We ordered the rice banquet and it was delicious! A really interesting concept where you get to try so many different plates, ranging in spice. Really delicious! It's just a shame we got so full so quickly|!

You need to book. We had the small rijstaffael which was plenty of food for two people. Food was tasty and plentiful. Easy location on main eat street of Amsterdam. Great, friendly service even though it was very busy

Service was poor, food over cooked and not very appetising after waiting so long. It was overpriced and the gin and tonic was overpriced with no lemon/lime offered. As a table of 12 the room was over crowded, overall very disappointing.

We had the Chef's rice table with our adult celiac daughter and her husband, and everyone found several things to love for the innovative flavors. Spicy level descriptions were accurate, and although we hail from California and know spicy, levels 1 and 2 were enough...More
