We went here for a late lunch (around 3PM) with a large group of around 15 people. We ordered rijsttafel, and had a delicious selection of Indonesian dishes. Not as much variety as others that I've seen - only two meat dishes (satay and spicy beef), but quite a few veggie dishes.

Service was quick, though we did have to remind them not to put shrimp crackers on the vegetarian food. To their credit, they quickly (and happily) replaced the offending dishes. Plenty of food for everyone, and very tasty. Value seemed reasonable, but not outstanding.

We found this restaurant by chance on the last night of our long weekend in Amsterdam and wished we had found it on the first night. The food was so good and the choice was so large that we could easily have gone there every night.

The restaurant was buzzing as we went passed and one look at the plates on the diners seated on the pavement-side tables was enough to convince us that it was worth investigating. Bearing in mind that it was 7pm on a Saturday evening we were worried we wouldn't get a table. However the manager offered us the only available table which was reserved for 9pm, which was ample time for a meal for four (provided the service was prompt).

The service was indeed prompt and done with a smile ,no mean feat considering how incredibly busy it was and how varied the menu.

Confronted with such a choice was, at first daunting, however there were some wonderful options which had a sampling of several different dishes. Wonderful! Delicious and filling.

We all left the restaurant feeling fully sated and delighted.

I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant, but would advise booking a table in advance if dining at the weekend.

Every time I visit Amsterdam I go to this restaurant. I take friends and family here and everybody leaves raving about it. The food is excellent, portions are generous and excellent value. The staff are also brilliant, it's centrally located and overall the experience is fantastic. Whatever you do, don't miss this if you're in Amsterdam
