We all wanted Indonesian food so we came across this restaurant by the flower market. The menu was varied but I wanted to try lots of things.. there was four hungry adults to feed. I ordered set menu but not the same set menu for all 4 of us so we would have a cross section of dishes.. Food arrived... More

Had an early dinner because of a flight. The Rijsttafel was great, and service was just as good! Can recommended this place.

Dinner on Saturday night. Restaurant very busy but sat up the back where it was much quieter and relaxed. Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was everything you could want from a rijsttafel. Fresh, tasty, spicy, wonderful flavours. Spectacular. Well worth it but make sure you book.

I had a delicious chicken from Bali (ayam Bali) and it was a nicely spicy and colourful with broad spectrum of tastes. Google translate helped me understanding the restaurant's name: "Sampurna" means "perfect". For me it definitely was.

The restaurant was full, the service was prompt and polite, the food came quickly and was perfectly cooked. Far better value and quality than some of the traditional Dutch offerings.

Went here with friends. The menu is slightly confusing, but the staff is really good about taking the time to explain it. We had one of the set menus which was way too much food for 2 people, but a great way to try a number of dishes. Food came out quickly, but after that we were ignored completely. No... More

The restaurant was empty. Maybe I choose the wrong dish but I was breathing fire. I drink 2 litres of water and all I could take was red hot CHILLI

Not sure why the reviews rate this place so highly as the quality of food is average to poor from my experience. The menu is a little difficult to navigate and read so made our decisions quite slow; all the while being asked multiple times whether we were ready to order. It seems most people go with the set menu;... More

We enjoyed their Rijsttafel - a wonderful melange of flavors and foods. Every dish was tasty and nicely presented. The staff was very friendly and efficient and the food started coming out immediately. I'd go back again for sure.

Sampurna restaurant was recommend to me by a friend and I simply love it. Divine Indonesian cuisine, if you want to dine here during the weekend then I highly advise you to book/reserve a table. Lunch is good as well. Prices are very reasonable, for example: lunch for 2, incl. 1 drink each, +/- 20 euro's. I would definitely return... More
