The people running this place are not only friendly and lovely, but they are as professional as they can be. Despite the full restaurant, everything was tops: from ambience, to service to the impeccable food. Great stuff.

Friendly service, overall pleasant experience, but not a 5 star. If I have a chance to eat here again I would not choose a pre-fix menu.

Rijsttafel the Indonesia speciality is a dining experience you have to experience in Amsterdam and Tempo Doeloe is one of the best. Chose one of the Rijsttafel options and sit back and enjoy a truly delightful experience.

When dining here go for the Grand Rijsttafel and you will n0t be disappointed. Approx 25 small dishes served in courses of 6 or so per course, from mild to spicy at the end.

We ordered the rice banquet and it was delicious! A really interesting concept where you get to try so many different plates, ranging in spice. Really delicious! It's just a shame we got so full so quickly|!
