“Amazing choice and taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

I was taken here by a friend, which is in the west of Amsterdam. This place is quite outstanding in terms of both choice and taste all coming at a mid-range cost. There is also a large selection for vegetarians, with the menu being 10 pages long. The mackerel dishes were of an excellent quality and size for the price. There is also a range of beverages on top of the standard 'house pils'. The owner and waiter were both cheerful and jovial, and looked like they enjoyed working there which gave a nice relaxed ambience for a fully enjoyable meal.

“Great place.”

Been here two times now, once for dinning and one time for a celebration of a wedding. Good food and service. Great staff. And it has the authentic air of an Indonesonesian warung

“Great food outside touristic area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We choose this restaurant because close to our hotel and was a great find!!
Is a family business and everybody was very kind and helpful! we decided to take the tablerice special and the quantity and quality of the food was amazing!! Very tasty food! we didn't manage to finish everything and that was the only fail for the night!! :D
We had a table in the garden full of flowers, and at the end of the night we spent some time chatting with the staff....was a very nice atmosphere that remembered me Bali...
Good value for money, about 30€ pp for plenty of food and a beer but beware they don't take credit cards and the closest ATM is 10 min away....

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

A friend recommended we visit Betawi while in Amsterdam. To my surprise our apartment was only minutes away on foot. The restaurant itself was small and not must on atmosphere. It made up for this with a patient and friendly wait staff and wonderful food. The prices were reasonable. I managed to spend less than ?15. Definitely worth the trip.

“Lovely Family Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We all had a lovely dinner here.
We were a group of ten people and didn't have a reservation but the staff quickly put some tables together and accommodated us just splendidly.
We all ordered different dishes and really all of them were sooo super tasty.
from fish to beef dishes all made with love and care.

lovely staff too :)
