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

This restaurant is highly recommended by our local friends. The food was wonderful, nicely presented and the service was good. Don't forget to feed the meter for parking.

This restaurant was a real find. The rijstaffel was extremely good with a nice variety of dishes and an excellent beef rendang. The food was also freshly cooked, which is not always the case with a rijstaffel. The staff were friendly and provided a high standard of service and most of the customers were locals, which speaks for itself. I... More

Very nice indonesian restaurant. The food is fresh and well presented. Welcoming atmosphere . The service is efficient and very friendly. The restaurant is located in a residential area and it is worth a detour for having a nice dinner. It is the best indonesian food that I have tasted so far in den haag. There are still few places...

In Den Haag one must eat Indonesian food, reflecting the huge emigrant population's spicing up of Dutch fare offerings. Didong is delightful, with a modern take on some classic SE Asian dishes.

Despite being a Brit, I consider my to be a a bit of a connoisseur of Indonesian food having lived in NL some time ago as well as visiting Indonesia a few times. Without question, this is the best Indonesian restaurant outside Indonesia itself I've been to. I went on a Sunday evening and it was packed despite being in... More

The Hague is home to many Indonesian restaurants, take-outs and diners. Also, The Hague has a very critical audience: the people with (family) roots in the former Dutch East Indies and staff and family members of the Indonesian Embassy. To stand out and stay succesful, is quote an accomplishment. Didong was à newcomer in The Hague and à succesful one.... More

Be careful foreigners: very good aubergine and amazing coconut milk chicken but...BURNING! For people not used to Indonesian food this (although excellent) small cozy place in the Hague can reveal itself super super spicy. Try the take away, in case the restaurant is - as usual - fully booked!
