Great taste. Friendly attentive service. We ordered the vegetarian rijsttafel which offered a great taste variety. The additional barbecued shrimps we ordered, were cooked to perfection. All the other side dishes were delicious as well. Lovely table near the window. We will be be back.

A great and traditional place to take friends and family, certainly from out of town. The food is good, the service is authentic and friendly. Price - value - quality is very good.

Never change anything !!! However, here and there you can make some repairs. The atmosphere is exactly as it was in the 1950-ties. A feel of the East Dutch Indies, with extreem friendly Javanese service and good food. Make sure, if you ever redecorate that...More

The waiter was rude! Towards the end of our meal, my friend and I saw a few rats crawling out from the back of the wall. More came and roamed around. We tried to get the waiter's attention! Unsurprisingly due to the bad service, it...More
