I adjusted my opinion that good indonesion food is only available in the Netherlands, not in Belgium. I found this precious asian diamont in the middle of the Antwerp center. Very fresh ingredients, well spiced and very royal portions. Service is very friendly. THe restaurant is very small, so reservation is recommended.

We entered this small Indonesian restaurant right in the centre of the city without having made a reservation. We got seated because we were early, but most of the tables were reserved. So, you better make a reservation. It is a small restaurant and the tables are very close to each other. Service is very friendly. The menu offers several... More

Located in the center of Antwerp (close to the cathedral and town hall) this little gem serves indonesian food of very high standard that tickles the taste buds. As they offer both à la carte as menus you are free to take your pick but I would suggest to try the menus. The variety in food is amazing, tastes are... More

Friendly staff offered great banquet menu with unusual and tasty Indonesian morsels - small dishes deceptively filling and 4 hungry people were well satisfied.

Four of us went for dinner and we all enjoyed our meal. If you're unsure what to have, taste the rice table, an assortment of various dishes. The service was polite and welcoming but quite slow. Also, 8€ for 1L of water was a little expensive! Nevertheless, I will probably go back for the sate chicken skewers and nasi goreng... More

Great place to eat Indonesian food in the City Center. We came here with a group of 10 people and sat upstairs at a big table, which was very cosy. The staff was very friendly and paid attention to the fact that one person was vegetarian and that another person couldn’t eat nuts. We ordered the Kartini menu, which offered... More

Kartini were great for GF diners and advised which dishes to avoid on the Rijstafel (for soy or flour). The server was very knowledgeable on the ingredients and processes, which helped. The Rijstafel itself was very varied and tasted great- a really brilliant experience.
