Really delicious foods and dishes! Rich of flavours and textures. The ambiance in the restaurant is cosy and has contemporary feel. The hundreds of lamps designed as “wish balloons” make a dreamy exotic atmosphere. My requests to avoid certain ingredients because of allergies were respectfully taken care of. We’ve had a wonderful unforgettable anniversary dinner. Thank you Mama Makan! =^•^=

It is a nice place, but the food quality was very disappointing, especially for a 'rijst tafel'. The least authentic Indonesian dishes I have ever eaten.

If you want to taste Indonesian food for the first time, then is Mama Makan an excellent choice. Everything is home made, awesome flavors and very nice presentation. We had the non vegetarian rijsttafel and some extra dishes (like the lumpia with tofu and chestnuts, chicken satay, saoto soup, and we really did enjoyed each of them, having each its distinctive flavor and taste. I'm very well known in the Indonesian kitchen, but still I was admiring each plate. Thank you for this wonderful experience, I'll come back soon!

It was our third time, and this time I was quite upset because the dishes were not warm enough. Maybe a suggestion : something on the table to keep it warm ? I knwo how much it is fantastic when all the warm dishes are enough warm when arriving on the table that you don't need to run for avoiding the last dishes to be sadly not warm enough... Because of that, I am not sure to come back for the rice table, and not sure to recommend the table rice to a friend. Otherwise, the breakfast is great, the service is great, and the decoration is great.

A perfect setting for a special meal. Excellent service and kindness. Quiet - we were able to talk and enjoy. The pace was perfect. Some of the dishes were great and we appreciated the recommendations for extras we might like.

Beautiful restaurant. Maar bijna 20 euro voor een blok tempeh met dikke sate sauce erop, en witte rijst, zonder enige groenten is het echt niet waard.
Dessert "mango mouse" had inderdaad Ganache erin, maar de rest was gewoon mango blokjes in soort van slagroom, dus beetje misleidend. Maar wel heerlijke wijnen.
Hoop dat mijn volgende bezoek een betere zal zijn. (Iedereen verdiend een 2e kans).

Had a nice dinner for 2. The rice table, which was kind of a course menu concept was great. The food tasted authentic indonesian but had als a lot of surprises with their own characteristics. Overall, the service included, it was a fine dining experience.

Soep was lauw, de bediening ging te snel met haar verhaal en kwam nauwelijks vragen of alles naar wens was en of we nog wat nodig hadden. Wij moesten steeds zelf roepen als we wat nodig hadden en reactie duurde lang. Jammer want had er meer van verwacht.

I loved the food and the ambiance is great. Also everything looks very clean, from the open kitchen to the toilets. The staff was very friendly and also all with facemask.
The price is good for what you get, we had the ‘ricetable’ menu. Some dishes were too spicy for me, but it’s Indonesian kitchen, so it is what it is!
