Good service and decent ambiente, food is very good and recommendable, standard Indonesian Rice Tafel, nothing too exotic. A bit pricy though

Born in Indonesia we ate more rice dishes at home than traditional Dutch potatoes so I think my parents taught me to recognize the real thing ... and Flamboyant is the real thing. We had the rice table menu. Tasty chicken soup (Soto Ajam), delicious rice table and "spekkoek". The gado gado, sajoer boontjes, chicken chili, beef and sate were... More

Who doesn't like sweet, spicy peanut sauce? Very good gado-gado even if the carrots are not cooked and there was no toasted tempeh and these people don't know that hard boiled eggs and not vegetarian.

Very nice and friendly staff. Small terrace outside and beautiful inside. The vegetarian "rijs tafel" was gorgeous.

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant - the food is very tasty and if you're not familiar with Indonesian food, they're happy to explain everything and made sure to provide plenty of vegetarian options. Even though the restaurant was fully booked, they made extra effort to accommodate an elderly couple who had been walking in the cold and... More

It being Christmas, the Christmas menu was the only choice available. Thinking that my sensitivity to shellfish might be a problem, I told our very nice waiter and he immediately informed the kitchen. Result: some very clever tweaking meant I wasn't offered anything shrimpy, in fact the chef recreated one or two dishes that normally involved the little critters. That... More

Had a very nice experience dining at this Indonesian restaurant. Couldn't really fault it, good service, good food (and lot's of it!!), lovely ambience. Thoroughly recommend it! Being Indonesian "virgins" we chose the rijstafel (a varied selection of vegetarian and meat dishes). All very tasty! Service was particularly attentive. It wasn't the cheapest meal we've ever had... But it was... More

The restaurant looks very inviting from the outside, we had a lovely welcome from the waiter as we entered and the service was faultless from beginning to end. It's nice the restaurant had an English menu, the selection of main courses isn't massive but more than enough, we were wondering what to have when we saw the "all you can... More
