We visited having not booked. We arrived and was told a table could be free for the next hour and half. We had the rijsttafel (rice dishes) Mahabharata for 2 people. Oh my life it was so delicious. Everything was explained and each dish tasted so unique. The service was really personable and friendly. Glasses were constantly topped up. Couldn't... More

We came for a dinner the day of our arrival, and came back for the rijsttafel two days later (the waiter remembered our names!) Very efficient service, excellent food, nice place even when it's crowded.

I don't usually write reviews unless I am particularly unimpressed or really have a faultless experience with a place. This was the latter. 6am Monday evening and the place was already half full. As it was my first time in Amsterdam I thought I'd have a stroll around to see what else there was to offer and decided to come... More

We really enjoyed dining at this restaurant - very friendly staff and nice cosy environment. The Indonesian food was great too and the restaurant offers a variety of dishes to taste from. The staff were also very helpful on recommending the best options and explaining what the dishes are. It was also a nice gesture that one of the waiters... More

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.
