“Good food at a fair price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We went to this restaurant twice in June 2013 and liked it very much. The wait staff is friendly and very helpful with making choices. It makes for a great change of diet from the other Dutch and French food in Amsterdam. The fish tended to be a little dry from the frying. The pork and chicken, however, were excellent. Our experience with the beer and wine menu was better than the cocktails made by the bar.

“Won't recommend”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

The outlook of the restaurant is okay. However, I would give a thumb down for the food. May be I am a Malaysian, and had a very high expectation toward the Indonesian food, as we are neighbors. The fish served was not fresh, the curry served were cold. Meats, some were okay but some seems like some overdue meats, very hard to chew and not fresh. Fried toufu, taste like expire. To me, the food was not spicy enough. Rice was okay. I won't recommend this restaurant.Beside all the negative comments, I have to give credits to their friendliness in services.

“Good Lunch Option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We wanted to try an Indonesian "rice table" meal for lunch and this restaurant was the only option. All others were only open for dinner.

Service was prompt and efficient. Food was good. However, the lunch portions are smaller. We had heard that two orders would be enough for three people. We were a party of four and considered three orders, but we went for four and glad that we did.

I don't know how authentic the food was, but it was good and we all enjoyed it.

“Poor options for vegetarians”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This place is very popular and always fully booked. Reservations recommended. I wanted a veggie meal but the vegetarian Nasi Rames was nothing exciting. I guess for people who love meat this is a good place, my friends were very enthusiastic.

“Good choice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Food is good & not too expensive. Located in good location, only few minute from shopping areas, flower market, damn square. It's very busy, recommend to reserve table in advance.
