Looks like a deli insode the door but there is a seating area! The people who own this place care more about the food than the décor, which is a good thing. It has a nice relaxed atmosphere, lovely food for extremely good prices and a cat that sits inside the door and loves rubs. We got the taster dish... More

I am not usually one to write reviews but was told upon entry Indonesian food is the best in the world. I was advised to get a platter with 6 or 7 different types of dishes. tasty and very good value. Even worth a trip from central dam if you like your Indonesian food. Hope to come back when I'm...

Ate here on our first night in the Netherlands. The staff and owner were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. We ordered the Rijsttafel and it was amazing. There was more food for everyone and the staff were more than happy to pack the leftovers up for us to takeaway. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a... More

This is a little Indonesian Restaurant run by Frank and his good lady who welcome people to their business. Situated on the outskirts of Amsterdam and convenient for those staying at the Golden Tulip Hotel Amsterdam West. Also on the 12 tram route. Closed Mondays. Take out also available.

We were really looking forward to this meal, based on the reviews here. Unfortunately we made one mistake, we went to another Indonesian take out warung two days earlier. I will not mention the place here, but it gave us an idea. Compared to the take out, Betawi was bland and overpriced. For the 60 euros we paid here, we... More

Fabulous family run restaurant and well worth the visit. Particularly tables in the garden out back - weather permitting! We had the Rijsttafel, which was excellent. My wife is Dutch Indonesian by descent and brought back fabulous memories for her. Also do take-away.

I stayed one night close by this restaurant and impressed by the reviews I decided to give it a try myself. I was not disappointed. Although it was early evening the restaurant was busy and there was a brisk take - away trade too. Staff were very friendly, the food came in good time and was very tasty, I would... More

I am so fortunate to have Betawi in my neighbourhood! Since many years I frequently enjoy their great dinners. I often bring friends along and there has been nobody who didn't love the food. The family that runs the restaurant is very kind and involved with their neighbours; they really know their guests. That, together with great food, really makes... More

We found this place because the hostel had their take out/delivery menu. Authentic Indonesian food at its best. Beautiful garden patio in the back. The ginger beer was delish on a hot day. We couldn't completely understand the menu and just ordered the seafood 3 course meal for 2. It ended up being 10 different dishes just for the main... More

We rode the #12 tram across town to eat at Betawi, and we'll do it again next time we're visiting Amsterdam. We didn't have a reservation, but we were lucky enough to get the last available table on a Saturday evening. This was my first rice table (rijsttafel) and I really enjoyed the various flavors. We were made to feel... More
