The 4 course rice table we had was superb. The presentation was unique and beautiful. The food was delicious and varied. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A place I would love to recommend for an authentic Indonesian meal. Superb!👍

We had the 4 courses rish dish menu. With main course 16 small dishes of the Indonesian kitchen. Besides the very good taste, the food is presented in an original matter. Like wrapped in banana leaves. For desert the 'spekkoek' is always an attractive option.

If you are in Alphen aan den Rijn or nearby then Sari Djawa is worth a visit. Whenever we have visitors new to the Netherlands we bring them here. The building is an old windmill (a charming touch on the way in and out). It sits directly on the river, so the view from the terrace and windows is lovely.... More
