There are plenty of mediocre late-night eateries around the Leidseplein, but the bamboo'd and somewhat-cramped Bojo stands out for serving huge portions of enjoyable food. You'll find everything here, from saté (skewered and barbecued meats) to vegetarian gado-gado (vegetables drowned in a spicy peanut sauce) to their one-plate rice tables where several different small dishes are brought together. Two notes: Bojo is open daily until 2 am and credit cards
are only accepted if you spend €35 or more.

On the basis of last night's 'Bojo experience' we certainly won't be returning. Second-rate food (some of which re-appeared very early this morning - don't ask...), irritatingly unctuous service, a draughty front door and insufficient space between tables all made for a very disappointing evening. The 'rice table' is a mini version served on one plate. Hardly 'monumental'!

This was a terrible example of Indonesian food. It almost convinced us that we hated Indonesian food until we tried the Kantjil restaurant on Spuistraat street. Bojo does not serve a traditional rijsttafel meal (with 11 sides). They have 1 plate called a mini ristafel. It is too small for even one person.
