Most Indonesian food in The Netherlands is quite cheap and of basic quality. Except here! The "rice table" offers a range of a dozen Indonesian plates, which are delicious. The staff is very friendly and makes this a classy restaurant.

Dewi Sri has, in my opinion, improved since my last visit a couple of years back. We had the rijsttafel. The quality of the food was excellent and the flavours very good. However, if you enjoy your Indonesian very spicy, like myself, then you may not find it hot enough. Apart from that the food cannot be faulted. The restaurant... More

The issues started with the table setting. Booked a table for 10 persons one must trust one would get such a table. It finally resulted in a decent table, after some 10-15 minutes. This Indonesian style restaurant seems to be unable to serve non-spicy food even though that was requested beforehand. The result is that one of the group had... More

Hi guys, One of the best Indonisian restaurants in the Netherlands. A lot of flavours, a lot of dishes. The nasi is really excellent. The sate(satay) was very tasteful. Tender meat. (But no peanut sauce; strange, normally sate is always served with peanut sauce.) Go there, but it is not cheap. The interior and tables are nice. No plastic. A... More

So far this is the best Indonesian restaurant we found in Rotterdam. We got rijsttafel (28 eur per person), and it was plenty of very tasty food. The ambiance is nice too. We will be going back.

New menu card and choice "rice tables" we had 2 vegetarian versions and 4 normal ones, the food was there in 15 min very fast service. After previous experiences it improved a lot no more completely dry... More

What a treat! Our table was inside which was unfortunate as the evening was perfect. Needless to say we had fabulous drinks soaking up the sunset then inside for dinner. We did not look at the menu instead trusted the waiter to order for us. Incredible. Tasty! Eat slowly as there is more than enough! Very good service. We felt... More

Heard only good things about this restaurant and decided to give it a try. So glad we did. Thai downstairs. Indonesian upstairs. Went early and had a choice of tables. Service was charming and unassuming. Felt at home immediately. A beer and the most delicious rifstafel...sorry about the spelling. Plates of tender meats in divine sauces. Vegetable dishes done in...

We actually appreciate it when dinner is not served within 5 minutes after ordering but waiting for more than an hour is simply too much and unacceptable. The great quality of the food compensates a lot but simply not all. Therefore a somewhat disappointing overall experience.
