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).

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

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
