Unfortunately this restaurant is not existing anymore. We went there on 10th July '14. Maybe they moved to another location but there were no signs estimating this.

Even during power failure everybody was relaxed. Will go back soon. It is a small restaurant. The service is quick without getting the feeling being hurried. A variety of dishes that go very well together.

This was my first time eating Indonesian (ristoffel?) cuisine. I was leary about the spiciness and so we ordered it mild and I'm glad we did. Each of the dishes were wonderful and there was plenty of food. A nice dining experience.

The setting is small and al fresco. We chose the multi-course rijstoffel menu, with a variety of small dishes and skewered meats served with rice. Delicious!

We had never had Indonesian food before. It was great I had the local Indonesian/Dutch specialty called a rice table or rijsttafel. A variety of tapas and rice or noodles. So delicious and spicey that my wife wanted to return despite the burning lips!

Great service, freshly prepared food. We enjoyed the rijsstofel. Not the cheapest, but well worth the price. Reasonable wine list, well paired.

We sought this place out based on reviews of places to get rijsttafel. It's a bit challenging to find the place, and while the Avila hotel is a good landmark, Batavia is NOT "across the street" from the Avila. It's about 2 blocks before the...More

We were told that this is the best place to try the Indonesian specialty called "rijsttafel" but that the service is very slow. Both are true. I would recommend it but only if you have patience. It is also located across from "Fishalicious", a fabulous...More
