“Excellent Indonesian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Classic 'Rice Table' - Superb well spiced food. Good house red wine. Excellent quick service. Dined here twice during three night stay. Bit pricey (hence 4 stars) but - It is in prime location next to flower market!

“Tightly packed little restaurant - delicious cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Everything was perfect, the location, the place itself, the atmosphere, the competent staff and the exquisite delicacies if one likes spicy dishes :). Ca. 35 euros p.p.

“rijstafel delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We wanted to eat rijstafell during our stay in Amsterdam and were recommended this restaurant by the receptionist at our hotel who said it was one of her personal favourites. It was a great recommendation - we would not have found this ourselves as it is quite an unprepossessing frontage, though in an excellent location just by the flower market. The food was great, spicy, varied and all tasting fresh and we were able to distinguish the separate ingredients. The service was great, reasonable value for money and we left well pleased with our experience.

“Delicious Indonesian cuisine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

The food was excellent here. We had some Nasi Goreng (fried rice) and beef Rendang ( beef stir fry with rice) and they both tasted absolutely delicious. They had free WiFi and the toilets were clean and fresh.

It was a bit pricey though but no complaints on the food. Worth the price!

“Close Quarters Rijsttafel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Very busy little restaurant on the Flower Market. Good few Rijsttafel to choose from and the staff are adept at negotiating a very tightly packed set of tables which are often fully occupied. Nice spicy dishes (watch out for the beef dish) which will balance precariously wherever there is room. Service is quick and efficient and the staff are fast but pleasant.
