It is now a different restaurant (Vietnamese). We walked 30 mins to get here and were disappointed. Don't bother making the trek. It is a shame as it looked nice!

I visited the restaurant on Friday night. There were not so many people there. The waitress and the restaurant owner/manager were welcoming us. The restaurant looks nice with elegant authentic Indonesian decoration like wayang, sculptures, etc. We ordered Pepes Ikan (steamed spicy fish) and Sate Ayam (chicken satay with peanut sauce) for takeaway. The food were delicious but too pricey... More

Thomas recommended this restaurant. I think it's included by Kulturklüngel. We were a group of 8 people. Came into the restaurant, I had a comfort feeling. The decoration was nice. They have a big space. The owner and waitress were so friendly. We talked to them about their restaurant, in Bahasa Indonesia. The food were fine and price was OK.... More

For many years, this has been my favourite Indonesian restaurant due to the authentic flavour everything has. The rice tables are amazing, and the Rendang is probably the best. They also improved on the decor which used to be a bit too cold but now it's quite good. Great staff.

I have traveled around Europe for sometime and I always try to test Indonesian food in each city if it is available. I have to admit, that so far this restaurant is the best so far !!! We ordered rendang, sate and nasi goreng, and it is very good taste and it is authentic. The only down side is the... More

The atmosphere in this restaurant is nice, the food better than some Indonesian restaurants I visited in Holland. The food is not very spicy but comes with home-made sambal so you can adjust that to your taste. The waiter also spoke Dutch which was helpful since communication in German was a bit cumbersome, both from my side and the waiter’s.... More

The owner is from Solo Indonesia so there is a big picture of Borobodur on wall. Beautiful Indonesia statues and traditional Indonesian puppets decorate the restaurant. Very homely atmosphere.  There is Reistafel selection as well as a la carte menu. Naturally we took the a la carte. The rendang beef is their speciality so we ordered that. That was okay.... More

It was a charming place with enough Indonesian decor to create an ambience without being kitsch. I was on my own but I was given a very good table. The service was charming I was able to have a rijstafel for one. I haven't eaten this kind of food since I was In Amsterdam many years ago so I am... More

Maybe it has something to do with the holiday season but I find the service to be excruciatingly slow. We set down at 8 pm and recieved our food at 9 pm. If only the food would have been memorable.

Having turned up in Cologne and discovered our hotel was terrible my boyfriend and i went on the hunt to find solace in food. We were greeted by a warm welcome and excellent service. The restaurant feels like a cocoon of warm Indonesian hospitality. We had the satay chicken on the bone which was tasty and succulent and followed this... More
