I still can't work out why this little treasure isn't fully booked every time I eat there. The food is amazing, the flavours intense and authentic. For two people we have more then enough food, leave utterly satisfied wishing we could fit more in and...More

We enjoyed Rijsttafel whilst living in Holland some time ago. 1945 is a great find with authentic dishes and nice ambience. Mud Crab is a speciality and tastes brilliant - just be prepared for the mess.

1945 takes you back to traditional Indonesian food. Great visual experience with all the right things from the wooden menu "box" through to food served on leaves. Great for food, Great for value

I have been here several times and the food is always good. Small portions with small prices so you can taste lots of dishes. I was there for 3 1/2 hours tonight and at $40 a head, it was awesome.

Don't go here if you want spicy and fiery Sumatran food, this restaurant serves exquisite and mildly flavored sundanese food, fit for the courts and high places of West-Java. Rijsttafel is not my fave way of enjoying Indonesian food, we all had our choice of...More

I went with a couple of friends during the Mudgee Uncorked Wine Festival. For a licenced restaurant, I expected the waitperson who knows his wine, but that wasn't the case. Food was nice, and I like the serving method, but portion could be better. Overall,...More

1945 is a restaurant specialising in Dutch East Indies cuisine. Dutch East Indies was the Dutch colony that is now modern Indonesia. The Dutch colonial feast, Rijsttafel (literally translates to Rice Table) was invented during the era to showcase the abundance of exotic spices of the Indonesian archipelago, and it remains popular even after the country’s independence in 1945. Inspired by Rijsttafel, here at 1945 we are reliving the era to bring to you the finest of cuisines that pay homage to various regions of Indonesia. Served in small servings, one can savour the many distinct flavours, colours and textures of the vast array of dishes spanning from classic popular to unknown hometown fares in just one sitting. 1945 invites you to take a journey back in time, and to taste the rich blend of Indonesia’s vibrant cultures on a plate.
