Sarang Mas

When visiting Amsterdam, I don't think it's possible to overdose on Rijstafels, nor can I get bored with them (they're just too good & I can't get them at home).

Sarang Mas' interior is a little bit more upscale than Sukasari (see review at this site) as is the price, but not nearly as loud & crowded as Kantjil en de Tijger.

The rice table I had at Sarang Mas (they made me a special combination of seafood and meat rijstafel on safron rice.... yum) was excellent, and the staff was extremely helpful and patient. Sarang Mas offers a full menu of Indonesian appetizers and entrees as well.

With beers it all came to about 30 EU for one person (yes, in my shame I confess, it was so good I ate the entire rijstafel by myself, to the shock & amusement of the staff ... oink). Again, not quite as inexpensive as Sukasari, but the food, service, and ambience were excellent, and well worth it.

Sarang Mas has a website that appears to be a work-in-progress at http://www.sarangmas.nl

Between Sarang Mas, Sukasari, and Kantjil en de Tijger, you can't lose when you're looking for your Indonesian "fix". Choosing one is mostly just a question of "Which one is closest to where I'm standing at this minute?" Enjoy. dave_from_CO


More Info: Sarang Mas is at Damrak 44, north of Dam Square almost exactly in between Central Station and Dam Square in Nieuwezijds section. If you walk north on Damrak from the Dam Square towards Centraal Station and you come to Oudebrugstoog intersection, turn around and go back one block south...you just passed it. For hours of operation, I am hopeful that by the time this is posted, their web site will be completed, or you will have to call. I had dinner from 18:00 - 20:00 and I know they serve lunch as well.
