Mama Makan Indonesian Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Het was even zoeken naar dit adres. Wij waren zeer verrast door de mooie ambiance. De service was uitstekend. De gerechten waren heerlijk vers en "licht". Het dessert was een zeer mooie afsluiting. Origineel steeds wisselend en verschillend serviesgoed. Kortom een aanrader.
Outstanding restaurant with phenomenal staff, top notch quality and highly authentic Indonesian cuisine, and a wonderful atmosphere. Our table of 6 tried almost every main course and, without exception, were impressed! We also met the head chef whose authentic Indonesian experiences clearly show in the cuisine.
Kudos to the management team, Fabio, Hannah and their colleagues, who left every guest feeling treated like royalty. We would be delighted to return to Mama Makan.
Hands down the best service I've had in Amsterdam (although I don't frequent luxury hotels that often). It was so nice to have such attentive servers, at both the bar and restaurant, and feel that they were looking after your every whim (such as bringing over a candle when I was trying to read a newspaper in low light). The food was delicious, perfectly and subtly spiced, and great portions.
Great place! Not overcrowded and very wel organised and designed..
Service was perfect untill it got a bit bussier. Just to little personel present at the peak moment. Could be that a certain review caused them to downscale the team?? Bit misplaced if you ask me. Well trained people on the floor aswell in the kitchen.
Food was on time and very well balanced..
Coming back for shure
The service was very slow even though we have made a reservation. There were not many customers so it should not have been slow. The food was not tasty, I love Indonesian food but this was the worst one I have tried.
I would not recommend this place to anyone especially when you are very hungry.
Mama makan implies by name an informal restaurant but it was very formal and stiff without any passion for what they were making or serving. The place is modern but directly you smell the kitchen and not in a positive way. We ordered the 'Rice table'. First the amuse was served, ordinary 'Kroepoek' you can't be serieus. Than it took about 1,5 hour to get 3 small starter and the restaurant was only 20% occupied.
The soto Ayam, chicken soup, was tasteless.
The rice table took another hour, most of the small dishes were salty and not very warm. The explanation of every dish was below poor. Some of the dishes were okay but nothing was really blowing away.
