Indrapura: Restaurant Indrapura on Rembrandt Square already ended up on the first place in the big rice table test a while ago. And we get why! The rice table has everything you could wish for – and more. And if you finish your dinner before eight, you even get a 25 per cent discount on your rice table. So collect some of your friends and go here for dinner!

Long Pura: This Indonesian Restaurant is located on the Rozengracht and is open 7 days a week. What to expect? Traditional dishes, made according to family recipes. Must be good!
Toko Manis: For an amazing take-away meal, go to Toko Manis in the Jordaan. The chef has learned to cook from his mother a long time ago and he now cooks the most amazing things. Yum!
