A little history. The opening of the restaurant was preceded by a substantial renovation of the former already established Chinese / Indonesian restaurant Indrapoera which at the time was already thirty years old. This restaurant was already a household name on the Rembrandtplein, where then artists like comedian Max Tailleur and many other Dutch artists of that time created a furor. Many guests had there first encounter with the delicious authentic Asian cuisine.in this venue
The new Indrapura was set up as a society-club, remembering the illustrious Dutch Indies colonial years. Featuring beautiful wooden floors, large closets, ocher-colored walls and comfortable rattan chairs, adorned with exotic prints and lamps.
In addition, the service friendly and the kitchen – under the inspiring leadership of our lady Head Chef Paula Toorop – an oasis of flavors, mixed with contemporary quality products.This led to surprising innovative cuisine from Indonesia that formed our reputation .
As a crown to this we recently had the honor and pleasure to serve His Royal Highness Prince Willem Alexander of Orange and his invitees!
World Wines and spices
Also drinking wine with Indonesian dishes received attention. It was thought that beer would be the best companion, but that idea is already contradicted by our many loyal guests. Beer just gives a feeling of fullness. With a good wine /food combination the spicy dishes can even better come to justice.
By choosing the right new world wines we can increasingly enjoy the delicious combination of fragrant spices and wine from our somewhat spicy cuisine. A kitchen that makes our renowned ‘Rijsttafels’ (ricetables) famous. And as one of the few restaurants we still offer live popular jazz piano music.
Guests from around the world
Over the years Indrapura received massive reputation outside the Netherlands.This was possible by the Internet: we launched our www.indrapura.nl in the early nineties – as one of the first restaurants –This allowed our foreign guests around the world to quickly become familiar with what our Indonesian cuisine had to offer.
The extensive media coverage in newspapers, magazines and travel guides, as well as renowned TV shows such as “The $ 40 a day show ‘underlines this. This attention led to a steady stream of enthusiastic guests. This – as well as our illustrious history of Dutch VOC spices – resulted in a huge flow of guests from around the world – both business and leisure. We can truly speak of Indrapura Restaurant;”… an Indonesian establishment of international stature…
