The place is small so they often looked crowded from outside but usually there is some space. I tried nasi goreng kambing (fried rice with lamb/goat meat) which was served with emping and hot tea (typical Indonesian drink for any food). It was tasty and the service is satisfying.

The restaurant is small and doesn't take reservation but was able to get a table. It is in the centre of the city and is very affordable. The quality of the food is good and is traditional and freshly prepared. You are given good portions also. The owner is friendly and pleasant.

This is a small restaurant serving a limited menu of fantastic Indonesian food. The food is cooked fresh to order by a very friendly staff. The NASI GOERING and SATAY were very good and the sauce on the Satay was phenomenal. It is a rather small place and regrettably they have no liquor licience but well worth a visit all... More

First time trying Indo food outside of Indonesia and this place was pretty good. I had the Soto Ayam, flavors were all there but smaller than I anticipated. In Indo they always server you a giant bowl with rice. Here, it's more like a cup and rice was not included. The Nasi Goring was decent as well.

We both had the fried noodles with tomato and vegetables. Service was slow and food was nothing more than what seemed to be top ramen and veggies... 2 star for location.

Very pleasant small restaurant. Managed to sneak in before closing time and ordered the food. The menu is simple but Indonesian food is always simple. Either fried rice, noodles, vegetables or satay in various types of ingredients. I missed eating the sambal belachan, green and red chillis as well as the chilli sauce. Real Indonesian food requires chilli. For those... More

Went here from a recommendation from a friend. The food was ok but nothing to rave about. The service was rather rude and the waitress was short with us the entire time. Best thing on the menu was the coconut drink. The nasi goreng was a big let down and was dry fried rice.

The place is tiny and we didn't feel that the service was very good (at some point we thought we were see-through). After they finally took our order food and drinks came fairly quickly. Food is simple but tasty - however no "wow" effect.

Thank Sigipooh

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
