This was our experience of eating the Indonesian dishes and we loved it. It is a cool place with super friendly staff who were well informed about the food. Our table was squashed full of mini dishes and they were all delicious - particularly the goat - never thought I would say that! Pleased we got a taxi from our... More

Blauw serves exquisite Indonesian food. You can take the three-course menu or choose à la carte. I ordered the 'rijsttafel' and was not disappointed. A plentiful variety of small dishes, which can be taken on a meat, fish or vegetarian basis. Really delicious, especially my satehs. You are advised to book a table. Even on a Monday, the place was... More

I experienced the Indonesian cousine for the first time with my boyfriend in this restaurant. We did not have any idea about what we would eat but we definitely liked the food! We had two main courses one with chicken and one with beef (a bit spicy) served with a lot of side dishes. The portions were really big. Service... More

We saw this place on a Rick Steves episode so we decided to check it out during our Europe vacation. If you're staying more towards the central/tourist area of Amsterdam then it would be a long walk (about 45 mins) It would take about 15-20 minutes driving or 20-30 using public transportation. We got the meat and the vegan rice... More

Lovely little Indonesian tucked away, beautifully decorated and fantastic atmosphere inside! Menu slightly confusing but fantastic food! Expect to pay 40 Euros per person with alcohol but a lovely restaurant!

I will start with the negatives - the restaurant is large, loud, chaotic and out of the way. You need a reservation. When crowded, the service is slow. However, you should still go. The food (while I do not know how authentic it is) is a delicious version of Indonesian food. Further, the prices are extremely fair for the quantity... More

Blauw is a buzzy, atmospheric, Indonesian restaurant in the outskirts of Amsterdam. We went there during a visit to celebrate a friend's birthday. The food was very good. We went for the Rijffstafel (Ricetable) which produced some 30 odd tasting plates of meat, seafood and vegetarian dishes. A great introduction to Indonesian food hoped by some Lovely and helpful staff.... More

We had a great starter with 4 different types of typical Indonesian street food. We shared it two persons, but one person could also easily have it as an starter. The main course was good as well, with a lot of different toppings included. All in all a good experience and good attention from the nice waitress.

We have been visitors to the Blauw venue in Utrecht and so we had to try this one with friends. The food was very good, we had Rijsttafel fish and meat to share with 4 persons. The only disapointment was, at this special evening, that between entering the restaurant and getting the main dish we had approx 80 minutes of... More

We enjoyed the Fish rice table very much although there was a mix up with our service. However we were compensated with a free beer each and the waitresses were very friendly and cute. Gets very busy-essential to book and not cheap.

Thank Friedmonkey
