Did not need reservations, but we were early (5 pm on Friday). Later on it got busier and it might be good to reserve your table if you are with a larger group or if you would like to eat later in the evening. Ordered lots of small dishes. Menu has good selection: bit of everything: meat, fish, vegetarian; both... More

We all got the rice table, which offers a lot of different small dishes. Makes it easy to sample many things. Overall the food was definitely nice, and the staff was friendly. 2 small remarks: - A lot of the dishes were relatively spicy. They didn't warn of this / ask how spicy to make the dishes. - It's not... More

I had a lovely evening here. We were welcomed by the owner (I believe) and he had a friendly approach. The food was great as we had a few Indonesian dishes that the owner recommended. I will definitely return there again when I'm in town!

I frequently eat here for business, and it has become my favorite place in Den Bosch. The food is very tasty and not very expensive, also the staff is very friendly and helpful. Only pitfall is that you easily order too much, since they offer a varied and interesting menu, and portions are big.

We stopped here on our first night in Den Bosch. The staff were very attentive and helpful. The "seasonal" beer was an interesting rose red beer. Too sweet for my taste but entertaining in small measures. The Indonesian food was well presented but somewhat lacking in spicy flavours. It was cooked well but many of the meats tasted the same....

We went to the restaurant the locals recommended for the best ricestaffel (spelling?) and they were certainly right. We had an enormous variety and quantity of Indonesian specialties we could not have had anywhere else, even in our home town of New York City. And it was all delicious. The restaurant was clearly popular and we would recommend it for... More

Staff were quite welcoming but the rijstafel wasn't as interesting as we'd hoped. Lots of dishes, but few standouts. Most of the clientele were local.

Very mediocre Rijsttafel. Everything tasted the same, the rice was way overcooked.A disappointment. Good service though.

Good food ( and lots of it) in this sometimgs quiet restaurant. This restaurant may look expensive sometimes. But it's not actually (I can't understand why it's not always packed). - a good address for Indonesian food, good & friendly service, and right in the center of town (close to the station and shops)

Thank Ed V
