Resto Santai: A tiny piece of Indonesia on the Biltstraat

Biltstraat is a breeding ground for amazing food, which is proven once more by Indonesian restaurant Resto Santai. Does that name sound familiar? You might know Santai as a small takeaway place on the Oudegracht. Both Resto Santai and Santai’s Takeaway have a clear theme for their interior design. Modern in white and blue with a touch of traditional Indonesian details. A delightful mix of old and new!

One look at the menu and it’s not hard to imagine you’re in Indonesia. There’s a large selection of traditional Indonesian cuisine available, but for a complete experience you have to try a ‘Rijsttafel’. ‘Rijsttafel’ literally means rice table in Dutch and it means your table will be filled with a little bit of everything!

As a group of five, we decided to order the largest, most diverse ‘Rijsttafel’. It was aptly named after the restaurant: Santai. The waitress advised us to order a portion of 4 instead of 5, experience had taught her that would be more than enough. Our table was soon filled up with little ‘boats’ containing delicious dishes: tender chicken legs, delicately seasoned vegetables, crunchy prawn crackers and much more. Every bite was a tiny moment of pure bliss.

If you find yourself on the Biltstraat, this small piece of Indonesia is definitely worth a trip!
