“excellent indonesian cooking”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

we booked this rest. A week in advance. Booking is necessary espescially on W.E.
Near the rijksmuseum. Excellent rijstafel, which includes a huge quantity of dishes. Most a them absolutely delicious. Extremely friendly, quick and efficient service and nice atmosphere.
Family dinner with very young kids and they loved it too.

“Great Indo.”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Difficult to get into - reservations a must - for good reason !

Great Indonesian cuisine at a very good price.

Rijstaffel a MUST DO !

They serve a Gwertzraminer type of wine as the house White - which complements their cuisine so well.

“Decent Rijsttafel lunch”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Ate lunch here in October on the way to the Rijksmuseum which is a short block away. We talked the owner into serving a single order of Rijsttafel to the two of us for 30 eruos. This was plenty of food for us and despite the huge quantity of dishes everything arrived promptly.
The lunch was really very good and unique to us but at the same time there was an overall impression that the restaurant had prepared this meal so often that it lacked enthusiasm. In other words, a good restaurant with good food but nothing really special.
We had no trouble getting a table but we walked in the instant the restaurant opened for lunch and it was off-season. The service was friendly and efficient.

“Tummy Warmers”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Seemingly popular with the locals and curious tourists like us. Not new to Indonesian cuisine, Sama Sebo's food doesn't strike me as truly authentic. But the keropok was tasty and the sambal deliciously spicy! We sat at the bar, and were served presumably by the owners, who were very warm and friendly. Food rating overall - average with above average prices.

“Classic rijstaffel”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

If you like rijstaffel, this is the place. I first had it in this restaurant 27 years ago, and it is just as good as ever. Close to the Rijksmuseum. Be sure to book in advance.
