I had been to Indonesia in the eighties of last century. Once you've tasted the Indonesian kitchen you know it is a far cry from what is served in the traditional "Chinese-Indonesian" restaurants of which variety there are so very many in the Netherlands. It...IS a part of our heritage, the Indonesian archipelago having been under Dutch colonial regime for so long. The country now is an extremely attractive tourist destination with countless local varieties of the traditional Indonesian kitchen to suit the most demanding of tastebuds.
The many hundreds of popular restaurants run by mostly Chinese owners cater for the simple everyday cuisine for Dutchmen in the shape of take away restaurants or even "eat-in" restaurants. Not anyting Indonesian at all though.
Every now and then one finds a little gem like this recently opened restaurant, a truly Indonesian kitchen serving us the traditional dishes we know (for those who have been there)!
Dutch influence comes in the shape of the "Rijsttafel", an amazing array of little dishes with just about everything the Indonesian kitchen has to offer. This was arrived upon by the Dutch "colonials" who couldn't decide on what particular dish to choose and ordered "a bit of everything" from the kitchen. Order this "Rice table" and you will be surrounded with an amazing choice of meat, stews, skewers, satay, vegetables in sweet - sour dressings and the rice is just the basis of it all. Rice table really is the wrong name as rice certainly isn't the most important ingredient. White rice, fried rice, yellow (saffron) rice, it's all there. Bali Baru, (New Bali). The Lam family have a lot of experience as they've run a similar restaurant somewhere else before but wished for a new experience. Speak a few words of Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian) and feel at home in Indonesia. The smell and taste of the Indonesian kitchen can be found in Roosendaal in this jolly nice restaurant. Selamat Makan!More
We took both the hot and the mild Indonesian rice table and all dishes were authentic and delicious. Together with Bintang beer It was very enjoyable and we left having eaten slightly too much. Price quality ratio was good and we will definitely add this...restaurant to our favourites and visit again soon. Such a joy having a good Indonesian restaurant in your home town!More
This restaurant situated at the far end of the Market Square. The interior design in this place is cool and niche!!
Here is like Mom's kitchen served with tender love! The satay and the sauce was to die for!
The quality and quantity of the...food is just EXCELLENT. I would recommend to anyone anytime!!More
Not a bad restaurant, food is ok.
Just nothing special or exceptional, only your basic Indonesian food. Decoration ... effort was put in but the restaurant feels cold and the background music is unfitting. Service is friendly but slightly unprofessional.
Overall, looking at other restaurants...in the area, go here if you really really want indonesian food. Otherwise, go somewhere else.More
"You know that you are in good hands when the staff knows you need something before you do so yourself and caters for it in an unobtrusive way"
Thats exactly whats I experienced here. The staff was very polite and fast. I would strongly recommend...this place. Especially for business travellers who want good food, but don't like to look at the ceiling for an hour before getting it :)More
