I will start with the negatives - the restaurant is large, loud, chaotic and out of the way. You need a reservation. When crowded, the service is slow. However, you should still go. The food (while I do not know how authentic it is) is a delicious version of Indonesian food. Further, the prices are extremely fair for the quantity... More

Blauw is a buzzy, atmospheric, Indonesian restaurant in the outskirts of Amsterdam. We went there during a visit to celebrate a friend's birthday. The food was very good. We went for the Rijffstafel (Ricetable) which produced some 30 odd tasting plates of meat, seafood and vegetarian dishes. A great introduction to Indonesian food hoped by some Lovely and helpful staff.... More

We had a great starter with 4 different types of typical Indonesian street food. We shared it two persons, but one person could also easily have it as an starter. The main course was good as well, with a lot of different toppings included. All in all a good experience and good attention from the nice waitress.

We have been visitors to the Blauw venue in Utrecht and so we had to try this one with friends. The food was very good, we had Rijsttafel fish and meat to share with 4 persons. The only disapointment was, at this special evening, that between entering the restaurant and getting the main dish we had approx 80 minutes of... More

We enjoyed the Fish rice table very much although there was a mix up with our service. However we were compensated with a free beer each and the waitresses were very friendly and cute. Gets very busy-essential to book and not cheap.

We had 2 different chicken dishes and shrimps. Very good food overall. Spicy chicken was excellent, the mild one I didn't like too much though. Plenty of side dishes, caramelized potato I liked the most.

Fantastic food, good variety to choose from. There is a dish that allows you to taste the main dishes of the menu, the so-called "rice table", and is very good for a first time. Delicious spices, exceptional service, good place to go with friends, family or for a romantic dinner. Unmissable.

Great restaurant, hidden in the Red Light District and worth the walk. Great service and attention. We were treated like regulars the first time we were there. Excellent food, limited or fixed menu which varies based on what is available.

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.
