Lange Leidsedwarsstraat 37/41-I (627 76 27).
Large Indonesian restaurant close to Leidseplein, with friendly staff who will take time to explain the menu. That menu of course sees the usual extensive selection of dishes, the highlights being the 'rijsttafels' (rice tables), which Puri Mas also serves for solo diners which is pretty uncommon. Good value for money.
Open daily 5pm-11pm.

Elandsgracht 29 (620 95 51).
Trendy Thai restaurant in the Jordaan, popular with locals. The interior is a wonderful combination of Thai tradition and modern influences, with cane chairs wrapped in white cloth, paneled walls with modern lighting and beautiful designer chinaware, each course served on a different plate. Delicious authentic Thai cooking.
Open daily 6pm-10.30pm.

PC Hooftstraat 27 (662 81 46).
Considered by many as the best Indonesian restaurant in town. The specialty here is of course the 'Rijsttafel' , a 20-dish festive menu. Traditional Indonesian interior with rush mats and batiks. Located on PC Hooftstraat, Amsterdam's playground for the rich and the beautiful, so the sidewalk tables make for good people watching during summer.
Open noon-3pm and 6pm-10pm. Closed Sun.

Utrechtsestraat 87 (622 05 77).
Original Thai cuisine in basic white interior. Symmetrical minimalistic furnishings, like the vertically placed fluorescent tubes, are beautiful but do nothing for the acoustical qualities. The delicious food however more than makes up for this. A la carte or menus for two. Popular, so make reservations.
Open daily 6pm-11pm.

Utrechtsestraat 75 (625 67 18).
Upmarket Indonesian restaurant with authentic food. Informal atmosphere with linen tablecloths and flowers in abundance. Of course they serve a traditional rijsttafel - a multi-dish festive menu - but don't miss the simply delicious 'sateh kambing'. Remember, when it says it's hot, it's hot!
Open daily 6pm-11.30pm.

Max Eeuweplein 10 (528 77 78).
Imported from the UK, this is franchised fast food territory, but with an upmarket twist. All dishes are freshly cooked, and there's a huge variety to choose from. The downside is there are no entrees, just main and side dishes; they bring you whatever is ready, so it's a bit difficult to get any kind of order into your meal. No reservations.
Open daily 12am-11pm.
