For a couple of years this is my favorite Indonesian restaurant. A lot of them in Amsterdam are overpriced and/or serve disappointing food. Sampurna is none of this. They offer different Rice Tables (combination of a lot of different delicacies: meat, fish, chicken, veggies and nice condiments) or in a simpler version with everything on one plate, such as Nasi...

No matter what, if you're in Amsterdam every local or traveller will tell you the same, that you must try Indonesian food before you leave town. That's what my wife and I did as well and it was really good. We travelled to Amsterdam in July to my 30th BDay to visit "party town" where everyone always happy :) We... More

Different tastes, colors, textures, temperatures. All delicious. What a delightful culinary experience. We enjoyed it so much we returned. The dishes are all paired with lovely compliments and condiments. Mmmmm.

Fabulous: delicious and really interesting food (go for one of the set menus), good service, decent wine list, and an atmosphere conducive to good conversation (if there was music, it was so subtle that I don't remember it). Thoroughly recommended, especially for something a little bit different.

So delicious we came here twice, after not getting in the first time we tried (Saturday night--should have had a reservation). I was moved nearly to tears by the tenderness of a morsel of the beef satay! Many delicious flavors that were hitherto unknown to me. Yum!

As someone having lived in Indonesia for several years, this is one of my favorite cuisines. I know and understand the flavors and am always looking for great places to try out authentic food. Sampurna was recommended by a friend living in Amsterdam and so I decided to check this place for lunch. We were 4 of us and got... More

I have given this restaurant three chances and I have to say I find it fair. I always get the sampler dish and the entrees are covered in the same sauce and the sauce is all you can really taste. The food is rushed and considering this restaurant is recommended in a lot of guide books....I can not figure out... More
