Cannot fault the food and friendliness of the staff. We had a taster menu, worth trying, especially if you have not eaten indonesian food before. Is spicy, but in a good way. Not suitable for people who only want a slight heat. Would recommend having beer not wine as it would lose out to spice. My only complaint is that... More

Very classy restaurant located near the floating flower market. Reservations are recommended. My meal came with 7 side dishes so the presentation is rather remarkable. Had a nice bottle of wine but nothing spectacular. Two bottles of wine and three large meals cost only E104.65 which was an amazing price. We all really enjoyed the food

We went here on our last night in Europe and were not disappointed. It was busy but we only had to wait 10 min for a table. The food was one of the best meals we had all trip.

Had a family lunch on a weekday. The food was excellent. Not your typical Babi Pangang, but authentic Indonesian fare. Will come back on my next trip to A'dam.

I was enticed by the TripAdvisor sticker on the door and we had an excellent meal the night before using this as a criterion. Unfortunately for us this experience was not a good one. The service from the get go was terrible - extremely rushed the set meal for two came out almost immediately and most of the dishes except... More

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.

Thank Jeremy T
