Come to this fun and popular rest on the west side of Vondelpark and enjoy some of the best food Amsterdam has to offer. I would recommend ordering 1 set menu per every 2 people, and supplement with satays from their ala carte menu. Reservation essential, and a very nice wine menu, expect the meal to take 90 minutes plus.

Went here few days ago for dinner with ex-colleague. Food quality was OK, standard Indonesian food which already adjusted to local taste. However, the price range is considered too high for such quality and quantity. Service was good.

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation from a friend. "Food was good but a little overrated" - my dutch wife. I liked it. We had booked and arrived early and whilst there seemed to be free tables we were turned away and told to come back later. When we came back shortly afterwards there were still free tables... More

I have been to this place 5 times now and in very different configurations : with friends, with a date, with colleagues and for a business meal. The place looks very nice, simple and tasteful decoration. All the waiters are really nice and helpful, always with a pinch of good mood or humour which I really appreciate! The food is... More

I came here with a friend a couple nights ago. We were very excited to try this place. After living in Amsterdam for six months, I don't expect too much of the service. Even such, our waitress was not very friendly. I asked for tap water, to which she said I would only get if I ordered a drink. As... More

Exceeded expectations - excellent rice table experience. Lots of little plates and diverse, developed flavors. Did take a bit of time to get food, so plan on having a drink or two while you wait. Best food we had all trip in Amsterdam!

This restaurant is located a little bit away from the city center but it was worth the excursion. We had three people sharing two of the rijsttafels - essentially a meal made up of dozens of small dishes. Everything was so tasty and flavorful! It was a fun way to share a meal with friends and experience a variety of... More

Reception is very good. This restaurant has many stairs and height levels. It depends very much where you are seated. We had such bad acoustics we could hardly hear our friends across the table... The waiters were very busy walking all those stairs. Food was delivered speedily but drinks after dinner were slow. The food itself was very good, tasty... More
