We returned to this little restaurant with a friend in tow as we had really enjoyed the experience last time that we visited Napier. Still a great wee place. It's popular, so do book. We had the shared dinner with small dishes of a variety of Indonesian foods. There was plenty of food and local wines could be bought to... More

After regretfully walking out of a very badly run restaurant just down the road, we decided to try some Indonesian cuisine (and Trip Advisor assured this place was good). Well this place is better than good and did not let us down; it was excellent in every way. My partner and I got the famous Rijsttafel banquet where your food... More

Restaurant Indonesia is a real treat. The excellent Rijstaffel banquet is a real highlight. Everything was cooked perfectly; well-flavoured and beautifully presented. The restaurant is casual and relaxed and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. In a town of many excellent eateries, Restaurant Indonesia is one of the best.

Our first time in this place. Booked here due to very good reviews. The place was amazing! Very nice decorations true to its name. I read some comments about the 'Blonde Lady'... We met her too and in fairness to her she was really nice and accommodating to us. All tables were reserved when we came so do book ahead... More

We went here in January for my partners mums birthday meal. Great atmosphere, loved the decorations. They had sorted out a highchair for my daughter which was great but as my partner pushed the highchair he was escorted out quickly saying to leave it outside for anyone to take. We could of easily put it behind us out the way.... More

Atmosphere is peacefully stimulating. The staff are very attentive and engaging. We had the banquet for two, it was served onto burners to keep warm while we proceeded to enjoy the many flavours of over a dozen different dishes of delicious cuisine. Far too much to eat, great value and highly recommended.

Thank you for describing your dining experience so nice and accurate. I'm sorry you felt it was far too much. Believe it or not but there are still people asking for more rice and if some dishes can be topped up.....We are aware that our portions are generous but this is mainly because we do expect people not to like...

Had a lovely dinner here with my wife. Had the house speciality (Rijsttafel) and we were VERY pleased. Food came very promptly with a delicious array of spicy Sambal (ranging from mild, to delightfully volcanic!) on the side. Very reasonably priced as well. Pro tip - if you like condiments, you can picks up jars of their Sambal on the... More

If you go to this restaurant I would highly recommend the Rijsttafel! This is a fantastic and authentic taste of Indonesian cuisine. I wasn't sure about ordering this at first as I saw another table having this and wondered if it would be enough food for me, but the meal intrigued me so I decided to order it anyway and... More

We tried the mixed rijsttafel and it was fantastic! About 15+ different dishes. Most were good to excellent, a couple were so so but over all very enjoyable. We'd definitely return. Service friendly and professional.
