Nice looking Indonesian restaurant with efficient rather than charming service. I've had better rice tables but this was pretty good, and portions are generous. Prices ok for the area.

Back again eighteen months later and they still serve a superb rice table. I think it's the best in town. Once again we went for the one with spicy lobster. You get so much food it's very difficult to eat everything. Service is excellent. This...More

Great Indonesian “rijsttafel” experience when in Amsterdam. I think the only thing this restaurant has to change is the serving staff. We ate there on a Friday night but it all felt rushed. It seems the waiter was trying to get us out of the...More

I had here probably the worst meal ever in any restaurant. Tastless veggies with rice. Dirty table cloths. Really subpar in every way. Now I understand Kitchen Nightmares, Gordon Ramsey would have loads of work here.

Order one of the pre-set menus and enjoy an infinite combination of tastes. Lovely atmosphere, including live piano, in the midst of an otherwise hectic part of Amsterdam.

Beautiful decor greets the visitor before the maitre d' who is a little curt but professional although a little slow taking the coat after showing you to a table. From then on, I couldn't make a critical comment about the service, which all three waiters...More

Visited with five of us including 9 and 7 year olds who don't eat curry or spicy food generally. We had one of the Rijstafels for the three adults and absolutely loved it - 16 or 17 separate dishes, pretty much all excellent and such...More

This was my second visit. The style of the dish is lots of small dishes to share. Locally called Riffstafel. The food here is delicious. The only thing (and it may have been a language barrier) was we (2 adults and 2 kids) had to...More

I would definately book and it's well worth a visit. As a previous answer said, eat light before you go as there is a great deal of food and difficult to get through. In my view this is the best restaurant this side of Mars!
