My vote would be for Longpura near Westerkerk and Anne Frankhuis. http://www.restaurant-longpura.com/

You could also check out Sahid Jaya (http://www.sahidjaya.nl ) and Kantjil & de Tijger (http://www.kantjil.nl/ ). Both are quite centrally located by the Leidsestraat and Koningsplein

I always have at least one rijstaffel on each trip to Amsterdam (my 11th trip coming up next month). A few years ago Tempo Doeloe was the best, but it deteriorated, sadly. In recent years I have gone to Sampurna, which is excellent, but have also heard that Indrapura is good.

However, I have been hearing very good things about Kartika recently, so I might give that a go this time.

I found the service at Sampurna to be very poor, although the food was excellent.

Indrapura, as mentioned by MMKoppes, is often referred to on here as the best in town.

Thank you for your recommendations. We will be in Amsterdam in one week and look forward to our experience with rijsttafel there. Thus far we have only enjoyed it on a Holland America line ship and in an Indonesian restaurant in San Francisco.

I just retruned from Amsterdam and had rijsttafel at Kartika. Very good! Nice place, nice service. From memory, we had the 10-dish, non-vegetarian rijsttafel. With wine, beer, and water, I believe the tab for two was about 58 Euro. Well worth it. Not sure that it is a "fun" place, but the food sure was good. For fun, there are plenty of bars in the neighborhood...

"Blau" on Amstelveenseweg is great! Reserve a table in advance to get a spot. Delicious.
