Very nice restaurant. I was alone, so no Rijsttafel. Had baked fish, instead. It was accompanied by quite a few small dishes, so it felt like the Indonesian experience I'm used to. Everything spiced just right (could have had just a tad more heat, if anything.) Delicious. Looking around, all the other diner seemed quite engrossed in their meals; always... More

When in Amsterdam, I like to visit one of the Indonesian restaurants located there, though there seem to be fewer now than several years ago. One such restaurant which has been there for some time is the Sampurna, right by the flower market. We went without a reservation, but, though the restaurant was full on our arrival, they were able... More

Nice Indonesian food. The level of spiciness is just right for me but I think some might find the food too spicy. Went on a Sunday night, the place was v crowded so good to make a reservation if u have a large group.

This was my first Indonesian meal. Absolutely delicious. We did one of the sampling meals for our group. Everything was very tasty, except one particular meat dish. It was so spicy-hot that I literally could not eat it. I love spicy food, but this required a pint of water with each bite. We did one of the meat samplers with... More

Small friendly restaurang next to the flower market, very central location. We had the rijstafel and it was goo, but not exceptional, and a bit pricey. Possibly it's better to have just one dish.

I visited this restaurant one time, and as a vegetarian I did not have many options, and whatever was available was either too bland or too spicy. I barely managed finish my food. I hope not to visit again on my own.

Sampurna is located in the Flower Market area of Amsterdam. Friendly service that is extremely helpful in explaining and describing the menu. This was my first Indonesian experience and it did not disappoint. While I will say I would not call it fine dining it is more tapas (small dishes) meets Family style dining. I enjoyed sampling the many different... More

We had the rijsstafel a must to try in Amsterdam. A great mix of spicy meat and vegetable dishes with delicious sambals. Service was perfect. Can highly recommend it.

I went to this restaurant for a late lunch and found it almost empty. As a result, service was very prompt and friendly. The food was good and well spiced, but I found the beef a bit dry (the meat itself, not the dish as a whole). The salad that accompanied the meal with delicious. The atmosphere of the restaurant...
