“Simply awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

What an excellent culinary experience! We went for the all you can eat menu, tasting a dozen or more indonesian dishes and each one of them was absolutely outstanding. Every dish was explained in detail by the manager who was ready to accomodate all our needs, incuding the request of our youngest child for non spicy foods. A must for indonesian cuisine in Amsterdam and a service that goes beyond any customer expectation. I would give it 6 out of 5 if possible! If I have to be fussy, the water is overpriced. Total bill including drinks around 30€ ahead.

“Just go for it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012 via mobile

This place was suggested us by our hotel staff. We had never eaten Indonesian cusine so we decided to give it a try. When we arrive, a very kind waiter invites us to take a seat. We choose one of the mixed menus which includes small portions of different dishes. What to say: very good food, everything, extremely kind and friendly staff and good price-quality relation. We spent 47 € for the two menus and a half a liter of house wine. We would definetly return if we went back to Amsterdam!! Absolutely suggested!!

“Delicious and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

Very engaging staff, a lot of explanation on the food, which is varied and very tasty.
The rijskaffel is amazing. Good value for money as well (under 25 euros, drinks included)

Fantastic meal experience. Very friendly staff. Would definitely go back again. Don't know why I have to write 50 characters.

“Great Indonesian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

The food at Kartika is quite tasty. The service was a bit slow when we went, but the waiters were friendly and the food was worth the wait. We ordered one of the rijstafels, which is a great way to taste a variety of Indonesian food. We'd been to Bali last year and the food at Kartika was much better and tastier then anything we'd tasted there.
