Restaurant ‘Indonesian Kitchen’ truly deserves to be called a hidden secret. The entrance of the restaurant is hidden away just below street level. You would easily pass by this restaurant located along the romantic Herengracht, without noticing. However trust us if we say that this a restaurant you don’t want to miss out on! In contrary to the modest building and interior the culinary experience is abundant, least to say. Most popular way of dining at Indonesian Kitchen is the Indonesian rice table, which allows you to taste various dishes during one meal. We strongly recommend the rice table to anyone that can appreciate both meat and fish. The rice table contains a variety of dishes with lamb, beef, fish, shrimps, gamba’s in combination with rice, vegetables and fruit. However Indonesian Kitchen is also known to have a high quality rice table with exclusively vegetarian dishes.
As a starter you can go for different styles of spring rolls and soup. As main course you will probably choose for one of the many different rice tables that are offered. Pick carefully, because there on many options that you won’t find at most of the other Indonesian restaurants.
The restaurant is popular with locals that make up for regular costumers, the reasons are obvious; consistent high quality dishes, friendly helpful staff and an owner that is really passionate about food. Combine this with a reasonable price and central location and you can tell why we rated this Indonesian restaurant one of the best in town!
If you would like to know more about your dish, the background or the ingredients, don’t hesitate to ask the restaurant owner. He is really passionate about the dishes and always tries to go the extra mile, just to stand out. Saté Kambing for instance is often made from lamb meat in the Netherlands, as goat meat is difficult to find. Not at Indonesian kitchen, here they serve real goat meat. The cooks always try and it give the dishes their own personal touch with a unique ingredient.
A complete rice table will set you back €40,- in budget, but will be worth every bit of it. For those wanting to hold back a bit you can also choose to have a one plate dish for €20,- or under.

I really loved the dishes in this restaurant. The restaurant itself is not that special, but the food makes up for it.
