Typical Indonesian low budget restaurant. Not bad but really nothing to remember. Not everything tasted good and nothing excelled. Just another fast food type of restaurant.

If you're in The Hague and looking for a good Indonesian restaurant look no further. Istana offers an excellent menu of delicious, well cooked quality food, and living in South East Asia we know the difference. We found their chicken and beef particularly tender.

Attended for a meal with friends. We ordered the rijsttafel. Initially had a starter of spring rolls which were quite average. Next came a large tray with many different dishes on - food was not very warm. There was a large range of meat dishes...More
