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.

From the outside this place doesn't look like an Indonesian place but it is 100% Indonesian. We had chicken dishes and left very satisfied. Probably rijstafel is even better, most people around were taking it

Having been to Amsterdam numerous times I have had Rijstaffel a number of times. It's great food but in a simple yet exotic preparation. Lots of spices and flavors. Don't expect too much just go and enjoy a taste of the exotic. It's not cheap...More

How spicy is the food, especially the rice table? I don't eat very spicy food - would I still be able to eat there? Thanks!

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.
