We were lucky to get in without having to queue, and I suspect that at peak times there is often a long line waiting to get in. Not much choice here but if you have the rijsttafel you simply have to give way to the...More

A lovely Indonesian food place, a set menu for €18 or €18.50 depending if you eat meat. Plenty of flavours and we had the vegetarian set with tofu which was great. Such rich flavours of lemongrass, coconut and peanut. The lady who served was very...More

Went to dinner with colleagues. We had a ”traditional menu”, one after another a bowl of indonesian delicious specialties was carried to our table. Very friendly and professional service.

We went to Kartika our first night in Amsterdam. It was a rainy Wednesday night, and the restaurant was not crowded at all. We got the traditional meal, which is not just meats, but also some veg dishes as well. It was all very good,...More

This restaurant came highly recommended from a friend. Full of expectations, we popped in and while still standing at the door, we were bombarded by a list of questions and impolite orders: “ How many of you?” “Only set menu: do you want classic or...More

We went to Kartika during the really hot (ie, record heat wave) period. So, with no climate control it was beastly hot but the service was attentive and food was excellent. The website is a bit confusing (do they take reservations or not?) so we...More

We were strolling by with another couple and they happened to have a table, what luck for us! Fixed menu with meat or vegan options- can't comment on the vegan option but the carnivore option was very tasty with medium heat. Yum!

The restaurant was short handed and had to open for dinner a few minutes late, which was no big deal for us because we weren’t in a hurry. Went and had a drink somewhere and came back, and the server (who I believe is the...More
