I read good things about this restaurant when deciding on a place for rijstafel. Unfortunatley, the food was only average, and the service was even worse. We arrived at the restaurant at around 7 p.m. on a Monday night, and waited 30 minutes for a table. That was fine, the problem was waiting another 20 minutes before anyone took our order for drinks and another 20 minutes thereafter to place our food order. So we finally ate 90 minutes after we arrived. Based on my observations we were the lucky ones. Other people waited even longer for a waiter to speak with them. Having lived in the Netherlands, I am use to slower service and waiving a waiter down to get service, but this was ridiculous. I don't know if the restaurant was understaffed on a Monday or if this was typical, but it definitely detracted from the dining experience. As for the rijstafel, the food was tasty, but not spectacular for 25 euro per person.
If you do want rijstafel, maybe try the place at lunch or happy hour when the prices are affordable and the restaurant is not as busy. Otherwise be prepared to wait or arrive at least 1 hour before your are hungry.
