This is a quiet little place on a corner of 7th Avenue in Park Slope. I found it quite by accident. Apparently the hipsters have not yet discovered Indonesian food, so much the better for accessibility. We walked right in on a snowy January Saturday night. The owner is on site and she's a sweetheart, warmly welcoming. The food was... More

it's OK for this style of food, but their platter was very average and hardly of the most appetizing quality. This style is not much better in Indo, either!

Had dinner here last night with my husband. The food was exceptionally good, and from what I was told by my husband, who is Filipino/Indonesian, quite authentic. We had the 15 dish Rijsttafel combination dinner, which included many varied dishes. The only problem we encountered was the rather slow service, since there was only one waiter for the entire place... More

Had the Rijsttafel with another couple. Tiny Mom & Pop place with prompt and courteous service. Food out of this world, at a reasonable price. Impossible to leave this place hungry. Wish there were one in my neighborhood.

We have been coming to this restaurant for years...the food is addictive and delicious and made to order. This is not your typical restaurant, but a unique trip to Indonesia and Amsterdam! Not a weak dish on the menu. A lovely and peaceful atmosphere with extremely friendly and accommodating staff. If you have the time, try the rijsttafel, a wonderful... More

We went as a family of 4. It is lovly and intimate as well as welcoming. The young teenagers both found a good dish to eat and as everything is cooked from fresh, they were able to specify how spicy or not they wanted it. Meanwhile we had the 50 dollars tapas (15) dishes menu for 2. It was gorgeous!!... More

Although we went to dinner at this restaurant for no other reason than proximity/convenience, we ended up recommending it within a day to many others. With only two people and little time, we did not order the full rijsttafel, which leaves us something to look forward to. We ordered a stuffed tofu appetizer to share (tahu isi--crispy and hot, but... More

My sweet Dutch husband and I stole away to NYC for a quick anniversary trip. I wanted to surprise him with some Bitterballen and Saucijzenbroodjes but couldn't find any Dutch restaurants. But I hoped he would be just as excited about a Rijsttafel. We went with a local friend, and had the Rijsttafel for 3 (you have two choices, one... More
