Can recommend this authentic Indonesian restaurant and their menu Rice banquet. Service is perfect. Always remember to reserve table especially in weekends and “rush” hour.

We had some guests from the USA last night and took them to Sama Sebo, for a tasing of all the great Indonesian flavours through a ' rice table'. The service was great, nice, cozy restaurant, good sound level and.. the food was delicious. The flavours were great, the variety of dishes was plenty and we had a great time out. The guests had Heiniken with the meal, but as Belgian, I had an Affligem beer from tap (since they did not have Indonesian beer at the restautant - which is brewed by Heineken too I believe ..). To top of: a nice coffee and ' spekkoek' , a delicious Indonesian layered cake. Perfect meal and a perfectly nice evening out.

Crowded & friendly welcome at 7pm on a sunny Friday night. At first told they were fully booked but then managed to squeeze 2 of us in. Friendly and quite informal. Rice table selection was excellent. 23 different dishes! €33 each, plus drinks.

Sama Sebo has become a fast food Indonesian restaurant for tourists. The delicious, fresh, tasty, spicy small dishes of the rijsttafel from the past are no more. Food is served lightening fast, showing it was readily made, delivered after a run through the microwave. Only exception were the delicious goat and shrimp sate, which were seemingly the only fresh food items, as they arrived halfway the meal. The restaurant was crowded. Our tiny table squeezed in a corner was not quite comfortable for a relaxed dinner. Anyway, we were in and out in no time.

Good Nasi Goreng, but thought the prices were a bit too high. Atmosphere of the restaurant was good too.
