Opening Hours

Aneka Rasa translated from Indonesian means “Various Taste”. The name originates from the fact that Indonesia consists of about 6000 islands. In every region the cuisine varies significantly and has many different influences –whether from India, the Middle East, China or Europe. The word “Rijsttafel” originates from Dutch, even though all the dishes served are undoubtedly Indonesian. During their presence in Indonesia, Dutch people introduced the rijsttafel or the so called rice table. The reason behind that was not only to enjoy variety of dishes at the same time but also to impress the coming visitors with the fascinating size of their colony. A rice table features a selection of dishes varying in flavors, colors, degree of spiciness and textures (crispy, chewy, soft, etc.). Usually the meals vary in number starting from 4 and sometimes reaching even 40.Our Rice Tables don’t make an exception of the above description. We offer three different rice tables, each of which consists of 14 small sample dishes nicely arranged on a warm réchaud (a metal instrument that keeps the food warm for certain period of time and allows you to enjoy your meal all evening).

Tips from the Net @ Aneka Rasa

We ordered rice table and everything was tasting great. Service was a bit slow, we ate our food halfway and drinks were still not served. After paying tge bill we went out for a walk around the neighbourhood before going back to our hotel room. One hour later we walked by the front door of the restarant and saw a male staff from this restaurant dumped out the contents of a garbage can onto the street, plastic cups and takeout food containers along with leftover food spilling all over the street. The man closes his empty garbage bin and took it back inside. That was a totally disgusting and unacceptable behaviour and I hope it is not the standard procedure of this restaurant to get rid of its garbage. GooglePlace - July 2017

Horrible tourist trap! The Reistafel has no distinct flavors at all. Worst one I ever had. They served the 5 of us the same amount of food as for tables of 2 - but charged for 5! GooglePlace - June 2017

The rijstafel was heavenly! Takes me back to Asia. Really loved the veal with sweet soy sauce and the satay. GooglePlace - June 2017

Friendly Staff! Heavenly food! Must try when coming to Amsterdam. It's a selection of 10 dishes or so. Their rice cakes with the peanut butter sauce are to die for. Totally recommended GooglePlace - April 2017
