Excellent service and food! They serve you with some entrees and then white rice with several small portions of delicious dishes. They even gave us a complimentary serving of mango sorbet! GooglePlace - November 2017

Warm and friendly welcome from the staff, nice dishes. Be prepared to eat a lot. Very nice food and not too spicy for Europeans. Kind introduction of all the dishes. On the board, 2 different menus: the traditional one and the vegetarian one. I can just suggest to go there. GooglePlace - November 2017

Fantastic food at a great price. Set menu means you may never have eaten indonesian food and yet you get a fantastic selection of 12 dishes. Way too much for us to finish so come hungry! Under 50 euros for two inc beer. Excellent value GooglePlace - October 2017

We tried to go to Kartika twice. The first time was when we first arrived in Amsterdam so we got to the restaurant at 10pm. They closed at 10:30pm so they turned us away, which was understandable. Our second attempt, we got there at 5:10pm the next day. The waiter actually remembered us from the previous night. They opened at 5:00pm so we thought it would be good to get there early to beat the dinner crowd. The waiter (name started with a P) was unusually curt with us and said the kitchen was not open yet and if we wanted to have dinner there we couldn’t be in a rush. I said we weren’t in a big rush, but asked how long before the kitchen would be open (an odd thing for a kitchen to not be open, but the restaurant is). He said, “maybe 20 minutes, but I can’t be sure. If you are in a rush then I don’t know”. I told him 20 minutes was fine, but “maybe” if it’s more, then we were hesitant. Then he proceeds to say it would be 45 minutes to an hour. How did you go from maybe 20 minutes to 45 minutes to an hour? He remembered us from the other night, so his rudeness was incredibly unusual. Not once did he apologize, but instead made it seem as if we were at fault for trying to grab an early dinner. Kartika has really great reviews and the only bad ones I saw were in regards to horrible service. I attached a photo of the rude waiter (found on Yelp). GooglePlace - October 2017
