Having tried the best rated Indonesian restaurant in Amsterdam and being rather disappointed we decided to try our luck again this time in Sneek. A great decision! Seated with a drink while our table was being set outside, service was prompt and very friendly and relaxed. Again the menu was only in Dutch but a neighbour translated it for us... More

We love the Indonesian-Eastern cuisine, and the restaurant Klein Java did not disappoint us. All dishes were very good, plentiful, scents and tastes amazing, just like we wanted!

On the way from Arnhem to Drachten, via boat. Food was great, with a great variety of flavour. There was also a great service.

This restaurant has been in this location for many years and well established. They are proud to use the authentic way of cooking with only fresh and original ingredients. Well advised to pay a visit!

It's Saturday night and we left our riverboat cruise in Sneek, Friesland, northern Netherlands, in search of either a pancake house or an Indonesian restaurant with a rijstaffel. The locals said there wasn't a pannekoeken but there was an Indonesian called Klein Java. One couple were walking that way and escorted us. I arrived via a small mobility scooter at... More

Visited this restaurant with a group of 5 and having lived 10 years in Indonesia,I was hoping for authentic flavours. They did not let me down. Obviously the spicy dishes were not as spicy as they should be, but i expect that when catering to the general European taste that would be unavoidable. Personally I prefer more spice. Service was...

Judging from all the good reviews we visited Klein Java with 3 people. We chose the rice table Bandung, with meat and 3 types of Satay. It took a while before the dishes came. As a starter were given a small Indian loempia: delicious to taste. On the menu is indicated that you should be in a hurry at Klein... More

Review: Looking fine at the frond-view, the interior and restaurant setting is a bit basic and 'easy-done'. Staff is friendly but not always very attentive. Food is taste and divers if you order one of the menu/arrangements. The different sorts & tasts of dishes are served on a warmer. Product-quality is rather average. Housewines are ok. Negatives: Interior/atmosfeer is not... More

Delicious, delicately flavoured dishes. Friendly staff. Not pricy. The culinary highlight of our visit to Friesland.
