We found this restaurant as soon as we stopped off the #16 Tram in Amsterdam. It was in the de Pijps area not far from our apartment, and we put it on the visit list for as soon as we got settled.
As our first foray into Indonesian food, we decided to both order the whole nine yards with the Rijsttafel Daging. This provided us with a portion each of chicken soup, two types of rice (white and yellow), ten mini portions of various beef and chicken entrees off of their menu (two of these mini portions would have made a nice meal!), and also dessert. At 24.50 euros each the meal was pricy, but we also enjoyed a serious amount of food and a wide variety of entrees during the meal as well. Service was really good throughout this meal.
The second time we stopped at Puri Indonesia, our experience was not the same. We each decided on a single entree after asking the waiter many questions. The order was taken swiftly, but the food took a long time to appear. We were also very surprised when the menu item she said was spicy was the least spicy of the two we ordered. Oh well. The food was quite good once we received it.
One final note: Just like in the States, a big part of your bill can be made from what you order to drink. Each time I ordered tap water (free) and they would only bring a six ounce glass and fill it once. Past two glasses, they came back instead with still water (which is from a bottle but poured into a glass), and that cost per bottle. I would encourage you to keep those water bottles with you and filled up at all times. Since many of the items here at Puri are spicy, that water bottle will be worth its weight in gold if you have it with you and at the ready!
