Not the best restaurant or the nicest food, however the food was very good and tasted great. We turned up Sunday 7pm and they managed to fit us in on the high chairs which was brilliant. Our waiter was very helpful and the service was good. I'd recommend to friends. I found it expensive but it seems that anywhere in the dam is expensive

We had a fantastic rijsttafel. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The wine list works well with the menu (the guwerz was a treat). We will be back!

Not the world's greatest restaurant by any stretch. Service is good, not great. It's comfortable but not wonderful. Food is very good not excellent. Prices are relatively high for what you get. Overall a vg rating not more. Spots of excellence (BEEF CURRIES) & SOME ho hum offerings in the 'rice table'. Fish was overdone and doughy...Rice was below par.. It's a slightly crowded space. Servers are friendly and on the ball, but not exceptional. we reserved...then got lost in the 'system'? a qualified recommendation & would return for a second chance

I was unsure about Indonesian food after a greasy introduction (also in Amsterdam) some years ago so it was a real delight and surprise to learn just how good it can be at Blauw.
The rice table is the obvious choice for the inexperienced Indonesian diner - I suggest one between two with a couple of extra side dishes such as prawn satay... this gets around the ten euro surcharge for a shared order whilst adding a delicious extra to the large group of goodies you have to look forward to.
Super value...
We will certainly go again when next visiting the city.
