Business trip with colleagues busy restaurant. Ordered quickly but food was very slow to arrive. Plenty of food but flavours were poor. Took an age for waiter to come back to get more drinks. Disappointed overall.

Here is an authentic Indonesian restaurant specializing in a grat variety of Rijstafel presentations. The food is great, plentiful and reasonably priced. Have some local draft beer which pairs really well with the various rijstafel choices. Nestled in the old town of The Hague this reastaurant is a must visit in the capital. You will leave satisfied!

Those responsible for this restaurant should be 'malu', which means ashamed in the Indonesian language. I know my Indonesian food very very well, having lived in the country. This was the worst Indonesian meal that I have ever had. The deco is dark and gloomy Dutch colonial. Booked a table, it was not ready when we arrived. We were treated... More

Authentic indonesian restaurant. Centrally located. The restaurant itself is decorated nicely. Wide selection of foods, and the portions are quite big.

Lovely little place with a great atmosphere. We arrived at 7.30 and we're lucky enough to get the last table. We ordered the huge selection of food to share and enjoyed it thoroughly. I haven't eaten Indonesian before so cannot compare it to anywhere else but I enjoyed the taste, especially the heat from some of the dishes. I loved... More

The restaurant has a good atmosphere. It is cosy. There are little hints at history (some of the old signs 'ring for service' are still there, but in English, so I wonder if they have been bought elsewhere). But it is certainly pleasant. Service was good. I have food allergies and I was offered the option of having any pork... More

This restaurant has very good authentic Indonesian food with pleasant and friendly service. The rijsttafel was as good as it gets with each dish well-executed and differentiated. It's a cosy and homey atmosphere and all in all was very satisfying.

A short while ago my husband and I were walking past this authentic-looking restaurant. It was slightly late for dinner, so we could see several empty tables. We decided to give it a try. The person who seemed to be the owner did not write down our orders and we were worried he could bring the wrong items. He assured... More
