An almost endless supply of interesting and varied dishes from one of the best Indonesian restaurants in town.

“The Rijstafel is a must!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

I have been eating here for 30 years or more. It hasn't changed in all that time which is a very good thing. The Rijstafel is a variety of indonesian dishes (vegetarian option easily catered for) served all together. Best eaten with beer, in my opinion. Good food, good atmosphere and reasonable price - what more can you ask for? I go there every time I'm in Amsterdam. They also provided a wonderful cake for my daughter's birthday and sang to her!

“Spicy Lunch”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

After an exhausting canal tour we stumbled upon this restaurant which turned out to be a real treat, very friendly service and delicious food. The rendang was the best, so good we ordered an extra portion.

“Still the best Indonesian in Amsterdam.”
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

Try it all. It's all good. The rice table is for the hungry only. Although make sure you book it gets crammed every night.
