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.

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.
