  1. My wife and I recently tried the Andover Inn for there "rice table". We have had this in Amsterdam sevreal times. The only thing I can say is don't even bother going to the Andover Inn for this. It was a complete let down. There wer about 8 or 9 dishes and out of the 8 or 9 only two were really worth eating. The service was beyond bad,it was expensive to say the least. I would never recommend this place to anyone.

        Scooby's right, unfortunately. Blah and expensive = Andover.

        Some of the Malaysian places, such as Pandan Leaf, do serve some Indonesian dishes, but other than that, the Boston area is out of luck in the rijstafel department.

          Pandan Leaf got reincarnated as Soyas in Newton. Good cooking, but not exactly like back home.
