                        The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and there was a nice vibe. However, we had better expectations for the food. Don’t get me wrong, the food was good, but it was really plain. We found that the food did not the have the spices and flavours that we came to appreciate travelling in Indonesia and south east Asia.

                        I would not bother going here. considering it is linked to a Hyatt hotel, the service is appalling (I am being polite). Waited to be seated for around 10 mins, ignored by staff as they walked past us. Had to request we got our drinks, got our table cleared, short changed on the dessert. Waited ages to get any staff attention and yet there were plenty of them. They felt it more important to set tables then deal with customers that were dining there. Several people actually got up to go and pay their bill at a till. Heard the table next to us complaining about the slowness in their food arriving and so not just us! It is a set menu, which is not really indicated on the website so be warned as it is that or nothing and even then only 2 of the sides were available on the night. The most expensive meal of our stay and yet the worst in terms of service and value for money. Plenty of nicer places to go eat at.

                        Had vegan rijst tafel and the food was very greasy. Lots of deep fried food - not like any rijsttafel I have ever had before. The food was deep fried at the wrong temperature making it greasy and oily. The tempura batter tasted like oil as well. Almost every dish was accompanied by cheap commercial sweet chilly sauce. The dessert was tasteless. Looks like they resorted to store bought chocolate cake brown bits. All evening after the meal I felt sick. I could go on but I expect the restaurant will ask open table to remove this review. The whole meal was outrageously overpriced. Don't eat there!

                        Very slow service with drinks (+30 mins). Eating with fork and knife at an "Indonesian" restaurant, serious no spoon? Sate was very dry. We had to hurry with the starters because they want to serve out main very soon. Restaurant is fine if you only want to go for a quick meal.

                        Real good food, very tasty classic rijsttafel. Very friendly service. However, waiting times were very, very long, altough the staff worked at high pace all the time. There was just not enough staff on this very busy Saturday evening. The menu is a bit overpriced, especially the pricing of the wines is way over the top. All in all value for maney is on the edge.

                        Hoge prijs voor een vast menu. Aantal hapjes erg lekker, maar de vis en de kip waren te gaar en koud en porties erg klein. Klein beetje rijst voor 2 personen en na het eten dat snel achtercelkaar kwam geen bediening meer gezien.

                        Food was good. Overall experience was so so because of the staff issues. Understood that most of the staff was in quarantine because of COVID 19 so giving them a bit of a break on that.

                        Really nice ambience and decor. Food was delicious but the vegetarian rijsttafel had a lot of deep fried dishes. The value is okay but in comparison, other Indonesian restaurants offer more variety in their Rijsttafel for less money. Overall, we really enjoyed our evening here :)

                        Unfortunately the staff was not good. We told the staff multiple times that we don’t eat meat, but do eat fish/shrimps. We couldn’t find the old dishes they had so we needed some help choosing. We ended up with a Nasi Goreng and Mie Goreng, both delivered stuffed with chicken. We also asked if they had something with shrimps. We were told no, but there were shrimps in the Mie and Nasi as well. We had to send one of the plates back, the other ones got cold in the meantime, and the the Nasi came back vegan style with tofu, while we asked for shrimps. They were not listening at all, the food was not good, the portions way too big and the bill was over expensive. We paid 75 euro’s for water and tea, 2 main courses and 2 sides (beans and salad) ridiculous.

                        Had a wonderful Sunday brunch. We loved the rendang pancake, the chicken & waffle and the chicken sambal with rice. Very nice modern decorations, especially the many design lamps from the ceiling. Still a cozy atmosphere. Service was very good. It was our first visit, but definitively not our last!

                        Absolutely appalling service, explained as being the result of using 'agency staff'. Disgraceful way to treat a customer. Food just ok too.

                        Service was not so good. We were sitting for 15 minutes before the menu came and another 15 minutes before our wine arrived.

                        Twee jaar geleden de rijsttafel geprobeerd maar die vond ik zeer tegenvallen. Gisteren gerechten gekozen van de a la carte menukaart maar die wederom niet smaakvol. De karige sorbet (één mini bol) en kant en klare coconut mouse waren absoluut niet dessert waardig in tegenstelling tot twee jaar geleden (bowl van exotisch fruit met sorbet ijs). Tot slot de tamarind twist waar geen tamarinde smaak te bekennen was... Het restaurant heeft een prachtige ambiance en het personeel is vlot / vriendelijk en die kwaliteit verwacht je logischerwijs van de gerechten, de prijs / kwaliteits verhouding laat zeker te wensen over.

                        My personal opinion is that the food and the wine is to expensive. The quality is good. The waitress wasn’t fun at all. She was polite in a very uninterested non inspirational way. When I made a little joke to break the ice she pretended I didn’t make it. Grumpy. That did helpmate all in having a fun night out.

                        It has very good food from Indonesia. Had the tasting menu, the starts, rice and desserts were very good. Hot dishes were a little to spicy for me and the fish was a little over cook. Could have a bigger selection of wines by the glass, like albariño, Sicily or south of France.
