This place is not just a restaurant, but also a take away, more like a home delivery service for meals. they serve authentic Indonesian food and I usually thoroughly enjoyed it. The last time we ordered there, however, the food left to be desired. It was rather bland and lacked the subtle flavours we are used to. I have the... More

Nice restaurant, not so crowded. Good and friendly services. Food is great, just that slightly different and intense taste of Indonesia and Malaysia. Excellent selection of sate's, worthwhile to dig in. Atmosphere and ambiance is average, not upper nor lower half. Price/quality very attractive, you can have an excellent meal (eg Nasi Ramas) plus beer for just EU 15,=

Have been going to Papaya since my days as a student in Rotterdam, eight years ago. Most recently visited with my wife on a day trip back to the city. As always, fast and attentive service, plentiful and delicious meals (I especially enjoy the mini-rijsttafels they offer) and amazing value for money. The decor never changes and is not particularly... More

Great value for money and gorgeously delicious. Food is fresh, environment seems to be clean and the containers do not spill as much as others I've encountered. Try the tempeh (numbers 30 and 34 on the menu!). Good for vegetarians, meat-lovers and seafood lovers and the menu is well translated into English so that there is no stress as to... More

The food is good, just as it should be. The restaurant itself could do with some new decorations, tables, chairs, plates, etc

This restaurant is very nice for a take away. They have very good Indonesian food at very good prices. You can order the food directly at the restaurant or they can deliver it to your home. They have individual and family menus, you can build up your own meal picking the meat, veggies and type of rice or noodles. Meat... More

I have had good Indonesian food in Bali, Auckland and in Leiden as well. This place has many choices and food is not bad but it didnt seem that authentic to us. You have a lot of choices and it is definitely value for money.
