What a great find. A small eclectic cafe/restaurant with an Indonesian menu. Unpretentious and straight forward. Great flavours and good staff. Highly recommended for a good well priced meal with old friends.

This is the best Indonesian food we have had outside Indonesia. Small menu makes it easy to choose and everything was well presented and very tasty. We went on a busy Sunday evening so the service was slow. The beers were pricey but it is...More

Cafe Kadijk was amazing. Authentic, friendly and delicious! They were knowledgeable on gluten free, too. Full of flavour and absolutely scrumptious! A 'MUST' if you're in Amsterdam!

Had dinner here with a few colleagues during a business trip to Amsterdam. Both the food, the atmosphere and the staff made us return for dinner the next day. Try the Indonesian plate, it is amazing. A place really worth a try or two!

Great food, service a little on the slow side; the beef Rendang was delicious and nicely presented. Well worth a visit.

We had a delightful meal in this small cafe. We ended up there based on other reviews and because it was past 10pm on a Tuesday night and we were having a hard time finding a restaurant that still had its kitchen open. We were...More
