We were so impressed we nearly went back the second night in Amsterdam, but that would have been a wasted opportunity to explore. We will return for the Satay Salad

Went to Indonesia 2 years ago and haven’t tasted the true flavour since then... until now. Genuinely brilliant and would recommend the sharing menus where you can try a little dish of every meal on the menu. Fantastic.

This place is simply amazing and I can't wait to return next spring! The food is to die for and the service is wonderful. I have sent friends there following my visit and never heard a bad word about the place.

We had the Indonesian Rice Table (Rijstaffel) for two per the recommendation of the waiter. 9 small dishes (seabass, chicken, beef, veggie, pickles). Very tasty. We didn't have any wine, but looks like a good wine selection. Friendly service. A little pricy but reasonable (e.g....More

Your about 3.5Km away. So approximately a 45 minute walk! If you are visiting the Anne Frank Museum it's only five minutes from there. Hope this is helpful, have fun in Amsterdam!

Open only for dinner, starting at 6pm. Adventurous food in a Cosmopolitan relaxed setting, located in the heart of Amsterdam's most beautiful canal area. MAX is a place to explore a new International cuisine with the additional flavours of MamaMax' traditional Indonesian home cooking. No nonsene good food, fresh and sparkling spiced. Forget the Michellin star's copies on your plate but enjoy simply our well cooked classics with a new creatieve touch. Guests minded and friendly service. MAX has a short uncomplicated interesting wine list, excellence wines for reasonable prices. Seperate open room for function up 20 persons. Mondays open on request for business groups.
