Description: Restaurant Jun Indonesian Cuisine is a modern restaurant on the edge of the Amsterdam city centre and near the Jordaan area. Together with my team I prepare authentic Indonesian dishes and new dishes inspired by the Indonesian cuisine. On our menu, that we change every three months, are always some 'classics' such as soto ayam (the famous Indonesian chicken soup) and rendang (beef tenderloin in a Sumatran curry), but we also offer real Indonesian dishes that you don't find on the menu everywhere else. We have an interesting wine card with delicious wines that go very well with the dishes we serve.

“Best Indonesian Food in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Unlike so many Indonesian restaurants, Jun serves tasty dishes without drowning them in peanut flavoured gunk. Ingredients are fresh and of good quality. Atmosphere is a bit sterile but that is my only criticism

“Great Indonesia food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

Very good and tasty food. Especially the chicken, the beef and the fresh spring rolls. Nice little restaurant. Nice and friendly owner. Service a bit unprofessional but with a great smile. We will come back. Go here, you will not be disappointed!

“Worth seeking out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

We only had a few days in Amsterdam, and were keen to try a good Rijsttafel. The glowing reviews on Tripadvisor for Jun convinced us. We sent an email to reserve a table and got a quick response from Edy, the owner.

Edy and my husband bantered over how spicy the sambal that came with the shrimp crackers should be; the kitchen kept sending out spicier and spicier sambals until my husband declared Edy forfeit ! :) Edy is funny and amiable, and proud of his restaurant.

We decided to try the full Rijsttafel experience ('rice table 2' on the menu), which came with a choice of appetizers (soup or a spring roll), fragrant rice, seven dishes and pickled vegetables. It was delicious, and each dish was very different. There were sauced dishes and skewers, ranging from shrimp and fish to chicken, beef and lamb, each spiced and prepared differently. The dishes are fairly mild, but if you want to add some heat, you can drizzle more spicy sambal oelek on. Everything is prepared from fresh ingredients. The shrimp dish was superlative!

We also ordered Bintang beer, because if you're going to have Indonesian food, you should have Indonesian beer to wash it down!

We enjoyed our meal and were so full, we didn't have dessert, so we cannot comment on their sweets. We'll be back if we have a chance to visit Amsterdam again.

“Highly recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

I and my boyfriend enjoy Asian cuisine. We had a lovely dinner at this restaurant, we ordered rice table and were completely satisfied with our meal. And what is important for me - not tooooo spicy. I cannot eat very peppery meals, this was perfect!
