Tried on recommendation, exceeded all our expectations . The rijsttafel consisting of about 20 different dishes is amazing. Very good value. Extremely friendly staff. Highly recommended.

This was our first time trying Indonesian food. The owners are Dutch and seem to be very passionate about the food served here. We enjoyed the Rijsttafel as it was a great sampling of multiple dishes. Lots of variety and spice (but only Kiwi spicy).
Yes I would probably agree with all the positive reviews, BUT, when our party arrived, despite many empty tables, the person greeting us looked around and then said “I’m sorry, but I can’t seat you”. She was quite curt, with zero courteous or helpful explanation...More
Not friendly! How sad to read your disappointment.... on “a-social” media, on the same device you could have used to make a reservation! When your party walked into a fully booked restaurant, with some empty tables, RESERVED by soon to arrive guest, these tables will...More
This dinner brought back memories from my earlier "rijsttafels" (rice dishes) in Holland. An excellent variety of dishes with beautiful flavours, very well presented. Very friendly staff. The decoration was also very appropriate with several Indonesian artworks on the walls, soft lighting, very nice atmosphere....More
It’s such a pleasure to see people enjoying their Rijsttafel experience! And then a few days later even read this lovely review. This definitely is “A delightful experience” for us too, thank you! Kind regards, Hieke & Peter (Owners) and Staff Restaurant Indonesia (Established 1983)
Great food and flavours, love the sharing concept, very good service and good location! It’s good that you can buy their sauces to take home with different levels of spice. We were able to watch the sunset and having the glass doors open made of...More

Exceptional food, fabulous service and reasonable prices. Such wonderful flavors, we had the Beef Rendang and Nasi Goreng, generous sized meals and delicious flavours. We also had the green sands and iced tea drinks, which were refreshing and complimentary to the meals. An added option...More

Napier is surprisingly well catered for with ethnic restaurants. The Indonesia Restaurant is one of these. We did book and the restaurant was fairly full. It is a quaint place well located on Marine Parade. Parking is on the street and we had no problems...More
Thank you for dining with us and writing this review. Usually people from neighboring motels walk to the restaurant but if people prefer to drive, there is always plenty free parking nearby. Looking forward to your return visit. No need to persuade your wife, you...More
Beautiful food Prompt service Quaint little place - MUST BOOK! Appropriately priced Well located little restaurant with a beautiful menu. If you want something a little less formal and easy going / relaxed for a quiet night out with friends, but doesn’t sacrifice “easy going”...More

2nd time in 4 years we have travelled hours and hours to Napier to enjoy the Rijsttafel supreme. It is just simply gorgeous, there is not one dish that you cannot say you didn’t enjoy. The food is authentically cooked to perfection and the service...More
Thank you very much for your return visit. If I remember well you were even sitting at the same table, although this was a coincidence. I’m happy it was as good as you remembered. Might see you again in four years?! Kind regards, Hieke &...More
