We were visiting our friends in Amsterdam and they chose this restaurant. We all decide to have the three course meal surprise (which they bring you different foods to eat). Even our one friend doesn't eat meat and they easily accommodated her. From the local...More

Having been to Amsterdam numerous times I have had Rijstaffel a number of times. It's great food but in a simple yet exotic preparation. Lots of spices and flavors. Don't expect too much just go and enjoy a taste of the exotic. It's not cheap...More

We shared some vegetarian platters at this restaurant and loved it all. Heartily recommend sharing platters to try all they have to offer.

It has been decades since last experiencing Rijsttafel in Amsterdam and Restaurant Blauw made me wonder why I did not fly to Amsterdam at least once a year. So many plates of exotic foods are placed on the table that you cannot see the cloth....More

If you never tried rijstaffel, it might be interesting - you get to sample many different dishes of the Indonesian cuisine at once. There will be a heater on the table to keep everything nice and warm. The price system for rijsttafel is a bit...More

Also when I was there in June the 5 tram was rerouted which meant you could easily take it to the restaurant from the Museumplein or Leidesplein area ( the 5 tram is a really good one for tourists as it goes from Central... More
How spicy is the food, especially the rice table? I don't eat very spicy food - would I still be able to eat there? Thanks!

Hi there, Indonesian food is spicy. Period. If you order a rice table at least half the dishes vary from spicy to very spicy. It's somewhere between a Thai mild curry and Indian vindaloo. Hope this helps.

We paid about 31 euro per person. It is a lot of food for one person, but there is a 10 euro charge to split. Be warned, the servers have attitude issues! Best regards, Stropertre.
