We were excited to try an Indonesian Rice Table while in Amsterdam and this place came highly recommended. The food was good. The service was quite offputting. We arrived 56 minutes before their website says they stop serving (10:30pm). But, they almost didn't let us...More

The food was great, except for one or two dishes.I would have liked some flexibility for allergies and intollerancies but I understand that it's a very small business.Just reduce the price for beverages and 5 stars are yours

After learning about pre ordering from 2 types of rice tables, all was superior. Each item was prepared exquisitely and served with pride. Two wonderful waiters and a fantastic culinary experience.

Our hosts suggested that we eat at Kartika. Going back hundreds of years Dutch traders exploring the world brought back exotic spices from the Spice Islands (Indonesia). Ever since there has been a connection between the Netherlands and Indonesia. The proprietor doesn't speak English very...More

The rijsttafel, although many dishes, is very well proportioned - it is not too much food, even for a light eater. You usually order to the number of people who want to eat and they serve up a number of small dishes which... More
