Fabulous family run restaurant and well worth the visit. Particularly tables in the garden out back - weather permitting! We had the Rijsttafel, which was excellent. My wife is Dutch Indonesian by descent and brought back fabulous memories for her. Also do take-away.

I stayed one night close by this restaurant and impressed by the reviews I decided to give it a try myself. I was not disappointed. Although it was early evening the restaurant was busy and there was a brisk take - away trade too. Staff were very friendly, the food came in good time and was very tasty, I would... More

I am so fortunate to have Betawi in my neighbourhood! Since many years I frequently enjoy their great dinners. I often bring friends along and there has been nobody who didn't love the food. The family that runs the restaurant is very kind and involved with their neighbours; they really know their guests. That, together with great food, really makes... More

We found this place because the hostel had their take out/delivery menu. Authentic Indonesian food at its best. Beautiful garden patio in the back. The ginger beer was delish on a hot day. We couldn't completely understand the menu and just ordered the seafood 3 course meal for 2. It ended up being 10 different dishes just for the main... More

We rode the #12 tram across town to eat at Betawi, and we'll do it again next time we're visiting Amsterdam. We didn't have a reservation, but we were lucky enough to get the last available table on a Saturday evening. This was my first rice table (rijsttafel) and I really enjoyed the various flavors. We were made to feel... More

A great place to eat, it's a family owned restaurant, far away from the touristy parts of Amsterdam. Decent food for a great price. It's also a popular place to eat for the Indo population of the Netherlands. The menu offers a great choice, the staff is friendly.

Was here 2 days ago with my friend in our last day vacation in AMS. All food still keep original taste from Indonesian food. The price is fairly for AMS n this is really the best Indonesian restaurant that I can found in this city. Fell like I'm eating in Indonesia when I'm been there. Hopefully can be there again...

This restaurant is not located in the touristy canal streets, so it is most of the times popular among locals. It serves tasty Indonesian cuisine and the people serving are friendly and always nice.The prices are similar to a fast food, so a dish will be under 10 euro.

Thank 10Viviana
