We are regular - and until now very happy -clients The food is always very good and tasty and the atmosphere is warm. However, this time we were disappointed by the hygiene standards. The floor was sticky and there was a mouse running between the tables when it was no longer very full. We hope that this is a problem that will be solved quickly.

We had the Surakarta Rijstaffel for 2. We did not finish the meal as it was just too much food! The waitress packed our leftover without any extra charge. We also appreciated the hot water refill on our ginger tea! The foods are great, and quite authentic Javanese. It is a bit on the sweeter side, but that is just how Javanese Indonesian food is! During our stay they had to turn away a couple of groups simply because they were really full at 6pm! So definitely get a reservation before coming.

Food was okay. Some of the meats felt a bit hard and tasted like they had been stewing for a long time. Made the mistake of paying 6 euro for the water at the table, and when asked for regular water, we were given another bottle of the expensive water.

We ordered two different kinds of Rice menus offering a combination of different Indonesian dishes. All were excellent and showing a wide range of flavours. Very recommendable. Also, the staff was very friendly.

My friend Sander recommended this fantastic restaurant as this is where he takes his students and fellow lecturers for dinner. My son and I loved the food and the atmosphere. Service was great too. Thank you

Uitgebreide rijsttafel Surakarta. Goed bereid, smakelijk. Royaal. Zeer aan te bevelen. Tijdig reserveren. Druk. Attente, vriendelijke service.

We loved our experience in Surakarta. After being warmly received we were shown to our table. Our waitress was extremely friendly and kind and even answered some questions about the dishes. The beef renadang and the goat curry were extremely tasty. Keep it up.

My go-to restaurant for Indonesian food in Leiden - the food is delicious, and the service is great! Especially good when I have vegetarian guests visiting, as the vegetarian rijsttafel is really varied and tasty. Thank you!

Nice decor and ambiance. Great food both in quality and quantity and the Rijstafel is really a must! Too bad the drink menu doesn’t match the food one.

Restaurant Surakarta has its origin in the Middle- Java cuisine. This is a very specialised kitchen and differs from the other Indonesian food because they use less hotness and more sweetness in their cooking. Do try the lemper ayam, soto and sajoer lodeh and spicy it up with one of their three homemade sambals. Take away and catering is part of their kind service.
