We ate here tonight but weren't too impressed. The food arrived lukewarm and the burner trays underneath didn't work so it got steadily colder. There was no wine list because the restaurant is in the process of changing from one to the other. The wine came opened (uncorked) although we bought a bottle. The food was all too sweet as well as not being warm enough. The service was slow and we sat with empty plates for nearly 15 minutes.

The waitress cleaned a table next to us and one behind with a stinky spray which smelled horrible and made us cough. The tables are too close together and it's really noisy. Also it is very dark with poor lighting, one strong light above each table.

There was no choice of dessert apart from ice cream or one kind of pre-made cake. The bill was 70 euros for 2 people. The owner did listen to our complaints and offer us a free drink but it was still hugely disappointing. I expect if we went back in a couple months it would be just as bad. I wouldn't go back. This is my honest review.

I would say that this restaurant has a kinda secret design, everything is in dark colors. Every table is enlightened with a lamp above it, and that creates a feeling of being separated from everything around.
It was my first time when I tried Indonesian dish. And I liked it. Those, who do not eat meat, you may freely visit this restaurant, they have dishes for vegetarians as well.

Many times we visited the lovely restaurant. Good food in a warm decoration. Try the Indonesian Rijsttafel!

The Singaradja is a very good Indonesian restaurant a bit outside the city center of Breda (around a 15-20 minute walk from the city center). The place is more stylish than the average Indonesian restaurant with mainly black furniture and fairly 'clean' design. The place is however freezing cold - that was actually the main objection everyone in our group had. It seems to be the case almost everywhere in the restaurant so do bring some extra clothes to wear when eating.

We were a group of four and got both the small and the large rice rijsttafel (literal translation would be rice table - sort of a sample menu consisting of several smaller dishes). Plenty of food and almost all of it very good. Service was friendly and they did not all mind explaining what was served. There was some dessert (fried banana) served with one of the rijsttafels but it should really have been served a bit later as it did not benefit from being cold.

The selection of beer and wine could really have been better but to be a restaurant in the Netherlands the selection was still as expected. Would definitely visit again but probably not in winter (as it is too cold indoors).
