“An excellent Asian bistro in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

I went to this restaurant on a recent weekend trip to Amsterdam. We were looking for a place to have an Indonesian Rijsttafel, and the menu looked interesting and reasonably priced. It proved to be excellent, with friendly, efficient but unobtrusive service, and the food was really superb. The atmosphere was friendly as well. They serve all types of Asian food here, including Vietnamese.

The restaurant is close to the central station and open daily, and I recommend it strongly!
