As first timers in the Hague, we were told to definitely try out Indonesian food. Following a tip from our concierge, who happens to be married to an Indonesian, we went to Didong with very little expectations, and were pleasantly surprised by the super tasty food. Would come back in the future for sure.

When in The Hague, eat Indisch (Indonesian)! There's plenty great to try. Definitely top 5 is Didong. Cook used to be at Kantjil's and if that's not saying anything, the food will. We had a "rijsttafel", chicken, port, lamb, beef & several vegetable dishes. Been tasting this for lots of decades and hey, what they serve here is great. Better... More

Great place to eat excellent indonesian food. Wide range of dishes and the sevice is good too. Closed on Tuesday. Usually this place is packed, so best make a reservation ahead. Parking space is limited.

One of the best Indonesian restaurants in the Hague. The food is very good. If you want to try out multiple Indonesian dishes I would recommended getting the rice table(rijsttafel) were you get a table full of small dishes. The ambiance is not the kitschy traditional style, but more of a modern look. Since it's cosy it still has a... More

One of those well hidden places where you get great Indonesian food at very affordable prices. The greatest thing is that the tables are not crammed. Try the nasi goreng Didong. You won't be disappointed.

I wanted to keep having those dishes full of intense flavours, very well cooked, with combinations of sweet and spicy. Incredible meal, we loved everything we had: we started with the dadar isi egg "pancake" filled with minced meat, then we had the catfish turmeric in coconut sauce and the chicken in spicy sauce, and a couple of side dishes....

After being here several times I noticed that each time the quality was very good. No matter what you order everything is fresh and has its unique taste. So, if you are looking for some fine Indonesian food pass by at this nice small restaurant where the service is still on a personal level !

Dingdong is certainly the effort worth to visit and enjoy a superb originally spiced Indonesian meal. No native decoration, but that is found back in the delicious taste and quality of the food. Fresh meat and vegetables excellently spiced and prepared in accordance to the origins of Indonesian cuisine. Highly recommended. - Reservation advised.

Description
Indonesian restaurant Didong is located in the centre of Duinoord. The name Didong means 'stubborn'. On the one hand this was chosen for its pleasant sound and on the other to give a 'stubborn' and contemporary twist to the business. The owners of Didong gained their knowledge of the Indonesian cuisine in famous restaurant Kantjil in Prinsestraat and later at Dua in Scheveningen. The interior at Didong is simple and atmospheric and does not have traditional elements, such as Wajongpoppen.

Cuisine
The cuisine at restaurant Didong has a refreshing and contemporary character and includes a creative, personal and innovative perspective on the authentic, spicy Indonesian cuisine. Instead of overcooked vegetables on table warmers, crispy vegetables are served directly on side dishes. The suppliers and the origins of the produce are selected with care. For example, the roast Babi Pangang originates from free-range Livar pigs from Limburg. In addition to the rice tables and individual dishes, Didong also has speciality dishes on the menu. They change regularly and reflect the contemporary view of the traditional Indonesian cuisine. Takeaway dishes are also available.
