    It was the first time we tasted Indonesian food. Initial reading of the menu was confusing since the main option was huge and the individual parts were not familiar at all. The waiter did explain that we could have a smaller portion which was listed as a lunch item. These turned out to be perfect for dinner and we were more than satisfied. The food was delicious and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Each dish in the Reistafel was a delight and very favorable.

    Because we did not want Reistaffel for 2 and requested 1 only and some other dishes, we were recommended to have two of the lunchtime version, which was presented on one plate each rather than having each element in individual small dishes, as in a normal Reistaffel. Some of the food was hot and some lukewarm. I was disappointed and realised that this restaurant is only interested in selling it's premium priced product. The service however was gracious and the environment pleasant.

    Quite noisy as two large groups. Food was good, although challenging to understand the menu. We were steered towards the all in one plate. Not sure we would return.

    I was very excited to try out this restaurant based on recommendations from friends. The table we were sat at was in the corner of the room. There were far too many table squeezed into this area and not really ideal for a seating of 4. After a short wait a drink order was taken and after ten minutes the drinks arrived. Then the food order was taken. The food wasn't great but the portions were large. I would have preferred less food and higher quality. We felt rushed by the waiter who decided to bang on the wall to encourage us to eat faster. He was scolded by another waiter the second time of doing this. I loved the idea of the restaurant but will not return.

    Not impressed, we had higher expectations from this well known Indonesian restaurant.

    I am not sure why this restaurant had to be booked so far in advance to get a table. It was nothing special and the food was of an average quality. However for a little over €30 they present you with about 15 dishes including hot and cold food, rice, chicken, pork, beef. All very tasty, but a lot of cheap vegetable dishes, which is probably why it’s such good value for the hungry. We noticed all the tables had dishes we didn’t, so we ended up having to ask for grilled prawns which they seem to leave off our menu. Overall very nice, a little cramped and poor ventilation.

    We enjoyed our first rice bowl dinner. Nice selection with varied tastes. One meat dish was a bit tough, but otherwise all the food was quite good.

    We were a party of 7. The space is small and cozy. The restaurant accomodated us nicely. The service was excellent. This was our first experience with this cuisine. The variety of food was delicious and delivered hot all at once. Reservations recommended.

    We selected dishes rather than have the rijstafel as we didnt want to overeat and also fancied trying dishes not available on this such as ikan bumbu bali. We chose 4 mains, 3 sides and a single portion of rice which was adequate for the two of us. With two small beers each it came to 57 euros, which we felt was very good value for the quality of food received.
