I dined here twice, once eight years ago and again February 2017. The food is still excellent. We had a Malaysian rice table. The satay kambing (lamb skewers in a sweet, dark sauce of kecap manis and gula djawa) is probably my favourite dish, though...More

An old gentlemen (probably owner?) was very friendly and provided excellent service. Food was nicely presented and very cosy place. I'm glad I found it.

This is an actual non-touristy Indonesian/Malaysian restaurant in Amsterdam. Both the staff and the prices are friendly. It's not so busy that it's okay if you just go without a reservation. The only inconvenience to tourists may be its location. It's close to downtown. Can...More

A nice restaurant away from the hustle of the city. There were not many dinners when we went there, but it still took a while for the food to come out. We had a few separate vegetarian dishes. Be warned that the vegetarian options on...More
