wonderful friendly staff that cater to your every need. We had the Nasi Goreng which was displayed in lovely straw bowels making the experience quite authentic. The food was incredible. Right sized portions and good pricing.

I ate vegetable dishes here, which were nice enough, but I think I'd have to try the famous rice table if I went back (which it seems you can't do as a solo diner).

I recommend to do your booking in time. The service is good, staff is nice and polite. Food is tasty, not dissapointing and the price is acceptable, but the food is not very impresive.

Loved this place, such wonderful flavours and spices on a great variety of dishes. We opted for a pre-selected range of dishes excluding fish and were treated to a lovely mix of plates of vegetarian and beef served in different styles. Definitely a place to come back to. Very busy as it was Friday evening.

Indonesian restaurant, everybody was eating ricetable(risstafel). Very polite staff, explaining everything. We went with no reservation, but they were happy to find a table for as. Better to drink a beer, wine was not the best. Reasonable prices, ricetable for two, two soups, three glasses of wine, tap water, cost 60€.

This place needs to be reserved or else you won't normally find a place to sit. That already speaks volume about how popular it is. Since we were on a tight schedule, we couldn't book and missed out on a full course dinner. Instead we had to go for a takeaway. The menu was limited for that option. Nevertheless it... More

I am visiting Amsterdam and decided to check out this place for the love of Indonesian Cuisine. It was boxing day ( dec 26th), a relatively quiet period in the town. We decided to make reservation for dinner and called them at at around 6pm requesting to make reservation. The man who answered the phone enquired what time we needed... More

Called and booked a table and was very glad we did. Staff recommended the set menu and it was the best meal we had in Amsterdam. Loads of different curries and flavours and even some guidance of what order to eat them in. If I visit Amsterdam again I will certainly return to try more Indonesian food. Every one in... More
