Was on a business trip and looked for a restaurant for dinner following advice of TripAdvisor. The waiters were always on top of it and very friendly The food was very tasty, but unfortunately not very warm. A nice place to go if you would like to taste exotic food

This place was a surprise, the atmosphere inside is very typical, staff are very funny and friendly, and the food is delicious... The price is not bad, and portions are quite big. Is a good place to join a big group of friends or for a romantic dinner with someone special.

Nice place but the service could have been faster. I was on my own so felt like I was forgotten a little bit . The different meat dishes were very interesting though!

The place is usually packed, so get in there in before the shops close or make a reservation. Ignore the buffet and just sit down and order one of the many great Indonesian rice tables on the menu. My last visit here I sat down with 3 friends from out of town and had a great time. Friendly waiters &... More

Buffet setup was 2 entrees (soup and sateh) for which we had to wait 20 min each, after which we were allowed to go for the buffet. During the 90 minutes we were there, we were asked nearly ten times if we wanted to drink something. Not a relaxed atmosphere at all and food was mediocre. There are much better... More

You can’t go to Netherlands and not eat Indonesian. Batavia was a good choice. It was a 10 minute walk from our B&B. We split an appetizer, had 2 drinks and ordered rice main courses (€50).

We decided for this place as it was ranking 2 in Arnhem. We were welcomed by friendly staff and ordered a 5 course meal for 3 people. The appetizers were not up to expectation at all. Spring rolls were very tough. The main dishes were ok but noting special. Doubt I will return
