We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. We dined a few days ago and had a ricetable. It was out of this world. We have never eaten such delicious Indonesian meal before and will definitely come back when we are in Arnhem. The staff are friendly and attentive. Everything was perfect.

We thought the service could be improved. More gentle and more "customer is always right". We ordered "lontong cap go meh" and their version is pretty far from what Indonesian would expect. The nasi goreng and satay is great though.

Followed the Tripadvisor recommendation and tried this restaurant... not disappointed. The Satay Grill was excellent with more than enough to eat for one!

When we go to the Netherlands we always go for a Indonesian meal if we can. Found Batavia 100 metres from our hotel, and as it was Sunday decided on the buffet. All the items tasted fantastic, our favourite being a beef rendang. We were spoilt for choice- there are loads of different dishes, including salads, rice and mains. If... More

Very nice manager; gave us a very welcome feeling. Also our two children were more then welcome. This is a big plus. The service is sometimes a bit Indonesian too; slightly chaotic and slow. We had a rijsttafel.....The food was OK, but not special. Considering the low price, I would say that price/quality is good. The interior of the restaurant... More

This restaurant is very close to the Arnhem central station. We've visited this restaurant twice and both the times the food were very tasty. The owner was really friendly and even recommended which dish night suit to our taste bud. The only set back was the slow service. I'd highly recommend this restaurant based on the taste.

I am an experienced journalist with a love of dining, although I am, I admit, less than a gourmet. I first tasted and fell in love with, Dutch-Indonesian cooking decades ago. I and my wife, who does know fine cuisine, enjoyed this restaurant. The service of a stylish and tasty vegetarian rijsttafel, by a Javanese woman, in this well-appointed, clean... More
