If you want to have a touch of Indonesia and true Indonesian food this restaurant is a must......Its like being in Batavia (in the restaurant) and only 5 minutes walking from the fantastic new Railway and Bus Station. Good food; nice music, nice waitresses....what more can one ask for.

Well, we liked it. Our kids didn't find anything they liked, but I am not sure whether I can blame the restaurant - our kidsare like that... Anyway, we had a nice dinner, what I would complain about is the ratherstraightforward service and the appearance of the food. I have no idea of Dutch price levels, but it seemed on... More

Located near to the station and close to a variety of bars we visited this restaurant to sample Indonesian food. Three of our party (of four) had not eaten at an Indonesian restaurant before. We were welcomed and were able to book a table and return later to eat. Our waitress assisted us in choosing a banquet menu with starters,... More

Being not very familiar with Indonesian food this restaurant was a great find. We had a rijstafel and must say it was delicious. The service was great and very attentive.

Arnhem is not noted as a foodie destination, but if you find yourself there for an evening you can't do much better than Batavia. Very close to the station, Batavia offers some of the best Indonesian food i have had in the Netherlands, and I have had a lot. Well worth a visit, but make sure to book. It is... More

During my 3 week stay in Arnhem, there were only two restaurants which I alternated for dinner everyday. One was Batavia and the other was an Indian restaurant. Prior to tasting Indonesian cuisine at Batavia, I had no idea how Indonesian food tasted. I had arrived late from Amsterdam by train and barely had 30 minutes to check-in to my... More

Not quite a 4, but it would be unfair to rate it 3. Positives: Tasty food (Sate Bali to start, Spicy noodles for main). Nice white wine. Good beer. Negatives: Service was slow, especially the wait for the main course. Decor:kitsch. Reasonable value for money.
