Rijsttafel the Indonesia speciality is a dining experience you have to experience in Amsterdam and Tempo Doeloe is one of the best. Chose one of the Rijsttafel options and sit back and enjoy a truly delightful experience.

When dining here go for the Grand Rijsttafel and you will n0t be disappointed. Approx 25 small dishes served in courses of 6 or so per course, from mild to spicy at the end.

We had made reservations for dinner but I made a mistake on my dates. There happened to be one table available and they accommodated us. It was very nice of them because they didn't have to. The service was good and the food was fantastic....More

We ordered the rice banquet and it was delicious! A really interesting concept where you get to try so many different plates, ranging in spice. Really delicious! It's just a shame we got so full so quickly|!

You need to book. We had the small rijstaffael which was plenty of food for two people. Food was tasty and plentiful. Easy location on main eat street of Amsterdam. Great, friendly service even though it was very busy

Service was poor, food over cooked and not very appetising after waiting so long. It was overpriced and the gin and tonic was overpriced with no lemon/lime offered. As a table of 12 the room was over crowded, overall very disappointing.
