Walk-in booking (20 min wait) on a cold wet January night. Charming service, we ordered vegetarian Rijstafel for 3 (as a party of 2 adults and 2 children). The food was generous, with wide variety of dishes which was a lovely introduction to Indonesian food...More

I had here probably the worst meal ever in any restaurant. Tastless veggies with rice. Dirty table cloths. Really subpar in every way. Now I understand Kitchen Nightmares, Gordon Ramsey would have loads of work here.

Order one of the pre-set menus and enjoy an infinite combination of tastes. Lovely atmosphere, including live piano, in the midst of an otherwise hectic part of Amsterdam.

Beautiful decor greets the visitor before the maitre d' who is a little curt but professional although a little slow taking the coat after showing you to a table. From then on, I couldn't make a critical comment about the service, which all three waiters...More

Had the vegetarian rice table for 2. Lots of food, some enjoyable surprises and others we weren’t too keen on. A couple more vegetarian dishes would have been nice. Brilliant service and lovely decor

We came here on a recommendation from our hotel for a moderately priced place to eat but did great food. We were not disappointed! We ordered the 30 Euro per person rice table and was really impressed with the volume and quality of the food....More

This place is a typical tourist trap, it builds on Dutch love for Indonesian food and delivers mediocre taste at premium price. Most of the dishes that come with a rise platter are ineligible coated with sugars and spiced to an extent that it is...More

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws

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!
