It’s hard to compare Sampurna to other restaurants, as I don’t like spicy food, but I do remember delicious dinners at the Bali Restaurant on earlier visits to Amsterdam. Perhaps it was better! I didn’t enjoy the meal; my husband liked it a bit better....More

Looked up the top Indonesian restaurants in Amsterdam for our final lunch, as given the history of the East India Trading Company, it is one of the most popular cuisines in the city. Sampurna was top of the list, right next to the picturesque flower...More

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
