Have only had rijsttafel once and that was at Indrapura. Really enjoyed it though,and couldn't fault the food or service.

We've been to Long Pura and Sama Sebo, and would eat at both again if there wasn't so many others to try. Tempo Doeloe, Blauw, Kantjil & de Tiger are all on my list for September. So many choices!

If you are close to Leidseplein, do go to Puri Mas for a Rijsttafel - you will enjoy the experience.

They have a much better price (than places like Max, Kantjil, Sama Sebo etc.) and very good value for money to have a simple Rijsttafel experience. Long Pura is even more expensive than Max etc.

( I have had a lot of good experiences at Max, Kantjil etc. but also sometimes not so nice given they are much more expensive ).

From what I hear Kantjil has lost its place for high recommendation. My meal there 10 years ago was nothing to write home about, either. Amsterdam Foodie recommends Blauw and Tempolo, so I will go for that next week.

TripAdvisor ranks Max #39 out of ALL restaurants in Amsterdam and ranks Blauw #145. Couldn't even find Tempolo.

K K - I surmised the same thing but someone else (including the OP) looking for "Tempolo" might get confused.
