Being Dutch myself I know my Indonesian food, and this little gem of a restaurants does not offer the bland flavours and overlarge portions you often find in the Dutch-Indonesian restaurants. The food was plenty but we wasted nothing; the flavours are proper Asian... More

Ate this place based on Trip Advisor ratings and it didn't disappoint. Great food - we had rice table for 4 and had multiple different dishes - all were exceptional. Prices were very reasonable. New location -Nieuwe Beestenmarkt 5. Google was very close to the right place. Highly recommend this place!

This venue was across the street from our Hotel (Rembrandt) and the staff here is so pleasant and accomodating. We like ristaffel, but it is so much food. Here they had a mini version. 2 meats, 2 veg, salad and rice on one plate plus the shrimp chips. Every bite was delicious! Good value.

However it is also situated just beside a coffee shop (shop which sell drugs) which draws a lot of people and noise till 10 PM. The food was not to my... More

Great place for take-away, but they also have 4 small tables to serve you. Tempe, tahu are excellent. Try the gado-gado!
