We were there for dinner and was recommended by the server to order the Rijsttafel (free flowing buffet of small Dutch influenced Indonesian dishes). It was a mistake. When you are dining at a Rijsttafel, you should be entitled to re-order dishes of your likings...More

This was always a good place for a rijsttafel but standards had fall on our last visit. I am pleased to say they are back to their best with good service, good food well presented and a good atmosphere. Thoroughly recommend them.

Book early as they are very busy! Friendly staff. Good spread with some dishes spicy enough as I can tolerate a lot of chillies. A lot of different tastes catered for. My only complaint is that some of the meat bordered on being dry -...More

The food was absolutely incredible! Many amazing dishes with amazing tastes that come together to make an amazing culinary experience. If you come early and leave by 8 p.m. you save 25% on your meal. But that's where the poor customer service comes in. It...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

I think so, actually they may find it an exiting experience if you order from the rice menus. One of the rice menus is not spice at all. Great restaurant.

I would definately book and it's well worth a visit. As a previous answer said, eat light before you go as there is a great deal of food and difficult to get through. In my view this is the best restaurant this side of Mars!
