We went here for dinner while in Amsterdam and seriously the food was incredible! One of the next meals i have had in Europe. Great value for money, so much variety, very authentic & tasty! The waiters were lovely and explained everything to us. Super friendly and awesome place all round. Highly recommend!

We had just a short flight transit in Amsterdam and decided to eat Indonesian food. We are glad the we found this restaurant through TripAdvisor. The trip from the airport was only 25 minutes by taxi. We then arranged for the taxi to come back in 2 hours to take us back to the airport. The taxi cost about €40... More

Small restaurant serving the traditional Indonesian Rice-table. Everything was delicious- even my 7 and 12 year olds loved it. Make a reservation if you can- they fill up fast.

The restaurant was very busy the night I visited, and after waiting in line for a while, I was asked if I could share a table with someone - which I naturally agreed to. The waiter sat down with me and told me about the food and recommended a dish that would give me a taste of different kinds of... More

On the menu, you get to choose between 4 or 5 selections, each including around ten dishes. This way you get to really try the taste of Indonesian food and that's what I loved about the restaurant. Also the service is very good : nice, polite and helpful people, and quick to serve you. That being said and having been... More

The staff were very friendly and helped make a decision on what to order. We ordered one of the "sets" for 2 people. We had more than enough good food than we could finish. The waiter (owner?) explained each dish in the sample and we tried each one and really liked each. There is a vegetarian option, a "mix" of... More

We always go there for diner! Love the food, simple Indonesian but delicious! They are always very busy, so worth booking. They have nice tables outside which is quite good in the summer.
