Cozy, small restaurant in a quiet part of town where locals eat Indonesian food as it is supposed to be - in particular the traditional "rijsttafel" (a table full of small dishes showcasing a large selection of various food items/dishes). Alsoo the single dishes are wonderful and rather large. Price is on the lower side compared to other Indonesian restaurants.... More

Very small place and it was packed for dinner when I was there. I am new to Indonesian cuisine - ordered the grille pork chops and some side veggies with spicy fried rice. The food was great - reminded me of Vietnamese marinade pork chops. Was a bit disappointed in the size - three small ribs with almost no meat... More

The rijstafel (rice table) for two is delicious and excellent value. Easily one of the best we have experienced. The staff are very friendly and attentive and if you get stuck with understanding anything on the menu they will help you out. A tip though - if you don't know where you are going, check out the location on Google... More

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

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.

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.
