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

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
