“Very good restaurant”

Their food is very tasty and the service friendly, prices reasonable. The restaurant is small and can get crowded. There are several hotels in the area and the place is quire frequented by tourists. I was happy to choose this place for my dinner.

Good place for those who miss Indonesian cuisine, while you're here.
Taste is similar with the food in my homeland Indonesia.
Love shrimp crackers (krupuk) ; soto mie ; rendang..

“authentic indonesian”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

definitely a place to go if you're looking for indonesian cuisine. a lot of indonesian restaurant in amsterdam but rarely offer the real indonesian taste. we know the restaurant from a friend that recommend it to us. we order the extra rijstafel. it was really nice. various choices put on a small plate so we could taste a bit of everything. it was such a complete meal. we also try the dessert with coconut ice cream and on top of that, they gave us some fruits dessert as a complement. for the place itself, we find it very indonesian, with a lot of paintings and art pieces. we spent quite a long time there. definitely will go back there some other time to try the other menu.

“Really an authentic taste of indonesian cuisine!”
Reviewed 5 November 2012 via mobile

Great service and fantastic kitchen.

I recommend rijstafel istimewa for everyone! A complete experience of most of Indonesian dishes in a small plate. The starter is tasty and desert and coffee is included. Not to mention that we got a small fruit from the house. Really sweet.

The location is quite strategic, not far from the Sarphati park. This is a restaurant that was also recommended by the usherette at Rialto, the cinema not far from the restaurant.
