Shocking Service, Overpriced Food

Member Rating 1 out of 5 by AMSLocal on March 11, 2008

I've been to this restaurant twice two years apart. It's recommended in all the guidebooks so maybe once it was good but it's clearly resting on its laurels and location. The first time I was a solo diner and was moved 3 times and then they ignored me until I left (on an uncrowded Wednesday night). The second time was with a group of 4 where we were offered the table of our choice (which we took) but then the 'manager' came over and said we couldn't sit there so we moved to another table. Our first choice sat empty the entire time we were there. My friends had to concede that we, as a group, were treated very much as I was as a solo diner. The food is fine, but not great. Amsterdam has many fine Indonesian restaurants with elegant surroundings, gracious service and wonderful food. This is not the place to find it.
