Great little restaurant, very cosy, family like feel to it and the cuisine is superb. Great place for a group or couple although it can get fairly noisy when full due to the close proximity of the tables but that adds to the atmosphere. A...More

Why is this restaurant number 1 on trip advisor in Napier? That's the reason I bought my family here. I admit I don't know much about Indonesian food. But I do know about fresh food and ingredients. Our 'rijs tafel' was a collection of dry...More

I am very sorry to read your disappointment in our food and service. Unfortunately I do not recall an unhappy table, nor do I feel being “jaded” although I admit some people push their boundaries.... I am aware this might fire back but I’m only...More

Thank you! Great to have amazed and impressed you. No reason why business dinners can’t be existing and fun. If the stuff you have to discuss and the company isn’t who you would prefer, you can still enjoy the Rijsttafel ;-) Kind regards, Hieke &...More

Dear customers, We are exited to inform you that we have handed over our business to 2 experienced and capable Indonesian couples Riza & Vivi and Chandra & Susan We will be working closely with them to make the change of ownership as smooth as possible. Unfortunately due to this change of ownership we are temporarily without a liquor license. So no alcoholic drinks can be served nor consumed. Hopefully this will not take long. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may cause and we are grateful for your understanding. Kind regards, Hieke & Peter and proud new owners!
