Enjoyed with my partner and a friend two delicious rijsttafels at this small restaurant. If you want an authentic, high-quality, and resonably priced Indonesian dinner, don't look any further!

The hosts were really friendly, the homemade Indonesian food was good (the ayam rica-rica is not too spicy as well!) I had come over twice during my stay & would definitely come again in my next visit. I'd recommend you to try the Javanese omelette if you're visiting!

This is most likely the best Indonesian restaurant in Amsterdam. It is a very small restaurant, with a simple decor. But don't let that fool you. The food is wonderful: all made with very fresh ingredients and spices. I have been to Indonesia often and eating here is like being back, but then cleaner. The staff is charming and helpful....

This place was quiet when we first arrived but filled up steadily throughout our meal. The server was friendly and helpful and was very attentive to all of the tables. The food was delicious and the portions were large: we couldn't finish our meals! This restaurant is worth checking out!

Somewhere between a cafe and a restaurant. We only wanted rijstafel - a typical Indonesian dish. Two of had the veggie version, two the meat version. Some nice dishes amongst them. Not too spicy. Plenty to eat.

On a recent visit to Amsterdam a group of five of us went to this little restaurant, with one locally living Indonesian person. None of us had been before. I'll be visiting again. The place is small, so I'd recommend booking. We went on a Saturday night(with a reservation) and the place was full, not difficult as it's quite small,... More

While walking around Amsterdam, a friend and I stumbled upon this quaint Indonesian restaurant. Very pleasant atmosphere. Seems like it might be a family run business. Service was great and the food was very good. When you order a rijsttaffel you get a myriad of small dishes, all very tasty. Good value for money. I would go back to dine... More

Had better food else where but what was a major bugbear was that they don't take credit or debit cards ? So after the meal I had to go find a cash point as I don't always carry cash ...... VERY DISSAPOINTED not coming back in a hurry for business or pleasure

Rice table but aslo the other dishes are 50% overpriced. The food is oke. Ambiance is very average. I think I can find better Indonesian restaurants in Amsterdam for less.
