from friends. The restaurant books up well in advance and they take 2 hour slots for tables, expect Sunday nights when you can book a table and stay. We went for our wedding anniversary, on a Sunday night. We opted for the set menu and it was outstanding, great quality well cooked... More

As many others that night we went for the set menu. Great food, a lot of different flavours and a friendly staff made our night. The only negative thing that is worth mentioning is that there might have been too many flavours, forcing the kitchen to re-use some of them but with slight alterations. Other than that, perfect!

Everyone likes it, even people not used to eating spicy food. Order rijsttafel to make sure you try a bit of everything.

I just realised that most if my tripadvisor reviews are very positive! How Boring is that?! But thanks to tripadvisor, I haven't gone wrong! Ok so back to this Jem. Cute cozy ambiance, tasting menu for two was enough for 1 hungry man and 2 hungry women. Service was good, location was easy to get to. All over tasty experience.

The rijsttafel was really excellent with lots of really Indonesian tasteful dishes. Service was average, no real attention from the waitresses and ordering had to be done more than once on several moments, despite the restaurant not being half full.

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
