I have been in the restaurant several times. Due to the way food is served (in a variety of different portions), there is usually food served among the many little plates that I do not like. While the prices are in general moderate, some dishes...More

My husband and I wanted to try Indonesian food in Amsterdam and got the risttafel here. The food was delicious, presented well, and I thought reasonably priced considering the amount of food. It was a short walk from Vondelpark and close to a metro station...More

This will certainly be remembered as one of the highlights of our trip to Amsterdam. The rijsttafel was outstanding. Each dish was a delight. The entire experience was very special. Thank you to the warm and friendly staff who provided such a lovely evening.

We went to Blauw to try the Ristaffel or rice table for 30 something euro. The staff was friendly but i found her annoying over imposing and condescending. We tried the Rice table, the food was excellent and delicious but not worth the price. Overall...More

Great place! Great food! Great service! We got the meat rice table (rijsttafels) which gave us a great sample of many dishes. Even my young daughters loved the food. Our waitress was amazing!

Cool place yet tables a little bit too close to each other, though we were in a lucky window position. Food is excellent , try the rice table, fish, meat or Vega, great experience! Feel wine is overpriced.

I have been wanting to eat rijstaffel since I first read about it as a preadolescent in a science fiction short story over a half century ago. A dream fulfilled! Well worth the wait. Blauw offers a delicious, filling, completely satisfying traditional Dutch rijstaffel! An...More

We had Indonesian food for the first time here. We split the Ikan Rasa (seafood) rijsttafel. It was plenty for us. There was a wide variety of types of seafood and sauces used to flavor them. Check out the menu beforehand to give yourself time...More

A friend recommended this restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed the rijfstassel meal. It's a little crowded, but the food is outstanding. Easy to find - just take the tram and walk a few minutes to get there.

Hi there, Indonesian food is spicy. Period. If you order a rice table at least half the dishes vary from spicy to very spicy. It's somewhere between a Thai mild curry and Indian vindaloo. Hope this helps.

We paid about 31 euro per person. It is a lot of food for one person, but there is a 10 euro charge to split. Be warned, the servers have attitude issues! Best regards, Stropertre.
