My wife and I have been eating at Java for +15years. The owner is very gracious and customer focused. She customizes dishes for my wife, who can eat almost no spices. In addition, the owner often says, "Take your time." That's a novelty in restaurants...More

This is a quiet little place on a corner of 7th Avenue in Park Slope. I found it quite by accident. Apparently the hipsters have not yet discovered Indonesian food, so much the better for accessibility. We walked right in on a snowy January Saturday...More

Had the Rijsttafel with another couple. Tiny Mom & Pop place with prompt and courteous service. Food out of this world, at a reasonable price. Impossible to leave this place hungry. Wish there were one in my neighborhood.

Although we went to dinner at this restaurant for no other reason than proximity/convenience, we ended up recommending it within a day to many others. With only two people and little time, we did not order the full rijsttafel, which leaves us something to look...More

My sweet Dutch husband and I stole away to NYC for a quick anniversary trip. I wanted to surprise him with some Bitterballen and Saucijzenbroodjes but couldn't find any Dutch restaurants. But I hoped he would be just as excited about a Rijsttafel. We went...More
