Description: Indonesian restaurant Didong is located in the centre of Duinoord. The name Didong means 'stubborn'. On the one hand this was chosen for its pleasant sound and on the other to give a 'stubborn' and contemporary twist to the business. The owners of Didong gained their knowledge of the Indonesian cuisine in famous restaurant Kantjil in Prinsestraat and later at Dua in Scheveningen. The interior at Didong is simple and atmospheric and does not have traditional elements, such as Wajongpoppen. Cuisine The cuisine at restaurant Didong has a refreshing and contemporary character and includes a creative, personal and innovative perspective on the authentic, spicy Indonesian cuisine. Instead of overcooked vegetables on table warmers, crispy vegetables are served directly on side dishes. The suppliers and the origins of the produce are selected with care. For example, the roast Babi Pangang originates from free-range Livar pigs from Limburg. In addition to the rice tables and individual dishes, Didong also has speciality dishes on the menu. They change regularly and reflect the contemporary view of the traditional Indonesian cuisine. Takeaway dishes are also available.

“Great vegetarian rijsttafel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Didong is a small and cozy restaurant a bit far from the city center, but it's worth the trip. The service is really nice and the food comes quickly. I've had their vegetarian rijsttafel twice and it is a fantastic choice. The combination of different flavors, textures and levels of spicing is outstanding, and it makes for a very fun meal to share. It's the type of meal that will satisfy both meat eaters and vegetarians, definitely recommendable!

This restaurant is highly recommended by our local friends. The food was wonderful, nicely presented and the service was good. Don't forget to feed the meter for parking.

“Tasty fresh Indonesian food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was a real find. The rijstaffel was extremely good with a nice variety of dishes and an excellent beef rendang. The food was also freshly cooked, which is not always the case with a rijstaffel. The staff were friendly and provided a high standard of service and most of the customers were locals, which speaks for itself. I would liked one or two spicier dishes. But I certainly look forward to a return visit!

“delicious indonesian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

Very nice indonesian restaurant. The food is fresh and well presented. Welcoming atmosphere . The service is efficient and very friendly.
The restaurant is located in a residential area and it is worth a detour for having a nice dinner. It is the best indonesian food that I have tasted so far in den haag. There are still few places that I plan to visit therefore I can not yet say that it is the best indonesian restaurant of Den Haag. The restaurant was quite crowded therefore I would advice to book in advance.

“Fusion Indonesian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

In Den Haag one must eat Indonesian food, reflecting the huge emigrant population's spicing up of Dutch fare offerings. Didong is delightful, with a modern take on some classic SE Asian dishes.
