Located at a stone's throw from Antwerp's cathedral, Kartini is a cosy little place you might walk past if you were not aware of it's existence. The service was very friendly, the chairs comfortable and the Indonesian rice table (rijsttafel) was excellent. Quite reasonably priced for such an extensive meal.

We went for a dinner last Christmas Holidays. We discovered a very nice and cosy place in the heart of Antwerp, with superb indonesian food.

I adjusted my opinion that good indonesion food is only available in the Netherlands, not in Belgium. I found this precious asian diamont in the middle of the Antwerp center. Very fresh ingredients, well spiced and very royal portions. Service is very friendly. THe restaurant is very small, so reservation is recommended.

We entered this small Indonesian restaurant right in the centre of the city without having made a reservation. We got seated because we were early, but most of the tables were reserved. So, you better make a reservation. It is a small restaurant and the tables are very close to each other. Service is very friendly. The menu offers several... More

Friendly staff offered great banquet menu with unusual and tasty Indonesian morsels - small dishes deceptively filling and 4 hungry people were well satisfied.
