Relaxing meal, comfort food for my Dutchie hubby

My sweet Dutch husband and I stole away to NYC for a quick anniversary trip. I wanted to surprise him with some Bitterballen and Saucijzenbroodjes but couldn't find any Dutch restaurants. But I hoped he would be just as excited about a Rijsttafel. We went with a local friend, and had the... read more

We had the signature dish, 15 plates. Plenty of food. Great pace of food. The waitress/owner kept us topped off with drinks. Had never tried this type of food before, loved it. Between Indian and Thai. Really cool experience. Place is small, but no crowd. Brooklyn rocks!

This Indonesian mom and pop restaurant opened it's doors in 1993 and as a Park Slope native I've dined here many of times. Java's ambiance is lovely, a tiny tranquil / intimate space where you can consistently enjoy a great meal overtime you visit. My favorite dish the Sambal Oreng Udan, I also love their Rijistafel sample platters with all... More

We were looking for a restaurant close to our daughter's apartment and this venue fit the bill. It is on a corner of 7th Avenue and consists of a narrow facility with two rows of tables and a small serving station/bar in front of the kitchen. Our waiter suggested that the three of us share a Rijsttafel for two ($59)... More

The service here was very prompt and extremely courteous.The food was just average in quality and flavor, almost lacking in seasoning. For an Indonesian restaurant I expected the food to be more heavily seasoned or flavorful, it was not. I ordered the pastel appetizer and it was full of noodles but no vegetables. Peanut dipping sauce was okay, but I... More

Had some friends over from Holland. To give them a taste of home, I brought them here (Indonesian Rijsttafel is a staple in Holland, and, these particular firends have also been to Indonesia). They thought the food was awesome and that it was as good as if not better than the Rijsttafel back home in Holland. My wife and I... More
