Blauw is the place for perfectly cooked Indonesian food; indeed it's hard to imagine better, even in Jakarta. Perfectly blended flavours, right down to the amuse-bouche of home-made sambal, leave diners swooning with delight.
And any main comes with a veritable feast of extra miniplates so there's no need to opt for a rijsttafel to get a satisfyingly varied meal. The restaurant's name is misleading – far from blue (blauw), the brooding, almost windowless interior is black and bright red. The giant family portrait features the founder's grandma as a child.
