I've been traveling to Amsterdam for business purposes this week. At the end of long and rainy day I was hungry and find this lovely restaurant "Sampurna". I had a table for my own, texting to my daughter and waiting for the food to come and...The food was just great!!' Large portions, very tasty and generous. The sate with peanuts... More

A really tasty lunch. It's not cheap but it is worth every euro if you are after an authentic meal. The service was excellent.

We ate here because of the good reviews but were disappointed. Service was abrupt to the point of being rude; in fact, we felt that our server wanted us to finish quickly and leave. Indonesian cuisine can be very exotic but here, the dishes were uninspiring, and all tasted the same. A case in point, Balinese chicken and BBQ beef... More

We were given the seat in the window after reserving a table to celebrate a birthday. The rijsttafel was excellent and staff very friendly.

A smallish indonesian restaurant with great food and service. A choice of several different Rijstaffels as well as individual dishes. Located at the end of the Singel Flower Market. Appears popular with local Indonesians as well as Europeans, well worth a visit.

I was there for lunch with some friends. The place is very nice, the waiter was kind and very professional. The food was delicious, very similar to what I used to eat in Indonesia.

This restaurant is not large but is very friendly. The staff are very good. The rijsttafel is not as extensive as others but is of good quality. Well worth a visit.

We travel and like to eat and try different cuisines, so had to try the Indonesian mini plate meal. Service was pleasant but not overly attentive (I.e. Took order, named items delivered, got her attention for check) 30€ per person for 10 small plates--about 3 bites per plate and 3€ pp for non-alcoholic drinks. I really did not like anything...

We all wanted Indonesian food so we came across this restaurant by the flower market. The menu was varied but I wanted to try lots of things.. there was four hungry adults to feed. I ordered set menu but not the same set menu for all 4 of us so we would have a cross section of dishes.. Food arrived... More
