“Great Indonesian restaurant”

Went there and had the Indonesian rijsttafel tasting menu, good value, good service, but make sure you make a reservation can be very popular.

“Excellent Indonesian Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Max offered us a perfect introduction to Indonesian cuisine with their special "sampler" menu. Delicious! This informal, lively restaurant is not for the hard of hearing unless they want to eat great food and not converse. The staff was attentive and friendly.

“anniversary dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary with a weekend in Amsterdam and chose this restaurant due to the good reviews on Trip Advisor. The menu was interesting, the food was well presented and tasty and the service was excellent. It was a really good experience and we would revisit this restaurant on a future visit to Amsterdam

“Favourite restaurant in Amsterdam ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

This is our second visit to Max, and once again we were not disappointed!
We didn't have a reservation but we arrived early to avoid missing out as we guessed they would be fully booked on a Saturday evening.
Everything about this restaurant is first class.
Great atmosphere and quirky decor.
The food was amazing, fresh, tasty and presented beautifully. Each course was mouth watering deliciously scrumptious...
We shared a bottle of Klenine Zalze Chardonnay which complimented the food very well...
The staff are very friendly, attentive and prompt with their service...
I would definitely reccomend this fabulous restaurant

“Interesting food, well designed space”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

Came in with a friend on a last minute whim and was very happy they managed to accomodate us. I really enjoyed the design of the space - very modern yet still modest. The food was interesting, yet I think that the chef actually reserved himself a bit in certain dishes from going all the way in terms of seasoning and creativness. Obviously theres a lot of innovative talent in the kitchen and they should let themselves run wild. On the service side - typical Amsterdam professional, no more, no less. I would easily recommend this place to anyone seeking an unusual asian fusion experience.
