This is a small restaurant, tables a bit close together, and the tables are really too small for rijsttafel with its multiple dishes. The two young servers did a great job. They were both pleasant and friendly and the dishes came out quickly. It was about 30 euros per person for the large rijsttafel, pretty standard in Amsterdam. No draft... More

We found the food at this restaurant to be very tasty. The owner is a real live wire and we liked the place so much we went back for a second time. The restaurant was always crowded but we were able to "share" a table with another couple.

We are at this wonderful restaurant the same day we arrived on an international flight. What a great introduction to Amsterdam! Luckily we made reservations for 9 pm (Tuesday) which allowed us to get seated immediately without a wait. The 3 of us ordered Ramayana which came with about 11 different dishes to accompany the rice. We loved everything --... More

We arrived without reservations and had a short wait before being seated. We were told that only their set menus would be available at that time which was fine because that was what we wanted to order anyway. We thoroughly enjoyed the various foods and flavours that was offered. Service was very attentive and friendly. We would highly recommend Kartika... More

My husband and I decided to try Kartika because of the good reviews. We were not disappointed. We ordered the rice table for 2 and loved every dish! they were very friendly and accommodating. The place is small so you may have to wait for a table, but it's definitely worth it! Side note, our clothes/coats smelled like food for... More

This restaurant was highly recommended and it lived up to it. We had the Shintaya which was a sampling of about 18 vegetarian dishes served with steamed white rice. We thought it might be too much but it was perfect. Each item was delicious, neither mild nor too spicy. It's a small place so reservations are highly recommended. Priced reasonably.

Visited on a Friday night without a reservation but luckily manged to get a table. The place only has about 40 seats and as others have said, you will be expected to share a table with others at busy times but that adds to the ambience of the place. Shared a ristafel with my wife. There was so much food.... More

Kartika was recommended to us by a local foodie - delicious meal; highlights were the Nasi Goreng and the Rendang beef, scrumptious!. The hosts were lovely; welcoming, informative and attentive. Would highly recommend a visit whilst in Amsterdam.

The restaurant is small booking is recommended. Tables are always for 4 if you are going with your boyfriend or girlfriend you might have to share the table with 2 other people , but this could also nice of you're lucky with your neighbors . The owner and other staff are very friendly and always explain the food before serving.... More
