As Indonesians, it always tempting to taste our own food when travel abroad. We order rijsttafel sets and find that they were perfectly cooked as they should be in the home country. The excellent tea choices should alsoa be credited, but they are not from Indonesia.... :)

I went for lunch and there was a choice of several plates known as Rijsttafel. It was really good: several small dishes with flavors of coconut and spices from Indonesia served with steamed rice. I also asked them if they had an extra spicy sauce and was given two additional sauces, one of them which had a great bite. The... More

My wife and I had the Rijssttafel and it was the best meal we had during our entire trip! The flavors were amazing and the depth of spice was stunning. Make sure to have a reservation or you will not get into the place.

Having been to Blauw Indonesian restaurant the night before and loved it, we decided to choose this restaurant because it was highly rated and very near the flower market where we happened to be at lunchtime. The place was almost empty and lacked atmosphere, but we ploughed on and order the rijstafel again. The food was fine, but not sensational,... More

This restaurant is placed next to the flowers market so in the town center. The food was very good and not expensive at all. Unfortunately they do not have baby chair and a place where babies can be changed. Anyway they are very friendly. I suggest it.

We went here after reading about it online, got the Kuning Rijsttafel. There was loads of food, all of it absolutely delicious, just as good as the Rijsttafel I had in Indonesia. Staff were friendly and it was a decent price considering the central location.

I ordered the "rice table" for one for 26 euros and the amount of food they brought out was amazing. The sate was maybe the best I have every had (three different kinds, 6 skewers altogetherr) and the other dishes were good, but not as outstanding at the sate. I could only eat half (though the couple sitting next to... More

We went without a reservation and the staff were happy to accommodate us letting us know we had 2 hours in which to eat our dinner. The food came quite fast, and was delicious! Do remember when they say spicy, they mean spicy! So order some water sit back and enjoy their friendly service and delicious food!

This beautiful, quaint restaurant is all you need when visiting Amsterdam. Traditional rice tables served in a lovely atmosphere by a very kind and helpful team. You can choose the level of spice in these dishes and none of them will disappoint. My stepfather enjoyed it so much he wanted to come back the next day for lunch. There are... More

We were perusing the flower market and happened upon this wonderful restaurant. Not only is the decor very quaint, the food was absolutely delicious!. We had the sate solo and the pangsit goreng and it was plenty of food to fill us both. Great customer service too.
