It was my first in the restaurant. All comments were pretty good so expectations were high too. We had no reservation and it was full - good sign - but we were offered a table in 20 mins. The waitress made the choice for us as we suggested and I can assure everything was tasty and well cooked. Spicy but... More

We were warmly greeted and seated. The service throughout was very friendly and patient, you cannot fault it. Foodwise we had chicken loempias which were spot on. Then had one of the house specials (a plate full, I mean FULL) of everything. To be honest I've eaten a lot better, I wasn't that impressed by the nasi goreng (fried rice)... More

Went here for a casual business dinner (3 persons in total). We used to go to for years and years to Sarinah (also in The Hague) but as the owner of that restaurant recently changes, we decided to book at Didong. The 3 of us are unanimous about Didong: it's great! The menu card is very simple; in a way... More

The Hague is (outside of Indonesia) the city for Indonesian cuisine. And Didong is the best of this genre it has to offer. Suggestion: 'Babi Pangang'.

In a neighborhood and not in a touristy area. Pleasant seating inside or outside. Wide range of Indonesian specialties, The Nasi Rames assortment main plate is big enough for two with 1-2 starters. Can't see how only 2 people could work through the rijsttafel. Cordial service. Nice blend of spices but not hot or over the top. A fine representation... More

Our driver said this was the best in town. Oh my, what an understatement! We started with the chicken spring rolls. They're small so get one for everyone at the table. For our main course, got a bunch of items to share. Pork satays, beef with spicy coconut sauce, spicy fried rice and veggies in peanut sauce. All amazing! The... More

Didong is a small and cozy restaurant a bit far from the city center, but it's worth the trip. The service is really nice and the food comes quickly. I've had their vegetarian rijsttafel twice and it is a fantastic choice. The combination of different flavors, textures and levels of spicing is outstanding, and it makes for a very fun... More
