With my colleagues we had a nice dinner at Soeboer with a mixture of ricetables shared among the table. Good ambiance (tempo doeloe) and fine Indonesian food (pedis, but not too spicy). Nice service, not too present, but there when you need them. The restaurant looks like it hasn't changed since the 1970's and it hasn't... neither has the food,... More

What once was a benchmark has gone down to.... Been here for over 40 years and the past year or so prices went up some 20% and something happened to the food. Portions got smaller for one and somehow some of the attention to food quality has disappeared. What happened to the soft tasty chicken, the smooth kambing and the... More

Authentic small "rumah makan" with amazing tasty food and friendly service. Not extremely inviting from the outside, but don't let looks deceive you and enjoy the various tasty dishes. Well recommended!

The interior and exterior are not impressive, but the food is simply good. Traditional colonial "Indisch". The waitress didn't have much time for us, was our impression. When i visit The Hague again i'm not sure all go here again because of the lack of atmosphere. On the other hand when i think of the food my mouth waters.

Can't believe this is one of the better 'Indische' restaurants of The Hague. Two of us have Indonesian roots and we frequently go to this kind of restaurants. This one is definitely not worth going. Staff didn't care about the guests. Tables are too close to each other, so you can only move if the neighbours hold their breath. Food... More

The restaurant definitely proves you shouldn't be judging a book by its cover. The interior is extremely dated (although the lady who was serving us had said that there will be a refurbishment taking place soon) and it needs an update. The food, on the other hand, was delightful. I have never tried Indonesian food before but it was a... More

The restaurant's interior is dated, the outside does not look imposing at all. But once inside we were welcomed warmly and the menu was discussed at length. We sat at a rickety table and asked for white wine. The only options were dry or sweet. The dry white turned out to be a Bergerac, not at all disappointing. We did... More

We have eaten here with a group of 4 people before attending a concert. Ordered a rijsttafel with some complementary dishes. It was excellent and we will certainly come again. I especially like the Bami Soeboer and the Babi-dishes :-)

My wife and I don't like our food too spicey- and with a menu in Dutch,we wondered what we would get- we needn't have worried, the waitress took time to explain the items in English- we took her advice on what to eat and had a really enjoyable meal and the beers complemented the food nicely.
