Sie-Joe is one of my favorite restaurants in the Center of Amsterdam. I have tried most dishes and have never been disappointed.
Very small restaurant only 3 indoor tables. Food decent. Peanut sauce on chicken satay very good. Small drinks (coke and orange juice), expensive and only 250 ml. My wife loved it, I thought it ok. Probably wouldn't go back. Did not take credit card which is a pain for international travelers.
I have been for the first time at Sie Joe in the 80's. It was a lovely little place back then, serving wonderful food. Times have changed... We were with 3 persons and ordered Soto Ayam, Nasi Rames and Nasi Goreng Kambing. First arrived the Soto Ayam, 5 minutes later the Nasi Rames and another 5 minutes later my Nasi... More
I've been to amsterdam several times and always come to this small restaurant, just to eat my favorit meal that is "ketoprak" and "teh botol sosro". The restaurant is so small and simply and it feels like home's dining room, some dining tables and close to the kitchen..very homey.. The service is quite good, friendly and the price is not... More
I love Indonesian cuisine, and being that I live in Singapore where it's readily accessible, and love visiting Indonesia, I like to think I know it quite well. The food here is pretty authentic, considering that certain ingredients required for the traditional dishes are banned or difficult to come by in Amsterdam, as Joe told us. You have to add... More
having lived in Indonesia for years... YEARS... and I'm very into food...., I can tell you: these folks just don't put any love in the food! Soto Ayam was tiny and flavorless. Krupuks were stale. Sambal was sriracha, not cool! These are long term Dutch residents, of Chinese Indo descent.... they don't have the flavor of Indonesia in their soul!
I just wanted to add my bit to the many other contributors who have given Sie-Joe a big thumbs up. I have been going to Amsterdam on pleasure and business for over a decade. I always eat at Sie-Joe often multiple times in a visit, most often lunch or early dinner. The picture for this little place is Longton Special.....yum!... More
We have eaten in Sie-Joe on numerous occasions over the last decade and on all visits have been pleased with the quality of the food and the value for money. The restaurant is very small - to the point where it can be a little uncomfortable when a number of tables are occupied - when it can be necessary to... More
Sie-Joe is a small restaurant (more of a lunchroom, actually) we often visit if we're in the city centre, it's located around the corner of Dam square. Sie-Joe offers authentic Indonesian dishes; Nasi goreng, gado-gado, soto ayam etc. Nothing fancy, just good affordable food, great for a lunch or early dinner (they close early around 19:00).
We had planned to visit another Indonesian restaurant but they didn't open till the evening so we found Sie-Joe instead. Coming from Southeast Asia, I liked the interior of Sie-Joe because it had a homely vibe. I must say the establishment more of an eatery than a restaurant, so you would go there for a quick meal than an extended... More
