Time Out says

This wood-accented spot offers a refined yet comfy homage to the Netherlands’ melding of Dutch and Indonesian food, meaning shellfish and pork abound. The nasi goreng is listed as a first course, but this generous bowl of fiery vegetable fried rice makes a fine meal. On a recent night, the toothsome, curry- and sambal oelek-laced rice was chock full of corn, scallions and haricot verts. Customize it further with a plate of Indonesian accoutrements: ground peanuts and toasted coconut, two sambals (a sweet-tart tomato and a nuttier candlenut) and little slabs of lightly pickled cucumber to cool your mouth between bites. The only non-vegetarian garnish, shrimp krupuks—Indonesian crackers—can be easily swapped out for the light-as-air cassava version.
